Each January, the President of the United States delivers his State of the Union Address to Congress and the Nation. In this address, he details his assessment of the nation, as well as his plan for the following year. This year, President Obama treated us to more hollow promises and failed ideas that will drag us further into debt and make us all less free. We could respond to this by rebutting his ideas, but, this year, many of them were so ridiculous that they can hardly warrant an educated response. Therefore, we shall respond by giving to you our State of the Campus Issue, an in-depth and thoughtful conservative perspective on the state of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
In this issue, we shall delve into the lack of sufficient debate regarding the implementation of contextualized grading, the lack of transparency with which the Board of Governors has operated, the effort to extend in-state tuition to illegal aliens, the creation of new social justice positions within residence halls, sexual assault on campus, and a conservative review of The Hunger Games, Mockingjay, Part One and of works by the late, great Richard Weaver.
Our talented staff writers will expertly break down the issues affecting our campus, analyze them from a conservative viewpoint, and leave you, the reader, with a better understanding of life here at Carolina. So now, without further ado, we hope you enjoy this latest issue of the Carolina Review: The State of the Campus.
