Lazy students must grow up

I read Vincent Massaro's Monday column, and it pretty much made me ashamed for my generation. How does a senior get off with never having a committed job or any real-life experience? I applaud his late but much-needed realization that he should grow up. However, I'm disgusted that anyone could be this lazy.

Complaints of bias undeserved

Shannyn Schott, an alumna who should have been labeled as such, should spend more time reading the Alligator and less time venting about "liberal bias." When did supporting school vouchers, limiting affirmative action and advocating for higher SAT and grade point average requirements (instead of need-based testing) for Bright Futures become causes célèbres among liberals?

While her friends were out having fun, she was doing walk-throughs on campus with the University Police Department.

Hopefully your exams are coming to a close and you can clear those textbooks off your bed so you can, you know, sleep on it. But for now, take a five-minute study break for this week's high-stress edition of…

Thanks for recognizing female athletes

The Alligator made a very real contribution to UF's sports culture with Tuesday's article "The Family Business." Although football has rightfully maintained its cherished position at the epicenter of Gainesville life, the city and the school can only benefit when any one of the cadre of talented female athletes who represent The Gator Nation at the track or in the pool or on the volleyball court, soccer pitch or softball diamond receives deserved and positive attention.

Gay? Fine by us.

Today would be a great day for you to reevaluate how you think about the people around you. What if you found out today that one of your friends were gay? What if your cousin told you he or she were transgender?
