Nick Horwat When I was a freshman I knew I wanted to be involved in journalism; that’s why I chose it as my major. But after two years I hadn’t gotten involved in anything, and was unsure if I wanted to continue on that path. On the verge of transferring schools and changing majors, I can thank a clos...

Last year, I used an online service to scan my Spotify listening habits to determine the ratio of how many women I listen to versus how many men I listen to. The answer was depressing.

Insist on anonymity.  Demand it. Privacy shouldn’t be a novel idea. Our university should lead the charge for academic integrity by protecting the privacy of students.
