After a thorough investigation, the University Police Department has forwarded sworn allegations to the State Attorney that nine UF students and one alumnus engaged in very serious hazing.
The highly critical responses to a recent letter written by the Student Body president are extremely biased and one-sided.
Reading Student Body President Anthony Reynold's most recent explanation for why the student representative to the Board of Governors should be appointed by the governor and not elected by students was confusing at best and enraging at worst.
In a letter to the editor published yesterday, SG presidential candidate Alex Cornillie seriously misled readers in his diatribe against my stance on Florida House Joint Resolution 931 and Florida Senate Joint Resolution 1508.
If more than 200 civilians are slaughtered in a systematic manner within a 3-hour window and their deaths don't receive appropriate media coverage, does the loss of life make any difference in the world?
I was highly offended by the picture in the Alligator today of the young man arrested for theft. I would appreciate photos to be more informative and less sensational. To publish a picture of a suspect in the middle of a strip search before he's even been proven guilty is in very bad taste. It didn't add anything to the story and violated this 17-year-old's privacy.
I applaud the underlying premise of Austin Swink's column regarding STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) majors. There is a need to encourage students to pursue these fields because they provide a large part of the foundation upon which our economy and society rest. However, his proposal that raising the tuition for these students will increase the number of graduates with these degrees is wholly false.
This is a letter in response to Luke Bailey's column regarding the Shire as an ideal economic model. Being a Brit and a Tolkien nut myself, I thought I would provide you with a couple of insights that you appeared to be lacking based on your article.
Last Tuesday, the Unite Party engaged in some of the most disgusting, blatantly corrupt behavior I have seen in my time in Senate.
In response to the editorial addressing interior design licensing, the students of UF's Department of Interior Design would like to have the opportunity to respond to the many misconceptions about the profession put forth.
This letter is in response to Adrianna Paidas' article about the requirement for police clearance imposed on the poor and homeless to be allowed to use services at St. Francis House homeless shelter and dining hall. This requirement was imposed at the same time the 130 meal limit ordinance was enacted, but the police clearance requirement was not enforced until the meal limit was lifted. For two and a half years, they were forced to turn away thousands of hungry people.
I am very disappointed to read the misinformed article regarding interior design. As someone who works for Shands in the facilities development department I can attest to the importance of an educated and licensed interior designer for commercial designs. The licensing laws have nothing to do with residential design; please check the facts before publishing.
