Letter to the editor: Creating confidence

BY BRYSON NITTA

I agree with Mr. Brennan that the code must be reformed. But I hope that he will also agree that while no election is perfect, this year’s election is a step forward in creating confidence in CSG elections.

Letter to the Editor: CSG's mature leadership

BY MICHAEL BRENNER

In the real world, representatives are not required to take up every issue citizens wish to be placed on the agenda. That is particularly true when, as with divestment, student government has little power, and empty resolutions of support can only lead to further societal polarization.

Letter to the Editor: CSG acted cowardly in reaction to BDS

BY BRIAN JOHNIDES

The CSG’s relinquishment of its duties, thinly veiled as a decision, and its subsequent indefinite shelving of the divestment issue, is ludicrous. But worst of all, it is completely insulting to the students for whom it exists to represent.

Letter to the Editor: E-cigarettes should be regulated as tobacco product

BY CLIFFORD DOUGLAS

BY ADITYA VEDAPUDI

Letter to the editor: The expanding infuence of the Athletic Department

BY JAKE PROSYNIUK

The circumstances surrounding the University’s response (or rather, the lack thereof) to the reported assault point to a growing disconnect between the interests of students and those of the school, which has been veiled with boisterous displays of supposed focus on students (see: Victors for Michigan).

Letter to the editor: Farewell, Dingell

BY STEVE ZOSKI

There was a genuine passion for progress in Mr. Dingell's eyes, and the 85-year-old had the same fiery look you might see on an idealistic, politically active college student who truly believes they can somehow change their world.

Letter to the Editor: Signaling support for survivors of sexual violence

BY ERIN KWEDERIS

The response has underscored the support for sexual assault survivors on this campus, but the University’s support is less clear. Without more explanation for the University’s four-year timeline, it seems reasonable to ask: what message does this send to women on campus?

Letter to the Editor: Students must demand answers from ‘U’

BY ALA ALSAIDY

To say I am disappointed with how the University handled the sexual assault accusations against former kicker Brendan Gibbons would be a massive understatement. I have never been more ashamed of the University I have so long proudly called my own.
