If you’ve been out and about in the past couple of years, chances are you’ve come across some form of “Reagan-Bush ’84” apparel. Whether it’s a hat, laptop sticker or shirt, the vintage campaign logo has made a revival in mainstream fashion today.

Nothing summons up visions of Valentine’s Day like roses, a box of chocolates or a roundtable on international law and justice. On Feb. 14, the University of Michigan International Institute hosted a roundtable to commemorate the closing of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in 2017 after 24 years of international justice. This roundtable event looked at whether the future of international law and justice is brighter due to the ICTY.

As I write this, it’s the evening of St. Patrick’s Day in Ann Arbor, and for perhaps the first time all day, the city is silent. Every television in town is tuned to the same network with the same three numbers lit across the bottom of every screen: 61, 63, 3.6.

A lot of the arguments about free speech on campus — at least the ones to which I’ve been privy — frame the controversy as whether or not it’s legitimate to “debate” white nationalists, given that debate appears to put outdated and (reasonably labeled) dangerous ideas on the same plane as basic intersectionality and values of liberal democracy.

The idea of peer tutoring has always seemed to be a misnomer. In order for someone to tutor, certainly his or her abilities in the subject surpass the abilities of the person being taught.

Therefore, the cultivation of these skills could only come from a very controlled source.

A recently-published Vox article claims a radical counter-narrative to one of the most contentious subjects on college campuses across the U.S. According to the news outlet’s co-founder, Matthew Yglesias, “support for free speech” is actually on the rise among liberal college students.

Central Student Government will forever be an organization that I cherish and revere. I’ve had the immense privilege of serving the student body this past year as the assembly’s School of Kinesiology representative. In so many ways, this organization has shaped and molded me as a person — it has pushed and driven my passion for serving others, motivated me to pursue my biggest and most ambitious ideas, humbled me and given me perspective on the experiences and issues that many of my peers encounter on a daily basis.
