Op-ed: "In July 2021, the Supreme Court laid down a unanimous decision that would drastically alter the college sports landscape forever: the ability to pay college athletes."

As women decide to enter into N.I.L. deals, there should always be some caution as to what deal they are signing, just as anyone should have caution as they approach any contract. The deals themselves, though, have been a key building block to the funding and promotion of women’s sports over the p...

Op-ed: "Ultimately, if the United States wants to maintain its hegemony and keep its edge over global competitor China, it’s going to have to earn its keep by leading the pack in the fight against climate change and global warming."

It remains to be seen if Biden’s words will spur concrete action. The financial contributions he has committed will undoubtedly help those in need, but more needs to be done to fill the gaps where the U.S. has floundered in the past.

United Student Government (USG) elections began on April 11 and concluded on April 12.

Rose Hill’s United Student Government (USG) did not disclose sanctions that were placed on candidates last election cycle, and that it is USG’s policy not to disclose to voters when candidates are sanctioned.

With United Student Government (USG) elections starting today, Monday, April 11, The Fordham Ram conducted an investigation into USG election processes which uncovered a lack of transparency about candidates who break the organization’s lengthy rules while campaigning, raising questions about why USG does not disclose important information to voters.

The investigation discovered that in the 2021 USG election cycle, its Elections Commission placed sanctions on several candidates then-running for office after an internal investigation into misconduct. USG’s standard operating procedure is not to publish or share any information about such investigations’ results.

According to several students interviewed by the Ram, the sanctions were put in place after someone complained to USG election officials about a series of text messages shared in a group of at least 11 USG senators, executive board members and committee members that disparaged another member of USG. The name of the group chat in which the messages were sent was also changed to various insulting phrases about said candidate.

The Ram spoke to Fordham students who feel it is important for USG to be transparent to the community it is elected to represent.
