UA discriminates against those who are ╬different'

The UA is not a diverse campus.

Many individuals would disagree with the above. One reason is that we have people from more than 100 different countries and all 50 states here, which means we have a person of every race, color, ethnicity, religion, etc., here. Big deal.

All I see is a painted image of the university's idea of diversity on campus. Diversity is not about trying to fill a quota of individuals who are different in some way.

photo Protesting budgets with a side of fries

Things on our campus have changed over the past couple of years. We've built a new bookstore, a new union (almost) and a giant underground classroom/learning center. We are slowly replacing the things of old on our campus with newer buildings and technology. Gone is the old red brick, replaced by smooth, white plaster. Gone is the old McDonald's in the student union, replaced with, well, a new McDonald's. [Read article]
