  • They Both Die at the End – General Review
    Summer break is the perfect opportunity to get back into reading. Adam Silvera’s (2017) novel, They Both Die at the End, can serve as a stepping stone into the realm of reading. The pace is fast, action-packed, and develops loveable characters. Also, Silvera switches point of view each chapter where narration mainly focuses on the protagonists, […]
  • My Favorite Book – Freshwater
    If there’s one book that I believe everyone should read once in their life, it’s my favorite book – Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi. From my course, Queer Literature under Dr. Bill Albertini, I discovered Emezi’s Freshwater (2018). Once more, my course, Creative Writing Thesis Workshop under Professor Amorak Huey, was instructed to present our favorite […]

“Humans vs. Zombies” had no place on campus

It amazes me that in today’s society, when violence on campuses has become so prevalent, university officials would allow the “Humans vs. Zombies” group to disrupt students for the past week.

Regardless of the fact that these “zombies” have been running around campus buildings distracting those of us who actually work, the fact they have guns is completely disrespectful. The tragedy at Virginia Tech is barely six months behind us and already, students are making a mockery of the violent act by shooting each other with Nerf guns. I was personally affected from Virginia Tech when a friend of mine’s cousin witnessed the aftermath of his next door neighbor, Ryan Clark’s, brutal death. Firearms are prohibited from campus buildings, and I believe these should be considered off limits as well. While their game may seem like pure entertainment to some, it’s a horrible reminder of death to others.

I have no problem with their game as long as it is held off campus. Numerous parks are within a short drive from the University. For even more effect, their game could be held at a paintball field where they could actually shoot one another in a safe environment. The point is, their actions are completely disrespectful and disrupting to those who are at the University attempting an education without fear of being shot by a foam dart.

It’s actually quite disturbing to know my fellow graduate students are so at ease morally and ethically about carrying these weapons to classrooms. For all the participants, please be courteous to your fellow students and keep your weapons hidden during class. The last thing I want to see while taking notes is your firearm.
