Sexual Assault on Campus

The Rostrum sits down with Darrah Jones, Sexual Assault Support Advocate, to discuss the topic of sexual assault on college campuses, at the University of Utah and across the nation. We explore the information and context of rape and sexual assault and how, as students, we can combat rape culture and the violence it perpetuates.

Sustainability Office

This week, The Rostrum interviewed Amy Wildermuth, Chief Sustainability Officer, and Sarah Lappe, Communications and Development Coordinator for the Sustainability Office. We discuss the history of the Sustainability Office, its successes on campus, plans to make University of Utah carbon-neutral by 2050, and how students can be more environmentally conscious and get involved.

A New Year

To kick off the new academic year, The Rostrum asked students what their goals were for themselves in and out of school. We also had the opportunity to sit down with last Summer’s Orientation Team Leaders to revisit what it’s like to come to college for the first time. Finally, we interviewed Chris Mead, Assistant Professor in the Honors College, about what it’s like starting out in a career in higher education.
