Op-Ed: TUPD brings ‘Deadly Exchange’ to Tufts

The predictable silence of a quiet street at two o’clock in the morning was broken when an armored SWAT vehicle arrived on the block.

Op-Ed: Why We Lost

Editor’s Note: Aneurin Canham-Clyne is a former News Editor at the Tufts Daily. Over the past two years, the Tufts left has frequently lost when we ought to have won. Abolition of Greek life? An abject failure. The “Students Advocating for Students” free speech incident? It got national media coverage. Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) resolutions? Passed, but […]

Letter to the Editor: Dean Solomont ignores double standards for dialogue

Disclaimer: Noah Habeeb is a former executive copy editor at the Daily. Alan Solomont writes in his April 18 op-ed “Is this civic engagement?” that “Tufts University has a long and impressive history of students advocating for change.” I would add that Tufts also has a long and impressive history of chastising these very students […]
