Students For A Democratic Society

This week on The Rostrum we interview Shirley Reyes and Bryn Dayton, members of the Students for a Democratic Society. The “SDS” is an activist group that was inspired by the civil rights movement and is concerned with equality, economic justice, peace, and participatory democracy. Currently, this group is working to make the University of Utah a sanctuary for undocumented students.

The Rostrum: Senior Insights

With the academic year winding down, The Rostrum wanted to ask some senior students what they will remember from their time at the U and what advice they have for current and future students. So we invited graduating English majors, Kylee Ehmann, Kevin Priest, and Tricia Foster, to come on The Rostrum on the eve of finals to reflect on their undergraduate degrees and their best and worst experiences earning it.
