Francfort: Taking Ownership

(10/11/12 2:00am)

In the aftermath of the recent hazing scandal, administrators have been working to change some of the common practices among Greek organizations and other student groups that fall under the College's definition of hazing. However, it's time that students themselves step up to take ownership of this issue. We need to look at the traditions that we as a College hold so dear and reassess which ones add value to our community and which detract. Changes that protect the health and safety of all students without severing our ties to this school's great history will only come when we can collectively decide what builds us into the people we hope to be and what distracts us from that goal.

Daily Debriefing

(10/11/12 2:00am)

Considering the legality of affirmative action, the Supreme Court heard arguments on Wednesday regarding the use of race in admissions decisions, The New York Times reported. Justice Anthony Kennedy, who likely possesses the decisive vote on the split issue, could change the policies of admissions programs of universities nationwide. Kennedy has never voted in favor of an affirmative action program. The last major case about affirmative action was heard in April 2003, when the court voted 5-4 in favor of continuing to consider race in the University of Michigan's acceptance process. Although the 2003 decision was predicted to last 25 years, the issue is being revisited only nine years after the decision due to a change in members of the Court, according to The Times.

The United States needs to revamp and reinvent its current economic policies to compete with Chinese state-run capitalism and the massive job shift from west to east, according to Tuck School of Business professor Richard D'Aveni.
