Kappa Alpha Psi is one of the historically Black fraternities FIU has to offer here on campus. Founded when the school was first born into its existence, this organization of brotherhood upholds many of the principles and values their Black ancestors set forth many years ago. One such example would be that of pride and the celebration of their African heritage, not just from the American stand point but acknowledgment of the African ancestry of the world. When the African slaves of various countries (throughout Latin America and the Caribbean especially) were eventually freed from the harshness of servitude they began to rejoice at their newfound independence. The jubilation, initially invol ...

Do you know how to remain safe on campus? There has been a rise in campus crime over the years due the increased dorm population, according to Maj. Susan Norred, assistant director of safety and security for the University Police Department. Norred, a police officer for approximately 17 years, has primary concern for students that walk or jog alone at night. She has served in her current position for two years.

Westview High School is a closed campus school, which limits the freedom and movement of students through out the day. While millions of other students around the country enjoy a open campus. We are trapped in the same routine day after day. We see the same people everyday, eat the same caritiria food, and walk the same crowded halls. First off Westview, like many other schools, is full of kids who get too stressed out by the long days, and sometimes just feel the need to take a break from their hectic day. They want to escape away from the same environment they have been coped up in since the beginning of the year. Open campus can give them the opportunity to leave for their hour lunch peri ...

Love In Campus - 519 words
I haven't decided which topic to dewell on until I heard of a story, the same story that happened again between my classmates this term. Another pair of boyfriend and girlfriend had said goodbye to each other, leaving only the good memories of the sweet past and a miserable future in front. Someone once told me " there are no rights or wrongs in love" after he was turned down by a girl. However, he ended up his comment with " I don't believe there is true love in campus now", which surprised me most. Another boy, who is one of my best friends, after bidding farwell to his girlfriend, said he still loved the girl so much although it was her who wanted to leave him, which also made me deeply i ...

How Campus Notices Achieve Their Communicative Purpose - 1,423 words
Every University in the USA just like any other educatory place in the world is a place where people communicate with each other sharing knowledge in the form of opinions, thoughts, and ideas. On the other hand these sources of information can be distributed among the inhabitants of such system via visual, audio or tactile channels. It is a well known fact that in order for a message of any kind to leave a trace in somebodys mind, it has to be attractive, scary, or persuasive. In other words the use of logos , pathos and ethos is obligatory. The messages depending on their type can be very context specific (messages that warn or prohibit) or context loose (informative, instructive). The mess ...

Equality To All - 2,176 words
The question has been raised: who is in control of curriculum in our school? Not just the choosing of the precise books, but who is in charge of the contents of the books that curriculum directors can choose from? Once the answers to these questions are found, what should be done if they point to one group? So many problems in the United States have arisen when the people discover that one group is violating the peoples rights in some way by not allowing others power, that it would be logical to conclude that it would be perceived by many to be unfair if it is found that one interest group chooses what all American children learn, especially if that interest group is furthering their own int ...

Racism - 1,378 words
If there is one thing that the OJ Simpson trial will be remembered for, it is the racial polarization felt by all who have an opinion of the trial. Even though the trial itself was a farce, it does say something about where we are today as an American culture. It seems as though the racial divide is growing ever wider in our culture. Terms such as African-American or Irish-American are only helping to expand separation based on ethnic background. Just the fact that people insist on being identified with a country where the last known ancestor left one hundred fifty years ago speaks volumes of America's 'melting pot'. It is only logical that this behavior has manifested itself on todays colle ...

... s. The new methods, combined with the physical organization of the school, represented the direct opposite of Pestalozzi's belief that the child's innate powers should be allowed to develop naturally. Rather, the child must be lopped off or stretched to fit the procrustean curriculum. Subjects were graded according to difficulty, assigned to certain years, and taught by a rigid daily timetable. The amount of information that the child had absorbed through drill and memorization was determined by how much could be extracted from him by examinations. Reward or punishment came in the form of grades. At the end of the 19th century the methods of presenting information had thus been streamlin ...

Board of Education of Topeka, Kansas. It decided unanimously in 1954 that segregation was unconstitutional, overthrowing the 1896 Plessy v. Ferguson ruling that had set the "separate but equal" the young minister, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The leaders organized the Montgomery Bus Boycott, which would deprive the bus company of 65% of its income, and cost Dr. King a $500 fine or 386 days in jail.

The baby boom after World War II more than doubled the population of U.S. colleges in 1960-1964. This was also the first generation to grow up with the knowledge that an atomic bomb could destroy the world. The students felt power of their numbers, and they felt also that they should have more say in the issues that affected their lives (Benson 50) A prime and initial example of these feelings are the events taking place at Berkely University in 1964.

Nike - 1,663 words
Nike, Inc. (503-671-6453, www.nike.com) is the worlds #1 athletic shoe and apparel seller. Nike currently employs 20,700 employees, with total sales of $8.78 billion. Nike and the athletic shoe industry have evolved into one of the most competitive market in recent years. But, analysts believe that athletic shoe sales will slow down over the next few years. The slowdown will come with the change in consumer trends. For instance, the younger market is beginning to buy more casual shoes and work boots. Another reason for the slowdown is that people are buying more medium priced athletic shoes and not going for the high price brand name shoes. As a result, this is bringing Nike a lot more compe ...

Line managers prefer informal sources of recruitment such as word-of-mouth recommendations or purchasing peoples names off the Professional and Executive Register and contacting them directly. This enables autonomy and unaccountability over the choice of successful applicant, and the stereotyped ideal recruit is white, male, aged 30 to 40, and married, i.e. with wife, children and mortgage. This state of affairs is difficult to change, as line managers are patriarchally elevated as the providers, the organizations breadwinners, thus m ...
