TCU shouldn’t bar student drinking
Of-age students should be able to follow law

In Europe the legal drinking age is 18. In the United States it’s 21. Yet, the limits that separate legal from illegal and responsible from irresponsible will no longer matter at TCU.

Next fall, students older than age of 21 may have their right to drink suppressed on school-sponsored trips. Seems that while the university advertises its ability to mold us into ethical leaders, it doesn’t trust us enough to prove that outside the TCU bubble.

John Butler challenges us to think, teaches us to respect others’ beliefs

I was asked two weeks ago to prepare something to say about John Butler. For the past two weeks I have struggled with what to say. Finally I came to the realization this morning, that my first impression was correct.
Liberals lead the better way

When you turn on the TV, turn on the radio or simply walk around campus, someone is using the dreaded “L” word … Liberal. This is really quite amusing because if it weren’t for liberals, we wouldn’t live in the society everyone claims to love today.
