Can disaffiliated Greek life save itself?

As the fall 2018 Greek life rush continues across campus, disaffiliated fraternities and their relationships with incoming students are left in an uncertain purgatory. Fraternities officially affiliated with the University of Michigan operate under a well-defined framework of rules. They’re geared to further focus on charitable work, inclusion and academic performance. Even the signing of bids for students chosen fraternities is administered through Interfraternity Council personnel.

On Tuesday afternoon, President Donald Trump expressed his sympathy for young men in America while speaking to reporters outside the White House. In his words: “It is a very scary time for young men in America, where you can be guilty of something you may not be guilty of.” His view represents a wider concern among some conservative Americans in light of the accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and the #MeToo movement at large.

Wolverines Abroad

“My parents took me to Paris when I was 13 and the minute I saw the Eiffel Tower, I knew I was going to study abroad here, eventually.”

“My mom studied abroad in Spain, so I want to follow in her footsteps.”

“I’m trying to visit a new country every weekend. I’ve had this planned out since freshman year.”

The drinking water of the Great Lakes State is, once again, in danger. While the citizens of Flint are still combating the presence of lead in their water, another lesser known chemical, PFAS also  threatens the purity of Michigan’s most abundant natural resource.

The Michigan Daily Editorial Board calls upon the Ann Arbor City Council and the state of Michigan to take more affirmative steps to inform the Ann Arbor community of the dangers of PFAS, mitigate the damage that has been done and implement strategies to protect citizens from further harm.

Why believing women matter

I watched psychologist Christine Blasey Ford testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee in awe of her courage, patriotism, sacrifice, trauma and tragedy. Of all the things said and done throughout the two days of proceedings, one thing struck me most of all: She was 15 when Brett Kavanaugh locked her in a room and assaulted her, covering her mouth so she could not scream for help.

My sister is 15.

Embrace the nuclear option

Any contender for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020 should support packing the Supreme Court — that is, voting to expand the maximum number of seats so the president can confirm a liberal majority.

The 2018 Emmy Awards aired on Sept. 17, 2018 and made history with the most diverse group of nominees ever. Twenty percent more non-white actors were nominated this year than last, with 36 nominations going to people of color. These figures brought many inside and outside of the Hollywood community hope for a positive trend toward inclusion and representation.

Too often women neglect the sexism we ourselves propagate. It is easy to blame day-to-day adversities on the patriarchy when it is such an obvious source of culpability. From people like Harvey Weinstein and Brett Kavanaugh to issues like the wage gap and paid maternity leave, it seems as though the news cycle is teeming with examples of powerful men suppressing women’s freedom and autonomy.
