With the occurrence of yet another mass shooting in Las Vegas, the gun control debate in America has arisen once more. Harry Enten of FiveThirtyEight stipulated that Americans have never been more divided on gun control. My interpretation of this statistic is that this is the result of political strife rather than actual public opinion.The National Rifle Association’s (NRA) power and influence in Washington is undisputed by anyone familiar with Washington, and the effect has been a constant so-called “divide” over gun control legislation that may not even be as intense as the NRA wants everyone to know.
An initiative led by Kameron Winters, LGBTQIA Director in the Center for Diversity and Inclusion (CDI), has led to the transformation of Mary Graydon Center’s second floor bathrooms to “all-gender,” or gender neutral. These bathrooms join the multiple gender neutral bathrooms scattered across campus, such as the first floor of Anderson/Centennial. The Eagle is supportive of these continued efforts toward building a more inclusive, accessible campus that reflects the diversity of the student body.
Imagine yourself joining a Greek organization. Imagine finding your brothers, your sisters or your closest of friends.

It’s 1997. Theater professor Caleen Jennings calls student Tru Tranh into her office.

At halftime Friday night in Bender Arena, the AU volleyball team lacked fluidity and consistency in their offensive approach, trailing Navy by two sets to none in a game with major implications in the Patriot League. Navy had beaten the Eagles in their previous meeting on Sept. 26 and a loss would make it unlikely that the team would once again be regular season conference champions.

A poll conducted by the Washington Post found that protest has become incredibly common today, with a third of D.C. residents participating in protests against Trump. Yet, this poll also found a significant divide in who participates in those protests, with high income and white residents by far the most likely to protest Trump, despite being the least threatened by Trump. The answer to this seeming contradiction lies in the heart of the problems of the #resistance, and why the path to opposing Trump must run in a different direction.
