Pass: Diversity class will foster acceptance

On Sunday, the Student Association Senate approved a resolution which will require students starting their first semester at NIU in fall 2017 and after to take at least one credit in a human diversity course prior to graduation.

As college students we are the next generation of adults. By requiring us to be educated in diversity, NIU is fostering a more accepting campus.

Fail: MTV star deserved better fan support

MTV Ridiculousness’ star Chanel West Coast performed at midnight Sept. 29 at Fatty’s Pub & Grille, 1312 W. Lincoln Highway. However, many of those in attendance reportedly did not know her music, but instead recognized her as the girl from “Ridiculousness” and “Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory”.

As a young artist I would hope she would receive support based on her music.Chanel deserves recognition for the musical accomplishments she has worked for since she was 17 years old, not because she hangs out with Rob Dyrdek.
