The United States finds itself in a culture war. Issues such as abortion, guns and gay marriage are at the forefront of this war. Unfortunately, activist judges have decided to enter the battle. And because of this, the judicial confirmation and nomination processes are also in a state of chaos.
This summer I had an experience not many college students will ever get. Unless they attend Hillsdale College, it’s safe to assume that the average college student rarely finds themselves in the midst of 400 politically active, conservative students. It’s also safe to assume that as a college student you certainly don’t find yourself waking up to listen to Newt Ginrinch, Walter Williams, David Brooks, Michelle Malkin, Star Parker or dining with John Stossel.
Have you ever wondered why the men’s and women’s locker rooms in McCarthy Gymnasium are switched at noon everyday? It’s because of the Title IX law created in 1972 that was meant to promote equality for men and women in school environments. Almost every part of the Title IX law works to achieve this goal for both men and women. However, one portion of the law is flawed: This portion of the law is that which deals with college athletics.

Ah, the first weeks of college. They are a barraged bewilderment of two thousand some new faces. One is introduced to what may become either a time of learning and prosperity or a struggle to survive.
In light of the recent confirmations of John Roberts and Samuel Alito to the U.S. Supreme Court, coupled with the potential for another Supreme Court nominee to go before the Senate in a short time, it is crucial for students to understand the long-lasting impact a Supreme Court Justice has on everyday life.
Football games, midterms, deer hunting, raking leaves, shortening days, corn mazes, and pumpkin pie—what do all these have in common? They share the same season. They are the things that make fall—fall. Traditions and patterns become part of life and create a balance within it, giving us goals, duties, obligations, and things to look forward to.
I was embarrassed. I sat there in my cap and gown, a 22-year-old college senior, among hundreds of other 22-year-old seniors, having just completed a four-year immersion in humane sentiment and liberal learning. We were now graduating from one of the most respected private universities in the state of Minnesota with a top-notch emphasis on tolerance and respect in our community of learning.
