To the Editor: Last Thursday's article and editorial about security officers going undercover was disgraceful and unprofessional. I think it's very doubtful that anyone even bothered to check the "facts" of the story at all. I also think that Kyle Yasigian failed to fully inform those he was quoting about the real nature of the article and aforementioned "facts.
To the Editor: We are writing this letter in order to clear some confusion about 200 Nights, namely Matt DeFranco's letter in last week's paper. We understand that the author has not been a student here at Fairfield for the past three years, so he may not be clear on the current state of affairs.
To the Editor: Your article by Carleigh Brower, published 11/6/03, "It's my party and I'll cry if I want to..." and it's journalistic license discredits me personally, and compels a response. I have not, but if you wish, I am certain you are entitled to find out who called the police to lodge a complaint about your Halloween / birthday party.
To the Editor: It is with profound grief that we express our immense gratitude to all who have comforted us during this difficult time. Our nephew, Mark Fisher, was brutally killed on Oct. 12, 2003 in the Argyle Rd. section of Brooklyn, N.Y. This senseless killing has not only shattered his immediate family, but also his extended family.
To the Editor: I do agree with Mr. Bond in a recent editorial that we should personally choose where we want to shop. Yes, I prefer the local hardware store to Home Depot. But I have the choice. What really gets me upset is when small towns pack their zoning boards with local political hacks to stop smart and well-managed business like Wal-Mart from being successful.
To the Editor: I am a member of the Class of 2004. At least, that's what my student ID says. That same ID shows my birth date as 12/6/82. That's right, I am a senior here and I am still 20 years old. Never did the fact that my birthday happens to be late in the year bother me quite so much as it has this semester.
To the Editor: After reading last week's article about students being angered by preferential registration, I felt compelled to reply. I am a University Fellows Scholar and receive preferential registration, and while the article presented some valid points, it failed to demonstrate the reason why the so-called "elite" students receive preferential registration.
To the Editor: It should be noted that the problem with not having enough tickets for this years 200 nights is due to SBRA and FUSA's lack of knowledge concerning this event. This lack of knowledge is proven by Lauren DeSteno's remarks concerning 200 nights.
To the Editor: I live in the townhouses and brought the issue of lack of access to the attention of several people in housing after I couldn't get into the apartments after the first week or two of school. I also wrote Fran Koerting (Director of Residence Life) and Mike Tortora (Coordinator of Information Services) an extensive (two page) e-mail outlining my concerns.
To the Editor: Students often complain about the apathy present in our school community. Over the past few years, FUSA has tried to bring back the luster associated with many of our traditions such as the Dogwood Dance in the spring, Senior Mug Nights at the Levee, and the Harvest semiformal this fall.
