    • Making the Invisible Visible takes on disability stigma (Login Required)

      “People need to start talking about disabilities,” she said. “The only way to break down stigma and normalize disability is to ensure it is a part of every conversation on diversity, to listen to the stories of those of us with disabilities and to speak out when people with disabilities face stigma or discrimination.”

      “I think we heard some exciting ideas from the candidates about kind of what the landscape for work is going to be like looking ahead. But the beautiful thing is that we’re in a really good place, so this isn’t somebody who’s going to need to come in and rescue by any means. This is somebody who’s going to build off of what we do and take us to the next level.”

    • OIIL adjusts to its new space (Login Required)

      The Office of Intercultural & International Life (OIIL) promotes diversity and inclusion on campus. Students of color and international students are the main foci for the office’s work, but they are open to other students as well. Recently, the OIIL office relocated to Upper Sayles. Prior to that, the office was situated in Laird’s basement for two years. Before Laird, the office was located in the basement of Scoville. OIIL’s shift from Laird to Sayles was part of Facilities’ strategic plan for space utilization on campus. The plan prioritized OIIL becoming more accessible and having an “open space.”

    • Completed Chapel organ renovation brings new music to campus (Login Required)

      The organ pipes are now restored to working condition and are located at the front of the Chapel and above the balcony. The antiphonal division above the balcony is a new feature that was not functional in the past. The carillon, also known as bells or chimes, was also replaced with new technology that can be computer programmed. These changes and upkeep to the organ were a long time coming; the last renovation of the Chapel organ happened in the 1950s. The restoration was finished at the start of fall term 2018 and was still being tuned on the day of this year’s opening Convocation.

    • Lowering the drinking age leads to safer alcohol use (Login Required)

      As an 18-year-old, I take pride in being regarded as a full-fledged member of society who is therefore allowed certain rights such as buying fireworks and spray paint, voting, getting a tattoo, suing someone (or getting sued), adopting a child, and joining the military. While I may not choose to exercise all of these rights that come with adulthood, it is comforting to know that, should I so desire, I can change my name or buy nitrous oxide without anyone’s permission. The one right I am still not granted, however, is to drink alcohol.
