To the Editor:

I would like to take this opportunity to respond to the editorial opinion article, State of the University Address. As stated in the United States Constitution, everyone is entitled to freedom of speech and their own opinion. There are a few topics that I would like to comment on as there are always two sides to a story.

In previous years, the State of the University Address is an event that normally took place in the middle or towards the end of the spring semester. I want to clarify that I am “not exempt” from this obligation.

In fact, the State of the University Address will be held on Tuesday March 1st in the lower level of the campus center. This event is open to the public and will cover the overarching initiatives and goals that FUSA has worked on. There will also be remarks made on the future of the organization as there is currently a Constitutional Convention making changes to improve the organization.

In regards to the recent resignations comment that was brought up, there has only been one resignation in FUSA for the past two months. After reviewing all of the students who resigned, it was not because of any internal problems within FUSA, but rather other commitments and priorities that wouldn’t have allowed them to continue fulfilling their roles and responsibilities.

After getting feedback in regards to the editorial opinion, from students around campus, I want to let everyone know that neither I nor any other official in FUSA is hiding or being untruthful about the work that we are doing to improve the Fairfield experience for all students.

I look forward to your presence on March 1st at 7:30pm, and if you have any ideas or suggestions on how FUSA can improve, feel free to contact me or anyone within the organization.

Best regards,

Eddie Muniz ‘11

FUSA President
