ANN ARBOR – The University of Michigan has been sued for suspending a student who allegedly had “nonconsensual sex” with one of his female friends in his dorm room, despite the fact that the “victim” refused to press criminal charges and expressed “uncertainty” over her allegation, according to the lawsuit. Drew Sterrett, the 21-year-old engineering major who filed the lawsuit late last month, claims campus administrators refused to fully consider any of the evidence which he says proves his innocence, nor allow him to fight the accusation in a court of law. “My client has been completely railroaded; there’s...Read More

After Tal Fortgang’s article explaining his own privilege and why he isn’t ashamed of it went viral, liberals began attacking the parent organizations of The Princeton Tory, where the article was originally published.

In fact, Americans-—millennials, in particular—-dispassionately take religious freedom for granted. This is either because we are less concerned with religion, freedom, or both. Why should millennials invest their time and energy into defending religious freedom if they are indifferent or less concerned with religion on a personal level? A recent Pew Research study claims that 54% of millennials believe this increasingly non-religious attitude “doesn’t make much difference for American society.” In an interview with the Review, Dr. Thomas...Read More
In a speech peppered with themes of class warfare and calls for socioeconomic equality for all, President Barack Obama recently urged a crowd of roughly 1,400 University of Michigan students, faculty and administrators to join him in his quest to pressure Congress to approve a federal minimum wage hike. “How do we rebuild an economy that creates jobs and opportunities for every American?” the president asked at his speech Wednesday. “I want to focus on something a lot of people in Michigan are working very hard to accomplish right now, and that is raising the minimum wage to help...Read More
