Editorial: Students lack appreciation for campus workers

Northeastern students need to be more aware and appreciative of the people who work behind the scenes on campus. Whether it be as small as making conversation or as large as joining a club to fight for workers’ rights, the gap needs to be bridged.

Editorial: The backlash to Aziz Ansari scandal is discouraging for us all

The response to the Aziz Ansari scandal says a lot more about the culture around sexual assault than it does about either the accuser or the accused.

Editorial: Success doesn’t come from major

It is not an issue that adults expect the next generation to have an organized plan for their life, but it has reached the level where it is part of our culture to judge groups of people based on their college major. Even more concerning is the influence that our salary-obsessed society has on where money is allocated within schools and universities.

Editorial: We must be aware of emerging technology’s risks

Consumers need to adapt to the concept that they too are responsible for their digital footprint. We cannot remain a faceless mass, unhesitatingly waiting in line for the technology that could well become our undoing.

Editorial: NEU Too warrants response from administration

Editorial: NEU Too warrants response from administration

Northeastern University Police Department officers took down the posters that campaign members put up at midnight Nov. 30 long before classes began that day, so very few students got the chance to see them. Furthermore, the university neither commented to student publications regarding the campaign nor sent out an acknowledgement to any students. The dismissive attitude of the university toward student activism sends a clear, albeit implicit, message that the topic is not worth their time.

Editorial: We can do more to combat media illiteracy

Not everyone will become part of the media and not everyone will respect the fields involved in creating media. Regardless, everyone will consume it. There should be systems in place to ensure that we consume news it in a way that is smart, productive and helps foster communication.

Editorial: Paradise Papers should be a catalyst for change

Editorial: Paradise Papers should be a catalyst for change

It is unclear how much of the endowment is invested in EnCap or if the university currently has other offshore investments. These questions aren’t answered by the university’s statement. It is time the university takes seriously and openly addresses the requests of the activist groups on campus because, in the end, they were right about what the administration was hiding.
