White supremacists marching at the University of Virginia – does this reflect the university’s attitude? [on hold]
White supremacist groups have been marching down in Charlottesville, Virginia, at the University of Virginia (article). Does this also in some ways reflect on the university itself for allowing the march to happen (see the disturbing photos in the linked NY Times article) and for all the subsequent violence to occur?

WHICH IS BETTER LANCASTER UNIVERSITY MANAGEMENT SCHOOL OR UNIVERSITY OF GLASGOW ?
Thomson had heart problems and nearly died when he was 9 years old. He attended the Royal Belfast Academical Institution, where his father was a professor in the university department, before beginning study at Glasgow University in 1834 at the age of 10, not out of any precociousness; the University provided many of the facilities of an elementary school for able pupils, and this was a typical starting age.

Miss Emerson has invited me to say a few words to this meeting in behalf of the women of my own race. As I have sat here and listened to the helpful and sympathetic words which have been spoken, I have felt that I bore upon my heart the burden of gratitude of all the negro women in the South, certainly of all the women and girls who have been under the influence of such schools and such teachers as the American Missionary Association has supplied. I do wish that I could show you enough of the need and tell you enough about the results to encourage you in the magnificent work you are doing for womanhood, wifehood and motherhood among us. My own father, years ago, studied for a time in Fisk University before it was really Fisk University; my mother's people, her brothers and sisters, also studied in Fisk University, so they were very anxious that their children should be in the same institution. For that reason, as it meant a good deal out of the family purse to board three or four children in such an institution as that, eight or nine years ago the family moved from a little town in the northern part of Kentucky to Nashville. We were reared in a quiet Christian home and early placed in Fisk University.
The foot conducts itself splendidly. We had a most enormous cram at Glasgow. Syme saw me again yesterday (before I left here for Glasgow), and repeated "Gout!" with the greatest indignation and contempt, several times. The aching is going off as the day goes on, if it be worth mentioning again. The ride from Glasgow was charming this morning; the sun shining brilliantly, and the country looking beautiful.
