Letter to the Editor

Many college students in the twenty first century come to a university with the idea of learning a specific skill. Perhaps the student wants to become a doctor, a pharmacist, a teacher, a computer specialist, or a journalist, a diplomat, a financial analyst. With a little luck these students will achieve their ultimate goal. The road to that goal is sometimes a straight line. However, just as often the route is circuitous. On May 20,...

Letter to the editor

In Thomas Schwartz’s article “’Rumored’ Criminal Justice Curriculum Changes Worry Students” (4/11/2018), he reported that I had engaged in a “questionable” practice of selling a textbook that required students to pay me $20., but he failed to report that I did not require students to buy this casebook, but only to read the legal cases in it. I informed them that they could obtain these cases, listed in my course syllabus, free online....

Letter to the Editor: Voicing Opinions

Letter to the Editor I commend you all for making the decision last week to endorse a presidential candidate in the upcoming national election. You revealed your collective opinions, independent of the University’s, whichever it may be, on a topic that affects your readers — the student body. I first saw the editorial on your Facebook page.

Letter to the Editor: First Amendment

Letter to the Editor Whether my support of The Setonian’s endorsement of Secretary Clinton is in a minority or otherwise, I commend the editors for exercising their right in a democracy and in accordance with the First Amendment guaranteed by the Constitution. You have clearly stated the process, fairly assessed each candidate’s shortcomings, and made it clear in the last statement of the article whose opinions the votes represented....

Letter to the Editor: Supports Johnson

Letter to the Editor With all due respect the editors of this newspaper, I feel it necessary to respond to a grievous mis-characterization of one of the major presidential candidates in your Oct. 27 editorial in which your newspaper endorsed Hillary Clinton. Gary Johnson is not inept, and your brief and pointed judgment of him as such indicates either the bias or ignorance of the editorial staff. Everyone, including the editors of...
