Barrett, The Honors College is planning to take seniors on a trip to Hawaii in March. This trip is to celebrate the students' college experience coming to an end. However, this voyage will be at the expense of the health and wellbeing of the Hawaiian people and environment of Hawaii as well as the trip failing to address the colonial history in the island.
ASU's parental leave policy allows employees a paid 12-week leave to allow for recovery from childbirth, and to care for the newborn, or newly adopted child. This policy can be used for new mothers, fathers and adoptive parents.
ASU classes have been back in session for less than a month now, and things have been a train wreck ever since. On Jan. 17, we reported the highest number of COVID-19 cases ever recorded on campus, at a staggering 2,345 ASU community members testing positive for COVID-19.
Nearly a year ago, Mirabella at ASU opened near the Tempe campus as a retirement community meant to encourage lifelong learning by allowing the elderly residents to take classes at ASU. From the beginning, many saw the placement of Mirabella on University Drive, not far from Mill Avenue, as an odd choice given Tempe's reputation as a rowdy college town, known for its bars, clubs and live music performances.
As Maricopa County's ballot audit continues, conspiracy theories of an unfair election are being fueled. Arizona is not only lowering voter trust, and potentially affecting outcomes for future elections by doing this, but they are also encouraging other states to follow in their footsteps, to lead these biased audits taking place due to unfounded worries.
In late April, an anti-abortion bill was signed into Arizona law by Gov. Doug Ducey. This bill, Senate Bill 1457, makes it illegal for doctors to perform abortions on women due to genetic abnormalities.
In 2015, ASU built a large number of gender-neutral bathrooms at many different locations across all four campuses. This progressive move was a step in the right direction for LGBTQ+ students to feel safe in ASU communities.
On March 25, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey lifted all remaining COVID-19 restrictions. This transition came way too early, as Arizona does not yet have herd immunity due to the fact that people are still getting vaccinated.
ASU's recent announcement that the University plans to return to in-person instruction for the Fall 2021 semester was met with mixed reactions by students. Many are excited to be going back to in-person instruction, others are doubtful that ASU will successfully pull this off, and some still do not feel safe going to campus.
Many students who are registered with Student Accessibility and Inclusive Learning Services, or SAILS, have an accommodation to get early registration for classes each semester. This gives students with disabilities an opportunity to have more time to choose professors and class times that best guarantee student success.
As ASU reopened campus in Fall 2020 and Spring 2021, the community saw a rise in COVID-19 cases at the beginning of both semesters. Thousands of students were told to quarantine, and while some remained asymptomatic, others became sick and unable to do work. Despite the waves of infection, ASU currently has no uniform protocol for lessening the academic load of students who become sick without placing the responsibility of seeking help on students.

La universidad está destinado a ser uno de los momentos más importantes de nuestras vidas. Es cuando aprendemos lo que significa ser un adulto y establecemos conexiones personales y profesionales que nos durarán toda la vida.
This pandemic has been frustrating for many college students, financially speaking. Numerous students are paying the same amount of money for an inadequate education, and several of us weren’t included in the previous stimulus checks. The United States government, as sloppily as they handled this pandemic, compensated for this with the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act.
Not all programs at ASU are created equal. Every student who comes to ASU has a similar goal in mind: a quality education and college experience. While college is what you make it, ASU seems to be favoring some of its schools over others. Some schools house their students in high-rise-style dorms and beautifully built classrooms, yet others don’t get the same treatment.
Affirmative action is a process many universities utilize to make sure their programs meet a certain minimum for marginalized groups. While this system may seem helpful at diversifying campuses on the surface, it is simply putting a Band-Aid on systematic issues.
A majority of prospective college students today have had to take a standardized test, such as the SAT or ACT in order to get into college. It is seen as a rite of passage for a student in their junior year of high school to take one of these exams as a way to measure their intelligence and determine their future.
As we begin another semester online, students across the country are mourning the loss of their college days. College is meant to be one of the most important times of our lives. It's when we learn what it means to be an adult and make personal and professional connections that will last us a lifetime.
Several of ASU’s Greek organizations have been hot topics in the news lately, sometimes for the wrong reasons. Between hazing and breaking COVID-19 guidelines, the Greek Leadership Village has been a hotbed of controversy.
If you’ve ever had a job on campus, you are likely aware of the many trainings that employees are required to take. One of these trainings is called "Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion." This training does an excellent job of covering certain minority groups that are discriminated against on the basis of sex, gender identity, race, and sexual orientation. The area I hope to see it expand on, however, is disability.
As Joe Biden took office Jan. 20 and became the 46th president of the U.S., he signed a flurry of new executive orders and discussed plans to assuage some of the issues that have been plaguing our country for years, including student debt.
