It’s Time to Put an End to Campus Isolation

 

A situation on campus which I would like to see changed is not so much the increasing ethnically and racially-based separation of student clubs and organizations, but the lack of communication and exchange between them.

 

There are valid arguments for the various racially "isolated" clubs in that they provide a support network and common identity for students who might otherwise feel culturally marooned on a campus as large as ours. (Specifically, I feel that the "Iranian Students Club," "Armenian Americans" and "Hillel House," to name a few, all provide emotional support to students away from home and their native culture.)

 

Perhaps one could even justify racial-based separation within an area of common interest on the grounds that common racial and cultural ties promote even better understanding within a common sub-group. I refer specifically to the fact that there is a "Student Business Association (almost exclusively white), a "Black Student Business Association" (exclusively black), and a ...

Isolation in the Writing Styles of Camus Essay - The writing style of Albert Camus in The Stranger shows the topic of isolation. Camus uses very short, straight to the point sentences, using very simple vocabulary to convey his message. In The Stranger, Meursault will give a complete thought in one sentence but the sentence after that will be completely different than what he was talking about in the previous sentence. The diction, syntax, and the organization of the novel all aid the readers to understand the topic of isolation and its purpose in the novel which is how Meursault, through his isolation from everyone and society, realizes that he has the ability to choose what he desires....   [tags: Albert Camus, The Stranger, Isolation, Analysis]

Essay on Parking Policies on Campus - As a non-traditional student of the University Mary Hardin Baylor, I can say parking policies could use some changes. I understand the need for parking policies for safety and security reasons, but some parking rules are just ridiculous. My family has four vehicles, only one of them has a UMHB parking sticker. This sticker was issued at registration; it is one of the many hidden fees that are added into tuition. I sometimes drive different vehicles to campus. When I drive different vehicles, I have to go to campus police to get a temporary parking permit....   [tags: Campus Issues] 801 words

The Problem of Campus Crime Essay - There are many myths and improper public perceptions about campus crime. There reality is that everyday common property crimes far outnumber violent crimes on campus (Bromley, 2007, pg. 280). This misperception is largely because of many factors. Campus policing has gone through several eras of policing. Unique to campus policing is that there are several influential and interested parties, such as the legislative, and judicial branches of government. As a result of this, campus crime has been a part of, and influenced to participate in newer forms of policing such as community oriented policing....   [tags: Security, Campus Police] 1620 words

Essay on Student Service Proposal: Campus Escort - ... Currently the operating hours of the Campus Escort are from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. (“Campus Escort,” Unr.edu.) However, it can only take students to or from buildings that are open on-campus, most of which are closed by midnight. Knowing this we should push back the hours of the escort service since it isn’t necessary to have it running an extra hour. The hours should be moved to 4 p.m. to 12 p.m. Although it may hardly be a change, students that use the escort service properly will have more opportunity to use it then some people who take advantage of the escort service....   [tags: safe, reputation, campus, security] 927 words

Campus in the Sky Essay - Campus in the Sky When I was 18 I moved out of my parent's house into what most would consider a small two bedroom apartment with a friend. To me it was a kingly palace because it was mine. A dishwasher that didn't work, a room so small that my bed barely fit, and bathroom I had trouble turning around in without running into a wall. Still, it was my own, and that was all that mattered. I worked a 9-5 job, scraping every penny to get by. It took two years for me to realize that there had to be something better....   [tags: Personal Narrative Education College Essays] 1472 words

Connection in Forster’s Howards End Essay -     The epigraph of E.M. Forster's novel Howards End is just two words: "only connect".  As economical as this gesture seems, critics and interpreters have made much of this succinct epigraph and the theme of connection in Howards End.  Stephen Land, for example, cites a: demand for connection, in the sense of moving freely between the two Forsterian worlds - the two "sides of the hedge", the everyday world of social norms and the arcadian or paradisal world of individual self-realization - has its roots in earlier stories..." [1]   He goes on to say that "each [character] must reconcile or connect for himself the range of conceptual polarities exposed by the story - prose and passion...   [tags: Howards End Essays]

Affirmative Action and Racial Tension Essays - Affirmative Action and Racial Tension   Affirmative action. What was its purpose in the first place, and do we really need it now. It began in an era when minorities were greatly under represented in universities and respectable professions. Unless one was racist, most agreed with the need of affirmative action in college admissions and in the workplace. Society needed an active law that enforced equality during a period when civil rights bills were only effective in ink. With so much of America¹s work force spawned from integrated schools now, some may question whether racism really is the problem anymore, and many college students might answer yes....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics]
