Women's history month: Celia May Southworth, part of the first editorial board, didn't want to sacrifice her femininity for acceptance in the workplace. How could she do that in 1891? She wrote: “Choose friends who are brave enough and noble enough to rise above the social rottenness of the day.”
Editorial: While The Collegian respects the student government’s decision to start the conversation on bias-motivated incidents, it is long overdue. Why did it take so long?
Editorial: When hundreds of high school students walked out of their classroom Tuesday afternoon in response to a shooting in Parkland, Florida, we were in awe. We would like to offer our complete support of their demonstration. We wish we were that brave in high school.
Editorial: The Collegian condemns Nazis, white nationalists or anyone else who spreads hateful and dangerous ideology. We’re grateful that CSU and many conservative and liberal student leaders did the same. But, we do not believe “condemning” extremists is enough. Implicit and subtle racist rhetoric also needs to be explicitly and directly rejected.
Editorial: “So, they impeached that guy? Why?” Here, we offer one answer: our own interpretation as outsiders (without a stake in an outcome) who were offered an inside look.
Last Wednesday, for the first time after two years of covering CSU’s student government, I spoke on the floor during a meeting. I said something along the lines of: “We’re not going to leave; the press will stay here.” The Associated Students of Colorado State University’s senate is currently in the process of attempting to impeach the student body president. But, they don’t seem to want to tell anyone why they’re trying to impeach him. On Wednesday, they tried to call an “executive session,” in order to discuss the alleged violations without the public – including journalists – present.
