This is a mega-list of the top 15 campus controversies for the months of April & May 2015. Enjoy.

15.

14.

At U Michigan (and at many other schools as well), students rallied to get the film American Sniper cancelled. Luckily, they failed.

Of course, films which perpetuate violence in general (say for example a film about WWII where Germans are killed in large numbers) don’t get protested anywhere. It’s only a problem when it’s violence against specific victim groups. THEN student activists care. Cognitive dissonance is pouring down the halls at UMich.

Safe space alert! Feminists at Oberlin college can dish it out but can’t take it. They will label people on the political right ‘rape supporters’ by name, but need a “safe space” for opinions they disagree with.

Feel bad being called ‘spring admits’? Berkeley sympathizes with you, and wants to make their campus more inclusive. So they are doing away with the phrase “spring admits” for students starting in the spring semester, as opposed to the fall one. Campus Reform reports:

“According to The Daily Californian, the public school’s student newspaper, the change is an effort to make students who are admitted for the spring semester feel less inferior to those admitted in the fall.”

Well… if you were admitted in the spring only, and didn’t do something like study abroad or intentionally take time off in the fall…you likely WERE academically inferior to the fall admits. Kind of by definition. Why can’t we admit that some people are better at certain things than others? Why does EVERYONE need to feel like they are on par with everyone else. This is just a higher ed version of a participation trophy.
