As the new semester starts up again, so do student protests. But why do college students feel so empowered to protest anyway?
As the semester drags on, one thing is becoming clear: UT has very little role in the off-campus enforcement of COVID-19 protocols.
Panhellenic and Interfraternity Greek organizations are often recognized by the sense of untouchability that follows them; but apparently they touched someone, because now West Campus is a ‘hot spot’ for COVID-19.
The appeal of tenure is also its downfall, simultaneously encouraging freedom of speech in higher education and shielding faculty from the consequences of their actions.
As students cast their votes, the Walsh/Edwards ticket running for UT’s Executive Alliance wants voters to consider the sincerity and power of the candidates they intend to vote for.
