Letter to the Editor: Big Ten shouldn’t sell off its integrity


For me, the participation of schools exclusively from the Midwest was what made the Big Ten charming and appealing. I hope that advertisements in Michigan Stadium aren’t next, but I can’t say I’d be shocked by anything in a world where money trumps everything.

Letter to the Editor: The ‘U’ should take advantage of local food


Most food served in University dining halls travels hundreds of miles, uses thousands of gallons of water and is picked well before its ripely filled with the essential nutrients that should be appearing on our plates.
