Students who support Trump are finding it hard to enjoy the bounty of all their years of hard work. One student, Kera O’Brien, was booed during her own graduation, by her classmates, for wearing a Trump- Pence button on her cap.

Last year, the President’s son called out the bias and elite left that’s infected our colleges and was harshly slammed by the liberal media for speaking the truth. Now more the truth in his words shows to be true.

According to the Lone Conservative site, they offer a platform for students, by students, to share their thoughts on politics, current events, and conservative campus culture.

In an academic world in which liberalism abounds and insanity is a daily occurrence, it can be hard to be a campus conservative.
If you’ve encountered something on campus that you find illogical, nonsensical, or just plain weird, we want to hear about it. Whether you’re a campus conservative feeling insecure about your ideology or repressed from speaking your mind, or a graduate hoping to better network with other young conservatives, we hope to be a new home for you.
