The News-Letter’s recent articles about the International Studies Program (“Reviews Identity Flaws in International Studies Program,” “Editorial: International Studies Must Better Support Its Students,” 1 Dec.) raise several valid points about the current state of one of campus’ most popular majors.
"So, Zelpha, what are your plans after graduation?” We all know that dreaded question.
I open my eyes after listening to God.
Following the presidential election, Hopkins students seem to have forgotten the apathy that typically characterizes them. Students have participated in protests against hate, fossil fuels, the review of the Humanities Center and so much more. All of this is great, but we can’t let it fizzle out.
Though International Studies (IS) is one of the most popular majors at Hopkins with 332 enrolled students, it has frequently come under scrutiny. In response, the IS program released an internal review this month in which both faculty and select students assessed the current state of affairs and outlined ways in which the program can improve. The internal review was held just before the Homewood Academic Council, composed of non-IS Hopkins faculty and faculty from other universities, conducted an external review.
The Johns Hopkins Hospital will open the Center for Transgender Health next year under the direction of Paula Neira, a former naval officer and transgender woman. The Center hopes to provide transgender patients with specialized healthcare over the course of their lives.
After the election, a lot of us were rattled. My echo chamber of a Facebook feed reflected my feelings of hopelessness, fear and anger. Growing up in California and attending a so-called “liberal” university, most of my friends align themselves on the left side of the aisle, but there are a few who don’t share the same feelings as me about our new President-elect.
In March, I wrote an article about how I was disappointed in how liberals were treating Trump as a joke rather than a serious threat. And yet, up until the night of the election, I also did not believe that Trump would win. I had ideas in my head of what a Clinton presidency would look like, how to protest her various hawkish policies, ready to get angry at people lauding her as a feminist idol. And yet, here we are, egg dripping down my face.
If you are a frequent commuter on the JHMI shuttle between Homewood and the Medical Campus, you may have noticed in recent weeks that several of the buses running the route have a rather unique livery.
Last week’s election shook our campus, and rightfully so. Many of us have questions about the future. Many of us are scared. Many of us are hurt. We cannot deny that much has happened in the succeeding week, and it has been difficult to make sense of all of it.
Hopkins students have staged multiple protests following the election of Donald Trump. They have questioned the University’s investments in fossil fuels, the mistreatment of Palestinians and the president-elect himself.
Following last week’s election, calls for California to secede from the Union have been gaining attention, prompting many to support the movement known as #Calexit.
Like many of my peers last Tuesday night, I sat on my couch, eyes glued on the television, ready to experience the election of the first female president. How could Hillary Clinton not win?
How could Donald Trump possibly win the election? How could so many people be so sexist, so racist, so ready to take away the rights of oppressed groups across the country?
University President Ronald J. Daniels released a new version the the Roadmap on Diversity and Inclusion to the Hopkins community on Friday, Nov. 4. Updating an earlier draft created last February, the revised document responds to student and faculty feedback and to the demands presented by the Black Student Union (BSU) last November.
Construction of the 1,170-mile Dakota Access Pipeline was officially approved by the U.S. federal government in Aug. 2016. Talks about the $3.7 billion project actually began back in 2014, but it remained outside of mainstream media coverage until recent weeks. It escalated particularly following the arrest of actress Shailene Woodley during an Oct. 10 protest at the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Reservation in North Dakota.
Last week on Nov. 4, JHU Snaps on Facebook returned from its hiatus with post #1042, a screenshot of a security officer apparently sleeping on the job and the caption “Keeping the lib real safe.”
I originally intended for this op-ed to have a much more positive perspective on the outcome of the election and what we could all do going forward. Given the results of the election, I am no longer nearly as optimistic as I was before about the state of our nation. However, I realize that this does not change the importance of the message of my original op-ed. If anything, for those of us that were devastated by Tuesday night, I believe this message is more important than ever before.
Bernie Sanders is coming to Hopkins on Nov. 17 as part of both MSE’s and FAS’s speaker series. Sanders is the most prominent speaker the symposiums have brought to campus in recent years, and in anticipation of a large crowd and an intense security situation, the University required the groups to dole out free tickets to the event.
The News-Letter officially endorses Hillary Clinton for President of the United States. We believe Clinton’s vast experience and sane policies make her a qualified candidate for President. Our endorsement stems from the belief that Clinton’s strengths make her not merely a better option than Donald Trump, but a strong candidate for the office in her own right.
