Removing OSCA Options for Low-Income Students Exclusionary, Not Equitable

Nick Rowan Bassman, Contributing Writer

If I were entering the Class of 2021, I would no longer be able to afford Oberlin College. It wouldn’t matter if the College met 100 percent of my demonstrated need. Without the money I’ve saved by living and dining in Oberlin Student Cooperative Association, I wouldn’t be able to afford to travel to and from Ober...

Limited Number of Humanities Classes Pigeonholes Students

Jackie Brant, Columnist

Registration season is a stressful time for many students. We worry about when our registration slot will be, if we will get into the classes we need and, if we don’t, if we will be able to successfully navigate add/drop period. As a first-year this spring, I had the second-to-last registration window. By the time I got to p...

Not since the release of NCAA Football 14 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 have sports fans been able to play with their favorite collegiate athletes.

Ever since Jackson joined the Knicks organization in 2014, he has been eager to take cheap shots at Anthony whenever possible. As the poster child of the Knic...
