Throughout high school and during my time here at Baylor, I have been described as a couple of things. One word seems to be repetitive: organized.
As a senior graduating in December, I am already on the job hunt. As most people know, getting a job in the market these days is near to impossible for recent graduates.
The men’s basketball team, going into the NCAA Tournament as three-seed, was highly favored to win the second round. The upset was upsetting and unexpected to coaches, players and fans. That being said, the fan response on social media in regard to Baylor head coach Scott Drew was uncalled for and tacky. Almost instantly, Baylor fans hit Twitter with venom aimed at Drew.
Student government has been quite “popular” recently with the case of McCahill, Hardy v. Kinghorn. I’ll be the first to admit there were mistakes in the interpretation of the governing documents from the Senate Executive Council, but how can the court in good conscience issue such a verdict when their entire operation is in conflict?
I am a bit surprised by the outrage on social media after the Student Court’s decision in McCahill, Hardy v. Kinghorn. In my opinion, the court’s 22-page analysis showed a high level of judicial knowledge and careful weighing of the evidence. The court ruled on specific violations of the Constitution and Senate bylaws
Yesterday the Jerry and Susie Wilson Chair in Religious Freedom, former U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf, joined the esteemed list of On Topic series participants. Notably referred to as the “conscience of Congress,” Wolf and President and Chancellor Ken Starr undoubtedly planted a seed of reflection in all those in attendance, including me.
Outside of select pockets in Arkansas and C-SPAN, Tom Cotton probably wasn’t really a “household” name until a few weeks ago. Cotton, a Republican U.S. senator from Arkansas, sent a letter to the Iranian government condemning President Barack Obama’s negotiation with Iran.
One of the most pressing tasks on my todo list is to finish my basic courses at a local community college this summer. I’m under pressure because the university stops accepting transfer credits during a student’s final 30 hours at Baylor.
With the Loretta Lynch controversy, however, Madison’s quote today would sound something more like “Because men are not angels, let’s abolish all forms of government.”
The Lariat has impressed me since I started law school here in the fall. The articles are generally thoughtful, pertinent and fair. However, I find the recent article about Baylor declining to investigate the local SAE chapter outright offensive.
