May 15 this year marks the 70th anniversary of the beginning of the Nakba (the Arabic word for catastrophe).
In October, I wrote an article about my experience with Student Health Services (SHS) and their failure to provide me with adequate mental health care.
A good rule of thumb would be to not say anything you wouldn’t say to a woman in your family, but an uncomfortable amount of people say these horrible things, even to those women closest to them.
By now, most of us has seen or heard about the anonymous op-ed, “Not a threat” published in Student Life April 16. It is unfortunate that this is not the first time in the last 365 days that a member of our community has decided to publicize their traumatic experience because of the failure of numerous offices at Washington University.
Sexual assault is a hard topic: It is ugly, it is scary but avoiding talking about will not and has not made it go away.
The op-ed “Not a threat” came out in Student Life on April 16, and the story found inside has shaken this campus. It told the narrative of a neglectful University, a jaw-clenching survivor’s story and a narrative of a repeat perpetrator being seemingly protected by a university system that does. not. work.
It boggles my mind how an academic institution can so blatantly teach inaccurate and deceptive information about our nation’s past. The U.S.’s history is at times complicated, dark and horrifying.
I want to talk about mental health in college, particularly here at Washington University. The school has a poor infrastructure regarding handling mental health from the understaffed Student Health Services to the constant barrage of mind shredding exams and homework, as well as the lack of any semblance of a work-life balance.
Modules are dumb, pointless and don’t actually promote any semblance of a legitimate education.
I hesitate to call anyone anti- or un-American, as the experience is so varied and complex that there is no way to define the “right” way to be American.
