I find it extremely ironic that a University is in the media for everything BUT its actual collegiate program.
People go to school to gain knowledge .. to gain a sense of culture and to network with tons of people and at least learn how to work with all types of folks. Instead, it seems that the only culture we are truly learning about is that of institutional racism and ignorance. There has been an onset of downright racist and prejudice activity on the UConn Storrs Campus in the last year or so and it looks like a lot more students are vocal about their disgust with the student population and how administration is handling it all. While I am sure plenty of incidents have occurred, the most recent have been especially discussed and highlighted in the media. I am extremely impressed, since the women just claimed the National Championship yet again, and they are able to keep the focus on the problem.
I dont know about you but I am SICK of hearing about this behavior. School is suppose to be about learning about yourself and accepting change, understanding differences.. yet it looks like a lot more people are staying stagnant and true to their ignorance. I really respect all of the students, staff and supporters who are standing up against all of this vicious activity.
Check out these articles on two of the incidents on the campus.. they both revolve around the rock (which I have seen). Any organization can paint over the previous rock design once it is dried.
