SGA addresses confusion over policy and incomplete reporting

Letter to the Editor

February 9, 2011

In last week’s editorial, the editorial board articulated that, “There is such a thing as a student voice.”  As the president of the Student Government Association, I could not agree more.  This, however, is why recent conversations about the supposedly ‘new’ [Chartered Student Organizations]...

Student gives support to victims of sexual assault

Letter to the Editor

February 9, 2011

Dear Sexual Assault Victims, I wanted to let you know something very important. I want to let you know something that seems to be lost when these atrocities happen to you and others. Something that you may not feel in the initial stages of coping what happens to you. I want you to know that despite...

Administration’s apathy has left student groups slighted and confused

Letter to the Editor

February 4, 2011

About a week ago, cultural student organizations at Saint Louis University’s were brought together for an announcement. In a meeting led by the SLU administration, cultural student organization leadership was told that a new policy had been put in place. This policy has added more steps to efficiently...

Hunger does not discriminate

Anu Gorukanti

January 20, 2011

Hunger is a universal occurrence. It knows no religion, race, or gender. While we tend to view hunger as a problem for other countries, it’s important to recognize that there are millions in our own country who experience this problem. In fact, there are people within two miles of our campus who struggle...

SLU needs to give second chances

Marty Koravik

December 2, 2010

I’ve heard a lot of complaining and anger about the sexual assault case, but nobody seems to have their facts straight. It seems obvious to me that Saint Louis University did not find the two athletes guilty of sexual assault or else they would have been permanently suspended and with good reason. Also...

Dear SLU, your silence continues


November 18, 2010

SLU, something is still very wrong. Stop your ignorance of it already. You sit quietly, again, and do nothing while more details are given to us from the Riverfront Times about the alleged rape case. I am extremely disappointed in you, SLU. I am upset at your inability to trust us with the truth or...

Letter to the Editor: SLU needs to recognize the true victims and the true perpetrators

[email protected]

October 28, 2010

Like many of you, when I heard of the sexual assault last spring I was saddened, shocked, and deeply angered. But I have never been more disappointed by my peers at Saint Louis University then in the recent response to the two basketball players being taken off the team. We, as a community, are more...

Pro-choice voices on campus need to be heard

[email protected]

October 7, 2010

We at B*llikens for Choice would like to give credit to Students for Life for expanding the scope of Respect Life Week to include issues of euthanasia and the death penalty. However, there is still no space on campus for people to openly debate these issues. Students who have differing views on abortion...

Students need to actively seek advisers and participate in campus events

October 7, 2010

Editor’s Note: This is in response to the editorial “Billiken magic vanishes for currents students, leads to disenchantment” published in the Sept. 30 issue. I am writing this letter to express my disappointment in the members of our student body that do not take advantage of all of the progr...

SGA reaches out to students

[email protected]

September 30, 2010

Did you know that we are working on getting rental cars on campus for students? Do you know who your student senators are? Student Government Association’s purpose is to represent students, but we need you to meet us halfway. Or at least meet us in the Quad on Sept. 30 from 5 to 7 p.m. for some burgers...

A call to The University News

[email protected]

September 30, 2010

In the last edition of The University News, there were a handful of mistakes regarding the front-page article on SLU/FUSED. Most obviously, the article called the organization SLU-Fuse. The acronym for Saint Louis University for Undergraduate Socio-Economic Diversity is ‘SLU/FUSED.’ In addition,...
