There’s a university in Sweden
where students let out primal screams
at exactly 10pm each night. The
‘Flogsta Scream’ occurs when students
in Uppsala’s Flogsta neighborhood keep
up tradition by stopping what they’re
doing at precisely 10pm and
collectively screaming from their
windows, balconies, and rooftops to
help blow off steam and ease the
stresses of college life. SourceSource 2
Being black at the University of Missouri was tough long before the country started paying attention to why.
Cultural insensitivity, racial slurs and de facto segregation are the common threads minority students say separate the 7 percent of black students from the 77 percent white students that make up the school’s population. Four black students shared their experiences with The Huffington Post on what their life is like dealing with racism on campus.
“Ricky [Nierva] and I talked a lot about the idea of having rolling hills and curving paths and buildings behind buildings, so that you felt like there was always something around the corner. Because that’s what college life is like; that’s what being that age is like. You feel like you could do anything, like there’s something new wherever you go.” —Dan Scanlon
