All across America students are swarming back to campus as another school year begins. While you were in the middle of moving in and dreading the thought of sleeping for the next semester on a Twin XL bed, the college news stories just kept popping up. This week we found both a professor and a student succumbing to the dark side on the war on drugs. On the lighter side of things, you’ll be quite surprised to find out where the nation’s first all-vegan college dining hall just opened up.
No clue what we’re talking about? Fear not! It’s time for another edition of StudentAdvisor’s This Week in College News:
University of North Texas Opens Fist All-Vegan College Cafeteria
Being a vegan living on campus can be tough. Dealing with a slim selection in the cafeteria and having your food prepared alongside carnivorous options isn’t ideal for the hungry college student who values animal rights. Luckily, the University of North Texas recognized this issue and decided to open the first-ever all-vegan college cafeteria.
According to the school, the decision to convert one of the school’s five cafeterias into serving up all-vegan cuisine came after the overwhelming popularity of “Meatless Mondays”. But if you’re absolutely jonesing for fried chicken don’t worry – UNT has converted another one of their five cafeterias into one dedicated to southern home style cooking.
Dartmouth Chemistry Grad Student Busted for Meth Lab
It’s not uncommon to hear about chemistry students gone rogue, but for one to do it at Dartmouth is another story. Randy Lambreghts, a 28-year-old chemistry grad student at Dartmouth College, was arrested earlier this week for the attempted manufacture of methamphetamine/amphetamine. According to reports he was running a meth lab out of his off-campus apartment which also housed several other Dartmouth students.
Cal State San Bernadino professor allegedly led motorcycle gang, drug ring
Imagine if your beloved professor turned out to be a motorcycle gang king pin. Students and adminstrators at Cal State San Bernadino are having a hard time wrapping their heads around how Stephen Kinzey, who taught kinesiology at the school for 10 years, was charged with charged leading a methamphetamine drug ring that involved several other dealers.
CSSB’s President Albert Karnig told the press that the school had no prior knowledge of Kinzey’s possible involvement with drug trafficking in a motorcycle gang. Karning issued the statement: “To our knowledge, this is the first notice that anyone on our campus has had regarding this situation. Our university police department and the entire campus community, as relevant, will work as closely as possible with the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department to assist with the investigation to help assure that all the facts are accurate. If the allegations are indeed true, this is beyond disappointing.”
