From “Cherokee Mistress” to “Taco Time Man,” Halloween costumes have become more and more controversial as the years go on. Recently, the ‘We are a culture, not a costume.’ movement has been making big waves in the Halloween community. Racial stereotypes can be seen in costumes for all ages. Oftentimes, it is taking something sacred from that culture, such as a headdress or a spiritual day, and mimicking it in a stereotype. This particular movement takes a stand against racial stereotypes and their use in Halloween costumes. Using posters, hashtags and speeches, the supporters of this movement are normal people of different cultures trying to educate people on these controversial costumes.

NSU is always looking for ways to better their campuses and make sure the students are taken care of.

When it comes to disabilities, NSU has to follow guidelines set forth by the Americans with Disabilities Act. ADA gives civil rights protection to individuals with disabilities similar to that provided to individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, age and religion. It guarantees equal opportunity and access for individuals with disabilities in public accommodations, employment, transportation, state and local government services and telecommunications.
