USC has proven itself incapable of properly addressing and handling cases of sexual misconduct on campus. The administration must be more transparent in showing the public the steps it is now taking in its long-overdue attempt to address pending cases of sexual harassment.

The 2019-2020 Student Government elections are quickly approaching. This campaign season had three candidates for speaker of the senate, two for treasurer, three for vice president and five for president for a total of 13.
Student Government, to many, isn’t an everyday concern. After all, despite record turnout in the last election, only 27.3 percent of the student body voted.
Upon careful consideration of the merits of both tickets, The Daily Gamecock endorses James Smith and Mandy Powers Norrell for governor and lieutenant governor, respectively. We believe that Smith adequately addressed many of the issues that we, as students and young adults, care about deeply and offered policy positions that we can stand behind.
The Daily Gamecock editorial board has decided to run endorsements for the following candidates based on a discussion surrounding the issues each candidate ran on. Multiple senior staff members (paid staff members that appear on our masthead) voted on each candidate based on the particular issues each candidate listed on their campaign website, their congressional website and through their official vote records (if they were an incumbent).
This is the first Student Government election cycle — and 2018-2019 will be the first term — to include a new speaker of the student senate position, as well as the transition towards a new role for the student body vice president. It has also seen a dramatic increase in solid, competent and qualified candidates for positions at all levels. However, there are still factors that differentiate the candidates, such as past experience, leadership and vision.
This week is Stigma Free USC Week at USC — a week of events designed to raise awareness and reduce the stigma of mental illness. As this article is being written, the website doesn't work if you're using campus WiFi.
Over the last week, The Daily Gamecock has reported on a string of crimes at student apartment complexes like the Retreat, Stadium Suites and the Village. Three teenagers were charged with several crimes following the final incident, the abduction of former USC student Jordan Dinsmore.
The Daily Gamecock admits it. We're not perfect.
While the last two years of Student Government elections have had central themes or issues, such as diversity and inclusion on campus or Gate-Gate, this year saw no significant differences between candidates' platforms. Instead, the central dynamic has been the Momentum ticket.
The Daily Gamecock strongly stands behind the American system of free elections and the right to express opinions critical of the government. Democracy depends on the legal existence of opposition parties, peaceful transition of power, acceptance of elections and an independent judiciary.

Welcome to the University of South Carolina, Provost Gabel.
The message spread by the Ku Klux Klan and the National Socialist Movement at this weekend's pro-confederate flag rally was hateful, atrocious and grotesque. The counter protesters, however, demonstrated the true beauty of free speech: that individuals can exercise their rights to spread understanding even when surrounded by ignorance.
The "Save our Horseshoe" movement is founded on the premise that a proposed housing project on the property currently home to Sandy's and the Baptist College Ministries will cast a shadow that will somehow destroy our historic horseshoe.We're unclear about, and the website and its adjoining petition are notably unclear on, how exactly a shadow would be a detriment to the Horseshoe since it already is mostly shaded at ground level from the thick tree cover and the historic buildings around its perimeter. If a building shadow were somehow more deadly for the Horseshoe than the other shadows, wouldn't the shadows from the 18-story Cornell Arms apartment complex (which is both closer to the Horseshoe and taller than the proposed 15-story "ICON" housing that is currently under fire) already have turned the area into a desolate wasteland?
Most students leave Columbia for the hottest months of the year, but for many incoming freshmen, the summer's New Student Orientation is the first time they've ever set foot on campus.
The theme of Mayor Steve Benjamin's state of the city address was a promise he made to Columbia.
