Letters To The Editor
LTE: Campus School Volunteers And Parents Deserve To Be Heard
The Campus School Volunteers and the parents are simply asking for an opportunity to have our voices heard. We deserve for the BC administration to be transparent throughout this process. After all of the dedication we have committed to this wonderful organization, we believe it is only right that we have a chance to speak on behalf of our school’s mission.
LTE: The Campus School Must Not Be Moved
Surely it is evident that my fellow Boston College Alumni and I have a passion for the Campus School as a place that shaped us personally and guided us professionally. I believe you would agree that the interest of the CS students must be placed first—before BC students’ academic pursuits and otherwise, but also before BC’s facilities concerns.
LTE: The Sieve Chant Does Not Reflect BC's Jesuit Ideals
This Letter Is In Response To The 'Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down' Column Published On 11/18/13
I firmly believe the Editors need to change their opinion about the sieve cheer in TU/TD. The “sieve” part is okay but the lines that follow it are not. They are wrong, insensitive, offensive, and degrading.
LTE: JFK's Assassination Should Be Commemorated With Talk Of His Life
President Kennedy is remembered as one of the most beloved presidents in our country’s short timeline. Lately, however, articles have been published through various media focusing solely on the “JFK Conspiracy.” Although Kennedy’s last moments in Texas are still unexplainable, at this time it seems more important to focus on the life he led.
LTE: More Must Be Done To Fight The Prevalence Of Eating Disorders At BC
The Monday morning after Love Your Body Week at Boston College, my inbox still full of inspiring messages to bash fat talk and the “You Are Beautiful” t-shirt folded neatly in my closet, I opened my laptop to find that countless friends had shared a blog post with the title “5 Reasons to Date a Girl with an Eating Disorder.” My heart sank, my stomach clenched, and—trigger warnings unheeded—I read the article.
LTE: Students Must Engage In Fight Against Fossil Fuels
I urge the BC community to think deeply about what “men and women for others” means in the contemporary world. In doing so, consider telling the victims of Super Typhoon Haiyan that you knew you could take action but were concerned with humiliation.
LTE: Four Questions We Should Be Asking After The 2013 Fall Concert
In Response To “Fall Concert Took $112,000 Loss With Lowest Turnout In Three Years” By Andrew Skaras
Although the concept of losing $112,000 in a single night on a concert of average music sends my blood pressure through the roof, I am more concerned with the way that the “Fall Concert Fact Finding Committee” (FCFFC) approached the aftermath of the event.
LTE: A Time To Be Proactive
I’m here to debate the notion that UGBC does not matter, that elections do not have consequences, and that we are not agents of change. Put simply, we are and we have been for decades.
