Transcript What is this thing for? Senior Computer Science major Fhad Khan sells authentic Islamic treasures on Islamic Awareness day. The MSA sold goodies, antiques, and even did tattooing to educate students about the Islamic way of life, because sometimes, activism is education Photo by Kena Alvarado e\CTrYE Students unite to educate their p on connvpitj issues ir peers All you need is love! Paul Schwartz sits outside the UC, spreading his message of peace and love in the aftermath of September 11th. Some students with a cause simply staged their own demonstrations, rather than waiting for a group to work with them. Photo by Rich Risma 56 7 Student Life The University campus consisted of thousands of different types of students. One of our most celebrated traits was our diversity Every student that attended classes last year had a different background, political stance, and beliefs. Often when such diversity mingles clashes of opinions can become a problem. Most students, however, chose to take some nonviolent actions to inform other students of the controversy. College campuses have been historically renowned for protesting and are often the starting point for revolutionary ideas. Cougars were no exception. Many controversial things hit the fan last year and everyone had an opinion. An enormous amount of activism was spurred by the Sept. 11 tragedy, and some violence did erupt. Just after the incident a rash of violent acts against members of the Muslim community were being verbally abused and attacked. Many Muslim students had to be escorted to class. The Muslim Student Association jumped right to work advocating that they too were harmed by the attacks and in no way supported what happened. Also activists jumped into action about the debate of how America should act. Cars were decorated and graffiti expressed colorful opinions. Of course there were also the inevitable political debates and the close mayoral election had every one talking. Even the Yankees defeat at the Pennate divided the student population. a™m<i The UC was the most popular place to change peoples minds and hold protests. A hungry student could barely wander down there without being handed some flyer advocating some subject. Sophomore, Education major Kit Drexler said "Every time I walked to the UC I was handed a flyer about some meeting or association." She said it always made her feel like she should participate in something. Whatever the controversy students had an opinion and being college, they expressed it with a vengeance. Story by Brandy Stoesz I Can you believe it? Three passersby inspect the anti- abortion display set up outside the library. This protest, staged by a group known as Survivors, was one of the most controversial events held at UH, sparking coundess debates among students of all political ideologies.
