Letter to the Editor
It’s disappointing that Chancellor Mark Wrighton, who has shared his home with cats and surely understands their kind and gentle nature, would allow Washington University to continue subjecting these sensitive animals to crude and painful medical training drills that do not help trainees learn how to properly intubate babies.
I may be spitting into the wind (to bust a urinary metaphor), but I wish the paper and the administration would drop the appellation “Wash. U.,” which sounds like an imperative to bathe, in favor of WUSTL (pronounced woo-stel or woos-til) as in UMSTL. In my day (I hate that phrase too, but it’s honest), only uninitiated grad students used the Wash. U. term…
My name is Schuyler Atkins, and I am a freshman here at Washington University. I am writing you concerning your recent article about the suspension of Sigma Alpha Epsilon activities involving racially charged action. My concern is not about the content of your article, but rather the comments that have been made on the article.
Water is like an oasis on our campus: I can never seem to find it, except in the fountains where its weak metallic flow is unpredictable at best. The drink machines on campus are filled with drinks that are incredibly high in calories and sugar (check the label on the sugar lemonade drink in some of the machines, for example).
I think it’s safe to say I would not have been accepted into Washington University in St. Louis in March of 2010 had my personal essay contained as many “likes” as my interview in StudLife has. What’s my point? Well, I’ll tell you.
There is no question that there were many issues with voting for students at Wash. U. this year.
To the editor: Your language, graphics and overall message in the article, “On-campus sex offenses rose in 2011, despite decrease in crime overall” (10/11/2012) provided misleading information to your readers and left me deeply disappointed. Sexual assault is a pervasive problem on all college campuses, including Wash. U.
On Monday, an article was released in Student Life claiming that EST and Clayton Paramedics were overwhelmed by the number of intoxicated students at W.I.L.D. We are writing to clarify several of the inaccuracies stated in the article. Both EST and Clayton Paramedics put a great deal of resources into W.I.L.D.
Dear Editor, This letter is in response to the article “Free birth control limits abortion, WU study finds” published on October 15th, 2012. After reading your article and the study cited in the article, the logical conclusion for me was that insurance providers should be required to cover all birth control methods without co-pay to make it even more accessible.
