Editorial: Welcome, Mike’s Pizza

Over the past several years, The Levee has attempted to lure in Fairfield students by increasing its variety of student programming. Even though the addition of some excellent bands last year helped matters, it did not yield a consistent or long-lasting result.

Cheers to being able to use our StagCards off-campus. For years, students at a slew of colleges around the country have been able to use their student IDs for a variety of purposes both on and off-campus. Finally, Fairfield has followed suit. Students will only be able to use money they add to their StagCards, not their dining dollars, at participating locations, yet the change is a major convenience for students wishing to dine and do errands off-campus.

CHEERS to the university for putting more effort into stopping academic dishonesty. Cheating is pervasive in any competitive atmosphere and will only come to a stop when there are sufficient penalties to stop people from feeling the risk is worth the reward.

Editorial: The raid heard ’round Fairfield

In last week's editorial we wrote that the U.S. Department of Education's report ranking Fairfield twentieth-eighth in the nation for alcoholic violations was overdrawn. It is ironic that the release of this study was followed by the raid on John Adams bar this past Thusday night.

Editorial: 28th in the nation

According to the U.S. Department of Education, Fairfield is ranked 28 in the nation for reported alcohol violations of colleges and universities. Even more prestigious, Fairfield is number one in Connecticut. These numbers are dubious, especially considering that state schools with upwards of 25,000 students, such as the University of Connecticut, are reporting a meager 136 violations compared to our 651.

CHEERS to Jesuit Awareness Week. This year the event marks the occasion of the fifteenth anniversary of the murder of six Jesuits, their housekeeper and the housekeeper's daughter. Their charge? Educating the people. The Jesuit identity is something to be proud of.

Editorial: Playing it safe

In light of recent violence and robberies surrounding Fairfield's campus, all students must be reminded that we in fact do not live in our own isolated Fairfield bubble. We are a part of the real world, and we see its upsides and downsides as much as any other community.

Editorial: Our apathetic legacy

Across the nation, college students are reminded that we are the least likely to vote in political elections. Political apathy is our legacy, as less than half of the 18-24 year-old age bracket votes. Coupled with the nationwide epidemic of political apathy is Fairfield's renowned student apathy.

Editorial: Cheers + Boos

Cheers to legal beirut tables! Legal or not, beirut tables were always going to be a fixture at Fairfield University. Now that they're legal, it makes carrying a huge piece of plywood into your house a lot easier...actually it doesn't make it an easier task, just less suspicious.

Editorial: Drugs at Fairfield: Are they a problem?

It is not every day that student residences are raided by law enforcement agencies and students are arrested on charges of drug dealing. In this week's article about drugs on campus, Dean of Students Mark Reed called the recent arrests "troubling." When such extraordinary events take place on campus, it gives everyone an opportunity to take pause and reflect on the issue.
