Drug Policy Initiatives: Amethyst vs. Emerald

By: Tim Wallace   Binge drinking has been viewed by college campus leaders as one of the biggest health and safety risks for college students of our generation, according to a recent Inside Higher Ed article. As a result, administrators are focusing on ways in which alcohol policies could be reformed not just on their campuses, but around the country.  One such reform is the Amethyst Initiative, made up of chancellors and presidents from colleges and universities around the country. This movement calls for lowering the drinking age to 18, in hopes that certain stigmas and social issues surrounding binge…

“The Sicily Class”

Blog entry and photos by: Katherine Neubert Journalism 391R: Travel Writing and Photojournalism (aka “the Sicily class”) is by far, hands down, no doubt about it the best class I’ve ever taken at UMass. For starters, it gets you out of the class room and into real life… Sicily, to be exact. You can only take this class during the spring semesters because it takes you to Sicily over Spring Break. Yes, there is actual class before and after you travel to Sicily. The class meets every Tuesday and Thursday from 6p.m. to 8p.m., and there is an application and…

Haymarket Cafe: A little more than your average “coffee shop”

By: Katherine Neubert I was standing on Main Street in Northampton, around the corner from Smith College, where my father taught film once upon a time, my cousin became an alumnus in 2003 and where, last weekend, I saw “Thin & Girl Culture,” a photography exhibit by Lauren Greenfield at the Smith College Museum of Art. I saw this with my half sister who currently lives and works here with her husband and two-year-old baby girl. Though the lives of my family and I have brought us to the Pioneer Valley for different reasons, one thing remains the same –…

UMass offers yoga!

By: Alyssa Creamer Many full-time college students with hectic lives, between planning enough time to balance 10 hours of a crappy part-time job, six classes of varying degrees of difficulty, and making time to socialize, barely have enough time to truly relax. When you believe you’ve spent time “relaxing” because you’ve successfully managed to sit on your butt and watch an episode of “House,” the only direction you’re moving in is away from a physically and mentally healthier you. What might convince you to change your ways? Meeting UMass yoga instructor Eric Burri might spark some interest in your health….

UMass speaks out on possible border tolls

By: Alyssa Creamer Collegian Staff According to The Boston Globe, Governor Deval Patrick has proposed a plan to the federal government to place toll booths at the Massachusetts state borders. Although no official documents requesting this plan have yet been received by the Federal Highway Administration in Washington, Patrick told the Globe saying “I would love to see…border tolls at the interstate entrances.” This would affect travelers driving to and from Connecticut, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont.   On Nov. 13, 2008, Patrick elaborated on his plans to dismantle the Mass. Turnpike in the Boston Globe. “The Turnpike Authority…

January 20, 2009: One of the best days of my life

I haven’t even left cloud nine yet. That’s where I’ve been since last Tuesday, when I arrived in DC after a 90-minute metro ride (which should have been only about a 10 minute ride). I was blessed enough to not have gone back to school yet, and my best girlfriend Maggie and I were fortunate to have the day off from work. We spent the entire wonderful/overwhelming/spectacular/tear-jerking/historic day standing in a rather snug (and wind-free) crowd of millions of people in 27-degree weather. Our toes got almost completely frostbitten under three layers of socks, two pairs of pants, two long sleeve shirts, my dad’s old-school down vest,…

Watching history in the making

I woke up at ten thirty and leisurely stumbled downstairs, where my mom casually reminded me that in little more than an hour, the first African American President of the United States would be sworn into office. It was a fact I had quietly forgotten. My family has always been politically involved, but we’ve never been a group that pays much attention to the ceremonies of office. As I sat down with my bowl of cereal to watch old presidents march among mixed applause and greetings, I noticed quickly that we may be unique in this regard. Every channel our…

Brian Williams & Tom Brokaw kept me watching

By Matt Rocheleau, Collegian Staff When I sat down Tuesday evening to try and write about what I did on Inauguration Day, I couldn’t – which is why I waited until now. It wasn’t that I had writer’s block or that I did not have anything to say; rather, I was just tired of the whole thing. Reporting for The Collegian, I had spent most of the morning and early afternoon covering several local gatherings where people, mainly Obama supporters, joined to watch the telecast of the inauguration festivities in Washington D.C. My last stop of the day, but most…

A wake-up call I’ll never forget

Normally I would wake for nothing before noon during winter break, but today was different. After scrounging through my pants, which still lay next to my bed, I managed to pull out my cell phone. My voice still weak from the depths of sleep, I greeted my stepfather. “Are you watching Obama?” he asked. “Not yet.” “Well get going, he’s being sworn in right now.” I said goodbye, lay there for a moment and decided: Yes, this was definitely worth getting up for. My house is very old, and consequently, very cold throughout the winter. As I huddled under a blanket for warmth while watching…

A tearful rejoicing

Watching Obama’s inauguration this morning gave me goosebumps. Not because I was standing in the bitter cold Washington Mall, but because for the second time in my life I was proud to call myself an American. The first time was election night.
