This letter is in response to the recent articles covering immigration. My grandfather Albert Joseph Bialek came to the United States from Poland (Galicia) in 1910. According to the Ellis Island website he boarded the ship, Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse, in Bremen, Germany (formerly Prussia.) He had just...

I am sorry, Mr. or Ms. Editor, but you have made a mistake. I served at the Botanical Heights neighborhood with my sorority sisters for Make a Difference Day (MADD). We cleaned a playground, made a garden and painted the streets. I spent most of my time at the playground, overrun with weeds, grass, trash,...

Unsolicited Letter to Aspiring POTUS’: Sometimes, if you understand only ‘weak’ and ‘strong,’ you are blind to ‘right’ and ‘wrong.’ This year’s U.S. presidential election isn’t binary. It’s not red or blue, Coke or Pepsi, Clinton or Trump. On paper, it’s a choice between...

Okay, enough is enough. I came to St. Louis in the fall of 1969 and garnered three degrees from SLU. I’ve been connected to the University as an undergrad, grad student, adjunct instructor, Simon Rec Center member or basketball season ticket holder ever since. I have seen a lot of Billikens come and...

I enjoyed Emily Win’s commentary on discussing sex, or the lack thereof until marriage. Not because I agree with the premise, nor do I know who she cited when she said that chaste people are healthier -- no, I liked her article because I agree that we don’t have the opportunity to discuss sex on...

Regarding the Clock Tower Accords: Apply a simple test. Ask if each of the initiatives would make a noticeable difference to a poor African-American teen, north of Delmar. For items that fail that test, like the artwork, ask if you are still happy to absorb tuition and fee increases to pay for them. Bonus...

After reading the Opinion article in last week’s paper, I feel a responsibility to respond. I have been noticing on social media, mostly on Facebook, that many within the SLU community are disrespectfully attacking the article, and I feel that it’s undue. The section under which the article was written...

Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinion

Personally, I feel as if the message portrayed in the Sept. 4 article gave a sincere misrepresentation of the purpose of Oriflamme. Oriflamme members are more than happy to give of themselves freely for the betterment of the University and its students, and to help new members of SLU call this campus...

By Becky Killian, Junior, Urban Affairs major in College of Arts and Sciences   Presentations concerning sexual assault frustrate me. The audience at these “dialogues” is always defensive and, at the end, the spoiler that a heavily intoxicated victim cannot give consent always proves to...
