Students Neglect Existing Communication Channels

Editorial Board

The trustees’ decision to create a task force to investigate adding student representation to the board is a credit to everyone involved. Student Senate deserves praise for creating the initial proposal and building a relationship with the board, as do student activists for adding pressure at a key moment and the board...

Controversial Speakers Deserve Fair Platform

Will Cramer, Contributing Writer

Author Charles Murray was invited last week to speak at Middlebury College in a move that was certain to invite controversy.

Philosophy Department Responds to Gender Disparities

Jackie Brant, Contributing Writer

As I argued in the Review several weeks ago, women are underrepresented in philosophy, both in Oberlin’s department and the field as a whole (“Philosophy Departments Lack Diversity,” Feb. 10, 2017).

Dan Bisno, Columnist

“Ha sido sólo un susto” — It was only a scare. Fernando Torres tweeted those words following the traumatic header that could have cost him his career, not to mention his life.
