As a coalition of concerned graduate students of color and those in solidarity at Brown University, we come together to articulate our vision for a more equitable, responsible, and inclusive university.
I took my first "Little" during Spring recruitment of my Freshman year. My "Big" has always been my guide, not only in learning more about my sorority, but she also introduced me to the Greek family that existed within our campus community.
Living overseas shattered my routine; it fixed what I did not even know was broken. Here are 4 ways living abroad has liberated me.
In particular, it would be very useful for prospective students to know which colleges offer the most bang for their buck, and a good approximation for this goal is to rank colleges by the ratio of student earnings after graduation to their debt at graduation.
There's another reason why people travel, and it's intrinsic to the act of tearing oneself from familiar comforts to experience something else, something new. And in this newness, we hope to learn about ourselves.
Cheating at business schools of all sizes is widespread, according to a study a few years ago by the Association to Advance College Schools of Business, which accredits 740 of the world's best business schools in 50 countries.
When people see my husband and I -- he, the "good looking" male and me, the "fat" woman -- supporting each other and showcasing our love, it challenges stereotypes.
When will college campuses provide the security where women won't be scared to walk alone to their classes? Where women won't have to feel violated? When women won't have to protect themselves from unwanted attention? When will no actually mean no?
In the spirit of Thanksgiving (which is indeed a holiday, despite people's best efforts to skip over it and go straight to Christmas), I've decided to write a blog post over something I am and have been thankful for over the past four years.
The addiction takes over at exactly 9:30 A.M. on business days. I hold my breath to see what phases the stock market. Could Pfizer skyrocket over 50 percent because of news for a groundbreaking cancer drug? Could McDonald's dip 50 percent because of higher than expected trans fat in Big Macs?
The woman told us again that she would pray for us, and we promised that we would do the same for her, and the city lights of a battle-scarred Syria twinkled on the horizon, and the night was very quiet, and I felt very small, and very big.
This week, as you gather with family and friends to celebrate Thanksgiving, be mindful of the high school seniors seated at the table. Odds are they don't want to talk about their college applications any more than you want to talk about work.
Make this Friendsgiving one for the books.
I love Mizzou today just as much as I did the first day I learned about it. The only way that we are ever going to grow as a university, and as a community, is to listen to what everyone has to say.

The number of universities offering an intelligence studies-related degree started with a handful. It has now expanded to a few dozen. Universities are starting to develop curricula that feature practical real-world exercises and structural analytical techniques.
In the discussions of the events now taking place on an increasing number of college campuses the phrases "free speech" and "academic freedom" are routinely invoked. Neither is an appropriate rubric for the analysis of what is happening.
