Tuesday, Nov. 25

As anger, disappointment and shock spread across the country following the news that Officer Darren Wilson will not be indicted for fatally shooting Michael Brown Jr., Lewis & Clark students this morning gathered outside J.R. Howard and draped Frank Manor House in black banners to show solidarity with the unarmed 18-year-old.

“I feel like I died a thousand times.”

“Yesterday I wrote in my book,” Black Student Union Co-Rep Darius Grays (’16) said to the crowd standing outside J.R. Howard. “I feel like I died a thousand times.”

The LC Community Rallies for a Middle East Minor

Lewis & Clark is known for its international studies program, but recent faculty and student efforts are pushing to cover an overlooked program: Middle East Studies.

A newly founded student movement called the Middle-East Initiative (originally the Arabic Initiative) is determined to show that a Middle East Studies minor and full-time Arabic language program are both needed and desired by students. Since last spring, club members have published an editorial in the Pioneer Log, gathered signatures on a petition and appealed before the Associated Students of Lewis & Clark Senate with unanimous support. All the while, they’ve been putting together the first Middle East Studies Symposium.

Reed Voices Concerns Over Nude Tradition

ASLC discusses future of RKSK Initiation with member of Reed Honor Council

By John Rogers /// News EditorTry12-e1411017844308-1024x114

On Nov. 6, the Associated Students of Lewis & Clark met with Lee Belcher, a member of Reed College’s Honor Council, to discuss the tradition of Reed students streaking on LC’s campus. Belcher was concerned about the event, the Reed Kommunal Shit Kollektiv, which involves Reed first-years jogging naked through LC’s campus chanting Communist slogans.

Belcher started the discussion after this year’s event, when, they said, “many Reedies very vocally questioned whether the event [was] respectful to everyone at LC, specifically victims of sexual assault.”
