+ There’s a shocking lack of articles about the fact that I’m graduating.
+ In a surprising role reversal, the Daily is doing the mocking and it turns out they’re also good at it.
+ Prosecuting frat stars: the case for law school.
+ Does using the word ‘diversity’ in a press release suddenly make an organization progressive?
+ Confused by the uncomfortable tingly feeling you got reading this article? It’s just you agreeing with a Republican.
+ Just vote for Prop 1 already. My Geo Prizm can’t take the stress for much longer.
+ Full page article about sports. Didn’t read it.

+ The Daily has a new beta website. The goal of the site is to reflect a “readers-first approach on news delivery.” I didn’t realize that this wasn’t what the old website did.

+ The Daily endorses Prop 1. So do we! Don’t forget to vote on May 5th.

+ ”Somebody has to care” about the sportz. It won’t be me.

+ Fantastic Students for Choice Viewpoint on why the Hyde Amendment is awful. 

+ Being a transfer students can be really hard. Michigan does not have a great reputation for helping these students. 

+ A Bush-era surgeon general came to campus and spoke about things. His declaration that “the plague of politics has its own morbidity and its own mortality” indicates that he has found a second career writing overly dramatic campaign ads (that last ad is especially important)

The Daily is actually really good today. I don’t know how to feel about this.
+ Carolyn Gearig investigated the current campus climate around sexual assault prevention and awareness. This past year has brought a lot of changes, including 92 new volunteers to SAPAC! (Also my project to develop resources for faculty, including a syllabus statement about campus resources, is mentioned, no biggie i’m famous, whatever)
+ Your must-read today. A response to comments to international students telling them to “go home”: “Go back to my own country? This is my country. Go back to Lebanon? I wish I could.” #MichiganInColor #KillinIt
+ Check out the Daily’s best of Ann Arbor rankings for your new Ann Arbor bucket list. (But Hatcher is the best place to study? I’m personally obsessed with the Fine Arts Library in Tappan. Reply with your fav study spots because I’m always looking for more.)
+ The AA City Council debate hosted at the Ford School touched on some ~rad~ topics, like affordable housing, police/citizen relations, transportation, and the prospect of changing the elections to allow students to participate. See, but you’d have to get students to actually vote….
+ The administration is considering some much-needed changes to the student sexual misconduct policy! And I was quoted! #fame #celebrity
+ Read about the history of SAPAC, the Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center (and Very Important Thing in Laura’s Life), one of the first university centers dedicated to ending sexual violence on college campuses. Sometimes “Leaders and Best” actually means something.
+ Bonus bullet! Students marched for a $15 minimum wage! #RaiseTheWage
