Opinion: We believe Dr. Ford and Anita Hill, but they are not the same

I came to American University because it houses the most politically active students in the nation, but it was not until the Kavanaugh hearings that this title upgraded from a mere rumor, spread by campus-tour guides and proud convocation speeches, to a personal reality felt in my first-year orbit. The Brett Kavanaugh-Christine Blasey Ford hearings properly expunged any distrust in my new community’s capacity for political awareness, activism and attention.

Opinion: I’m wasting $900 with my meal plan. You could be too.

This semester brought institutional changes to the University’s meal plan program. Specifically, independent food vendors on campus, such as Megabytes and the Mudbox cafe among others, no longer accept Dining Dollars and can only accept EagleBucks. Students now have to spend the Dining Dollars they previously would have spent at Megabytes or the Mudbox at Aramark locations or the AU Pod Markets.
