UNIVERSITY APOLOGIZES TO SNOWFLAKES FOR ASKING IF THEY’RE ‘DREAMING OF A WHITE CAMPUS’ SNOW DAY

Posted on

 

( MRCTV) Last week, University College London was forced to issue an apology after attempting to paraphrase Bing Crosby’s hit Christmas song, “White Christmas.” UCL’s alleged mistake was asking if students were dreaming of a “white campus,” which many interpreted as a call for a white-only campus.

In UCL’s original tweet, they simply asked if students were “[d]reaming of a white campus” before using specific hashtags to signify the post was about snow, such as #snowday and #londonsnow:

 

Soon after the tweet, UCL issued an apology, claiming their word choice was poor. The school also vowed to pick their words “more carefully in the future”:

YAF college courses 2017

 

By Caleb Parke | Fox News                                          

Colleges nationwide are teaching students about tacos, hooking up and country music’s “homophobic and racist” message — but those are just a few examples, as classes such as “Queer Religion” and “Racial Capitalism” become the new norm.

The classes are listed and explained in Young America’s Foundation’s annual report of bizarre courses with a “leftist slant” that are offered at top-tier colleges and universities throughout the country.

Many courses fall under “intersectionality” — the hottest trend in identity politics on college campuses, offering students classes combining forms of discrimination (i.e. racism, sexism and classism) in relation to marginalized individuals or groups.

Ivy Leagues lead the list.

Brown University’s American Studies Department offers a course that uses specific objects “including sugar, milk, vibrators, and Spanx” as case studies “to critically consider how material culture informs and signals identity.”

“Trying Socrates in the Age of Trump,” a course offered by Harvard University’s Philosophy Department allows students to “determine why the Athenians killed Socrates” and ask “what should be done with people who spread dangerous ideas?”

Harvard also offers “Tacos, Tamales, and Tequila: Eating and Drinking in Ancient Mexico,” “Body Burdens: Toxic Tales and Politics of Environmental Racism” and “Leaning In, Hooking Up.”

Meanwhile, the University of Pennsylvania’s Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies Department offers a course called “More Human Than Human” that explores how ecofeminists and post-humanists are dismantling constructs of “personhood” and giving equal rights to animals — or “speciesism.”

Princeton University’s American Studies Department asks “Is science gendered, racialized, ableist or classist?” in a course titled “Science After Feminism.” They also offer “Black to the Future: Science, Fiction, and Society,” “FAT: The F-Word and the Public Body” and “Media Spectacles, Scandalous Citizens and Democratic Possibilities.” That course examines “The Women’s March, Trigger Warnings, Black Lives Matter, and Travel Bans.”

Indiana University’s Gender Studies program offers “We’re All A Little Crazy: Gender, Madness, & Popular Culture,” promising discussions on “resting b***h face” and “hails of ‘Yaaas, Queen!’”

The University of Michigan’s American Culture Department offers “Rednecks, Queers, and Country Music,” which looks into how “homophobic and racist” music “serves as a medium for multicultural social and erotic exchange among queer country fans.”

Washington & Lee University has a course on “Campus Sex in the Digital Age” and Queering Colonialism,” while the University of Illinois offers “Hip Hop Feminism” and “Queer Lives, Queer Politics.” Swarthmore College’s Religious Studies Department lets students take “Queering God: Feminist and Queer Theology” and “Queering the Bible,” and Carleton College has “Queer Religion” while Middlebury offers “Queering Food.”

Presidents at America’s private universities saw their pay increase by 9 percent in 2015, according to a new report , with several of them topping $2 million in total earnings.

 

The average chief received total compensation of nearly $570,000, including salary, bonuses and benefits, according to a survey of 500 schools released Sunday by The Chronicle of Higher Education. Among the highest earners were 10 who made more than $2 million, up from eight who crossed that mark the year before, while another 48 made at least $1 million

 

Topping the list was Wake Forest University’s Nathan Hatch, whose total pay of $4 million included a payment of nearly $3 million as a perk for leading the North Carolina school for 10 years.

Hatch’s achievements in fundraising and other areas have been worth the investment, said Donna Boswell, head of the university’s governing board.

“President Hatch’s compensation over the course of his tenure reflects his exceptional leadership,” Boswell said in a statement, adding that Hatch has helped raise $795 million as part of an ongoing campaign.

Hatch was followed by Emory University’s James Wagner, who received $3.5 million, and the University of Southern California’s C.L. Max Nikias, with $3.2 million.

  • ‘The cleaners are sick of coming across poo and used toilet paper in places it just shouldn’t be.
  • Memo: ‘all bodily fluids’ needed to be ‘disposed down the toilet’
  • ‘The building houses some of the most intelligent brains int he world – yet they don’t appear to know how to use the toilet.

 

The Daily Mail reported:

Students at one of Scotland’s top universities have been told off for pooing in showers and bins.

Bosses at Strathclyde University were forced to send a memo to the 400 students and 250 staff asking them to stop with their ‘inappropriate’ toilet habits.

The memo, posted on Thursday, was sent by the operations management team of the University’s Technology and Innovation Centre.

It read: ‘Given the incidence of people pooing in bins, showers and the likes, can I please remind all TIC occupants that the toilets have been provided for that specific purpose.

‘All bodily fluids, solids and toilet paper must be disposed of down the toilet.

‘While I appreciate that the TIC population is multi-cultural and different countries have different practices, here in the UK the accepted practice is to use only the WC.’

DISGUSTING! ALASKA PROF. THOMAS CHUNG SHOWS STUDENTS A BEHEADED TRUMP DURING ART EXHIBIT

Posted on

The gutless wonders of the left! Imagine if this was done to Barack Obama, this nutty professor Thomas Chung would be gone by now, groveling and weeping at every stinky liberal feet he could find asking for forgiveness.

Campus Reform:

The University of Alaska Anchorage is displaying a professor’s painting that depicts Captain America holding the severed head of President Donald J. Trump as part of a faculty art exhibition.

Professor Thomas Chung, who made the painting, said he was initially hesitant to submit the painting for a faculty art show out of concern that it would make some students feel uncomfortable, but ultimately decided to display it in hopes of starting a conversation about his opposition to Trump.
