Several buildings at Syracuse University appear to be vandalized with spray paint, including some with anti-university messages.
Unpopular Opinion: I like this. Whoever did this got exactly what they wanted, a reaction. Positive or overwhelmingly negative, whatever the case, they got it. What I am confused at is the expansive topics or subjects of the graffiti, topics spanning rape culture, free speech, or the always rising cost of our tuition. YES, it’s disturbing and sad that our beautiful buildings where blemished and YES, it’s infuriating to everyone at school who is truly proud to be a student at Syracuse University, and NO, I would never ever condone this, but I still choose to view it as constructive BECAUSE of the reaction it’s created and generated, that this reaction can be productive.
We’ve become a society and a people that doesn’t pay attention, desensitized and ignorant to most, and I sincerely hope that while we’re angry, we think about exactly why we are so angry. Is it the message and the words used by these “vandals” or the very act of the vandalizing you are most angry with?
I’m wearing, tights under pants, 2 shirts and a hoodie and I’m still cold, and up reading about the political significance of Dora the Explorer.

Dear Syracuse Global Warming,
I mean…I don’t hate it, but you need to show these first year students what it’s really like here. Back when I was a young child (last year), I used to walk to class in November through 6 feet of snow. What happened to the freezing temperatures? What happened to learning the hard way when you picked a rain jacket over a fleece comforter-blanket coat? Should I even bring up the fact that these kids won’t be able to brace themselves for frosty face when it comes in the heart of winter here? Keep up this nice weather, Syracuse Global Warming, but do so knowing that you are depriving new students of essential Orange experiences.
This is so bizarre for Syracuse
