One maskless photo at an off-campus party has cost three students at UMass Amherst their entire spring semester. The three female freshmen were attending an off-campus party when they snapped the maskless photo, which was posted on Instagram. It's not clear when the party took place, though one student has a clover on her shirt and many students are wearing green, suggesting it could date back to St. Patrick's Day. A party known as the 'Blarney Blowout' is typically thrown at the school during March. The three students have since been suspended from UMass Amherst, which may only be the beginning of their disciplinary problems at school.


Absolutely ridiculous!! Were this MY child, not only would I be suing for refund of the $16k semester tuition, my child would be transferring to a university with working brains running it!!

Need help here but isn't there currently or a just decided case before the Supreme court dealing with a school disciplining a student for off campus behavior?

Self-righteous twits. These students have paid for and done all that was asked until being denied final exams. There exists a contract that the school has broken. Sad that these kids must sue to secure; 1: their rights and, 2: their damages. Hope Amherst has to eat into their endowment funds.

These students off campus behavior, no matter what it is, is none of the Universities business. This is a blatant violation of their rights and needs to be shut down.

If they play this right, not only will their degree be paid for, they will start off with a nice nest egg when they do graduate.

Wikipedia says they have an endowment of $368 million. Even after the lawyers’ cut, that’s a nice chunk of change to go after.

I have ben complaining about Student Affairs operations at my university and others, for several decades. They have seized control of academics, unfortunately, and no one knows what to do. At my university, Student Affairs manufactured an edict that no student should be made to feel uncomfortable in class. My response was that I was paid to make students uncomfortable in class, using examples that made each student examine his or her own biases.. Student Affairs also asked me to put a sticker on my office door which would signify that I would offer a supportive environment to homosexual students. My response was to refuse to do so - that I was insulted by their presumptions about me. I have not taught in 20 years, but things appear to be worse than when I retired. And Student Affairs bears the blame.

Transfer to a Texas university but NOT UT-Austin. Stupidity rules in Austin which is to say the area is ruled by liberals and UT-Austin does not get a pass so avoid the Texas cesspool and pick, say, Texas Tech where rationality rules.

Why anyone would even consider going to a Liberal Arts college is beyond me. That degree is virtually useless, hideous expensive, with years of student loans to pay back, and all for what? To play patty-cake with a bunch of self-absorbed narcissists who teach that the best country in the whole wide world is a hopeless cause? Doesn't seem to be working out too badly for UMass Amherst...they make TONS of money off the Commisar wanna be's, cough uh, students they fool into attend their their little Liberal pity party.

I wish I could be as enthusiastic about Tech as others here, but I can't. Youngest daughter transferred in without woke baggage and encountered a prof who promoted white privilege crap right off the bat. Also, admissions and grades were biased towards kids of alumni and/or donations. Nothing unique of course, but shows Tech falls in line with the rest of them. She spent one year and then out to another university much more conducive to learning.

After the propaganda speech my daughter did the next best thing and dropped the in person course and took it on line. Here is the link to the department: Yes, even Tech has one of these departments. She cannot remember the name of the teacher.

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump went off on RINO Republican Liz Cheney after she got “fired” from her position as House GOP Leadership. Cheney has made it completely clear in recent months that she will not only backstab former President Donald Trump but also the Republican party in an effort to side with Democrats. In response to Cheney’s removal, Trump released a statement. “Liz Cheney is a bitter, horrible human being,” the former president said. “I watched her yesterday and realized how bad she is for the Republican Party. She has no personality or anything good having to do with politics or our Country.

We should never forget how we felt in the days after November 3, 2020. Donald Trump’s sizeable Election Night lead mysteriously disappeared while we slept, and then...silence. A surreal quiet followed in the days after the election. There was little of the usual back-and-forth of the talking heads, no real argument about whether there had been fraud — just an eerie quiet that pervaded the political class, Silicon Valley, and corporate America. Nothing to see here! The most secure election in U.S. history! Then in February 2021, Molly Ball wrote in Time magazine what we had surmised: we had been witness to election theft.

DeSantis, who had lifted the state’s policy requiring such proof because of the pandemic, said that reopened Florida now offers ample opportunity for employment, and capable residents need to get off the government dole, according to CBS Miami. “Normally when you’re getting unemployment, the whole idea is that it’s temporary, and you need to be looking for work to be able to get off unemployment,” DeSantis said. “It was a disaster, so we suspended those job search requirements.

After a voice vote, Cheney said: ‘I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again, is anywhere near the Oval Office.’ Cheney had addressed Republicans in the room before the vote.

You have to love liberal media. President Donald Trump is no longer in office, but he’s still living rent free in their heads. They’re still completely obsessed with him and basically can’t live without him. They always need him as a focal point. The New York Times ran this “gotcha” story today, as though it were something truly significant, “Over 100 Republicans, including former officials, threaten to split from G.O.P.” What is the issue, the New York Times says? The fact that the GOP still is supportive of Trump. “This is a first step,” said Miles Taylor,

The strong words of caution came in a letter from Cardinal Luis Ladaria, prefect of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, addressed to Archbishop José Gomez of Los Angeles, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

The maker of Budweiser, among other brands with a robust craft beer collaboration line, has partnered with radical professors in education and humanities at Arizona State University (ASU) to develop and implement a 15-module training program called “To Be Welcoming.” It is based on critical race and gender theory.

The Colonial pipeline, which snakes 5,500 miles along the eastern U.S., transports 2.5 million barrels of gasoline a day, and provides 45 percent of the region’s fuel consumption, was shut down on Friday in response to the hacking. Vice reported on the hackers’ odd statement posted on the “dark web”: “We are apolitical, we do not participate in geopolitics, do not need to tie us with a defined government and look for other our motives,” the statement from the DarkSide ransomware group reads.
