Abortion should not be used to catalyze discussion

November 26, 2018 Signal Contributor 1

Abortion should not be used simply as a tool to promote dialogue for the sake of what can only be described as the College’s tokenizing of a woman-centered issue. This is especially true at a college like our own that consistently cites “student safety” concerns when implementing policy after policy. […]

Letter to the Editor: Conservative rhetoric dangerous

November 12, 2018 Signal Contributor 1

Recently, conservative sentiments and factions on campus have experienced a huge resurgence, likely due both to backlash after the TCNJ Committee on Unity sit-in two years ago and also due to the rise of Trump and his administration. This resurgence is epitomized in the opinion piece published in the October 31st edition of The Signal, “Liberal campuses stifle open discourse.” […]

“The glistening bright sun had just peeped out of the horizon and birds chirped in exuberance when all of a sudden I heard the vociferous piercing sound of bullets. Fear was flashing as fast as lightning in my veins and there was absolutely no time to think about anything but to flee from our hometown Lahore and escape death. […]

An average of 4,700 pedestrians die and 66,000 are injured every year. This statistic implies a fairly obvious societal and personal cost of human death and suffering, but there is also a significant, although less obvious, environmental cost –– this statistic deters forms of transportation that are lower impact, such as walking, riding a bike, skateboarding or using a scooter.

“Is it just me, or is TCNJ under constant construction?” a girl asks her friend as she maneuvers around caution tape on the sidewalk.

Nearly one in five Americans has a disability, making them the nation’s largest minority, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. As a person who is currently able-bodied, I do not think I will ever truly understand the life of a person with a disability. People with disabilities face injustices in nearly every aspect of their lives from people who refuse to understand their struggle. […]

With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, both corporations and citizens alike have been smothered in the color pink, all in an effort to bring awareness to this disease. However, a light must finally be shed on the true consequences of these pink ribbons and other products being sold throughout the nation in the name of breast cancer awareness. […]
