This is the Ruckus (dis)orientation guide to the University of Washington. It is an inversion of college orientation guides: it orients you about communities and cool activities around UW, and the things that are actually useful to know. It disorients you from the university administration’s intended plan to sell you an alienated mass-production education while draining you like the capitalist vampires they are. We made this because we feel it took years for us discover many great things around this campus; so we’ll pass along the results from years of accidents and serendipity.
Includes articles on survival, campus organizing, the Seattle music scene, polyamory, consent, tuition hikes, anti-Sodexo sit-ins, the Canadian tar sands, poverty, Joe Hill, unions, Seattle newspapers, DIY publishing, anti-sweatshop organizing, El Salvador, the School of the Americas, Decolonize/Occupy Seattle, and a community calendar.
Ruckus is an independent newspaper for the University of Washington community by the Ruckus Collective. We are for participatory democracy, social justice, collective liberation, and resistance to killing the planet.
