Letters To The Editor


LETTER: In defense of Aramark

It is important to understand that there is a lot of misinformation and propaganda around Aramark and our service of food to the Corrections industry, as a result of a 2016 documentary and ongoing activism around the prison industrial complex.


​LETTER: Reclaim the 'Good Old Song'

A generation later, students have again taken to yelling out at the same moment in the song, with most directing a profane slur toward another in-state school.


​LETTER: Questions about Affordable Excellence

I see no problem in the rich paying more of the real cost of a University education, even if some of this payment is used to offset the fees for poor families of qualified students. But, please, show me some numbers and family situations so I can evaluate this new program.


LETTER: University students live on

We, the students of the University of Virginia, are the living. We are the blood that runs through the iron pipes of the University. We the picturesque, we the hideous, the marginalized, the spoiled, the idealistic, the good-hearted. We. When you walk through our Grounds, past each painful fissure that has blossomed forth like so many angry scars, remember.


​LETTER: Is there a "crisis" in higher education?

In the United States we should always correct the damage we do, whether in a car accident or a social and legal train wreck such as this. Lawsuits with very large damages awarded to the parties that have been damaged are in order. Clearly Rolling Stone is going to be the primary object of litigation. However, University administrators who often hide behind pious shields and the fact that they woe for a "public" institution must not be let off the hook — no catch and release for them.


LETTER: Sexual assault must end

As awareness continues to remain at an all-time high, we will continue to recommit ourselves to making this University a safer community. We know from supporting our loved ones and listening to our peers that sexual assault harms far too many members of our community.
