'The place is Bedlam': the chaotic aftermath of freshers' week

the guardian - Wed, 26/09/2018 - 17:19

Every year, thousands of students descend on their new homes, generating waste and noise. How are universities cleaning up the mess?

‘At the end of the day, the place is Bedlam,” says Sarah Jeal, a communications advisor at Kingston University, pointing to an enormous white marquee where music is blaring, sweet wrappers are strewn on the floor and everyone is carrying a sponsored plastic Domino’s Pizza bag stuffed with leaflets and party flyers. “There’s a big clean up overnight and then the whole thing starts again tomorrow.”

Outside the tent, busloads of new undergraduates are arriving on campus. Every trip is at capacity as more than 17,000 students descend on this leafy town for the start of freshers’ week.

According to the latest Ucas figures, a record 33.5 percent of the 18-year-old population in England are starting university this September. With universities running full pelt during the first week, campuses are busier and louder than ever. External companies and organisations are on site to reach new students, and with them they bring leaflets, branded freebies, balloons, sweets, plastic pens and a huge amount of waste.

Statue wars: what should we do with troublesome monuments?

the guardian - Wed, 26/09/2018 - 14:00

The global protest movement to tear down urban memorials that reinforce racism is rewriting the very story of our cities. Should any monument be safe?

Cape Town was the first. In March 2015, a student named Chumani Maxwele brought a bucket filled with shit to the University of Cape Town, where there stood a statue of Cecil Rhodes, the British diamond magnate, colonial politician and avowed white supremacist. “There is no collective history here – where are our heroes and ancestors?” Maxwele announced. He splashed the contents of the bucket over the monument.

The incident attracted national attention and within days had grown into a full-scale protest. Students covered the Rhodes statue with graffiti and plastic bags, and promised to demonstrate until it was removed. The statue had drawn criticism before, but none of such sustained anger, even though there was no mistaking what the Rhodes monument represented. Erected in 1934, it occupied the very centre of the campus, the bronze Rhodes gazing out over the city as though contemplating creation: his and, perhaps, God’s.
