The hashtag #TheRealUW began trending shortly after reports surfaced that a freshman was pushed and spat on by a neighbor in Sellery Hall in the early morning hours of March 12. The alleged attacker shouted profanities and made racially motivated comments, calling the student poor, telling her she “didn’t deserve to be at [UW-Madison]” and that “she wasn’t pulling her own weight because she was on scholarship,” according to a blog post by Nora Herzog, who was present for the incident. Both Herzog and the victim are members of First Wave, a hip-hop scholarship program.
