Passover is a holiday of liberation, retelling the story of Jewish slaves in Egypt and their exodus. We use food to symbolize different parts of the story: maror to remind us of the bitterness of slavery; charoset to represent the mortar used to build the pyramids; karpas to celebrate the welcoming of spring and new life with salt water to reminds us of our ancestors’ tears; and matzah to remind us of the rush of the exodus as the bread didn’t have time to rise — eat that for a week and you’ll be newly grateful for any yeast you can find.

The University of Michigan has exceptional academics, athletics, alumni and more, but it is severely lacking in one area: providing mental health education and awareness of resources on campus. The University’s First Year Experience programs are excellent in providing freshmen with information on sexual assault, bystander intervention and the dangers of binge drinking.

Everybody who went to a stereotypical American high school or has even just seen “Gossip Girl” knows that high schools have cliques. If you walk into the cafeteria, a quick scan of seating arrangements reveals these exclusive groups: The jocks sit in the corner booth, the theater kids sit with each other, as do the nerds and the band kids take their food to go eat in the band room. Nevertheless, every year there is one kid who shocks the world and moves from the nerd table to the jock table by either hitting the gym all summer or somehow getting a girl who sits at that table (Hey Dan).

I am a dual French and Cellular and Molecular Biology major at the University of Michigan, and I am responding to The Daily article titled, An Open Letter to the French Department. My perspective is different insofar as I had not spoken a word of French until my arrival at the University of Michigan.

Over the past year, I’ve decided to join a variety of Facebook groups. In a way, it’s the return of the Facebook likes of the past. When I was a kid, I’d like some interesting or funny one-liner that was, as the kids say, “#relatable” and then I would immediately forget about it for something more important, like the number of likes my last Facebook photo received. These liked pages would show up on my feed for a few days, my friends would like these pages and then they’d be gone forever.

A few weeks ago, when I was sitting in bed and recieved email from MVision offering me a position to run as a representative candidate, I was truly overjoyed. I felt everything I had worked so hard on this year was building and good things would be coming my way. I was proud to be a part of something that was not only a campaign, but also a message to the people on this campus. I am so glad I accepted the offer and I am writing now as an elected representative.
