OPINION

Give credit/no credit where it is due

The Office of the Provost believes we need to return to some form of normalcy, but this isn’t the way to do so. Raising the standard by which we are graded clashes with our current situation, which continues to remain both uncertain and dominantly online. 


OPINION

Don’t mess up when you dress up

None of this information is meant to scare you into being too afraid to experience or celebrate other cultures. But buying a $50 Native American polyester costume off spirithalloween.com is not the way to accomplish that.


OPINION

Do this justice some justice

Ruth was a warrior for change. Let a piece of her live on in you by registering to vote, actually voting, staying informed, staying passionate and staying on the side of what you believe is right. 


OPINION

The Zoom-bomb incident: let’s talk about it.

A lot of people were involved in what happened, whether it be those at the event, those dealing with the aftermath, those who instigated what happened or those who are shocked and appalled by the blatantly offensive and hateful actions taken by the hacker. We’d like to address each of you directly.


OPINION

A Letter to the Class of 2024

Most of us on the editorial board are upperclassmen. But, knowing new students are facing a minimum of a five-week wait for coming to Oxford, we thought we’d offer some advice. 


OPINION

Thoughts from Quarantine: Broken Routines

This week, we’re introducing a new series called, “Thoughts from Quarantine.” Every week, three of our editors will answer a variation of this simple question: “How are you feeling?” This week’s prompt is, “How are you feeling about the differences between your previously normal routine and new reality?”


OPINION

We’re ready to have the talk, Miami. Are you?

We hope that Miami will make the class mandatory for sophomores, as we believe the university has a responsibility to provide students a comprehensive education that creates a culture of communication around sex and prioritizes students’ physical and emotional health.
