Letter to the Editor: Morgan Edwards-Fligner

To the Editor,   I’d like to address The Lawrentian’s editorial from this past issue. Although I agree with some of the opinions discussed, others seemed to be poorly informed. I agree that the initial rejection of the Anchor Loft application seemed unjustified, and that this year’s process should have been more transparent. With regards

Letter to the Editor: Clee McCracken

To the Editor,   Today, I am thinking about time, specifically time wasted thinking about rapists at Lawrence University the administration did nothing to stop.  This morning, I wasted three hours.

To the Editor, I read your recent editorial encouraging Lawrence students to get involved in local government with great interest. Your reasoning that students can make a huge impact if they choose to get active is exactly right. What is more, the City of Appleton will only become a better home for Lawrence students if

To the Editor,   This older alumnus salutes the “racism-protesters.” But less for seeking “social justice,” than for advancing Lawrence’s “liberal-arts/general education” itself! Who knew? The academic disciplines of my earlier times were flawed and macro-oppressive. You have refreshed them. Our sociology warned that social movements can be runaway, wherein a puppet-master makes us dance

To the Editor,   This past Monday, Lawrence University Community Council (LUCC) President Wesley Varughese reported to General Council that by the Saturday deadline, only three candidates had submitted paperwork to run for the upcoming executive elections—one for president and two for vice president. Varughese then successfully proposed to the council that it vote on
