Received Oct. 18, 2011. Dear Editor, last week Student Government received notice that a proposed amendment to the FAU's regulation on Anti-Discrimination and Anti-Harrassment is set to be considered by the University Board of Trustees.

From Natasha Michelle Greene  Monday, Oct. 3, 2011 Dear Monica Ruiz, I have took the time to read your article The Girl Who Cried Wolf...or Rape! I think it was a very much needed topic of discussion in today's society. Although many people are not open about the issue of rape, discussing it seems to help provide a feeling of secur...

From Stephanie Alvarez Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2011 To whom it may concern: I wanted to call to your attention that I feel this article should not have been published.

From Sarah Jenkins, William Rickards and Megan Tomei Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2011 Dear Editor, I am emailing you regarding the recent article in the UP entitled “The Girl Who Cried Wolf...Or Rape.” This article is insensitive to the experience of rape, trivializing it and contributing to a cultural bias that blames sexual assault on victims.  In...

October 3, 2011

From Meridith Wailes Sunday, Sept. 25, 2011 The recent blurb, “The girl who cried wolf...rape” is completely inappropriate. Rape is a huge problem on college campuses, and often goes unreported because women are afraid that they will be judged, as you are doing. Even if it is reported, there are often no consequences for the rapist. In writi...

September 19, 2011

Dear Editor, Tuition, books, housing, loans. College students all around have to deal with these issues on an almost daily basis each semester. And throw on top of that more priorities such as having a job, paying for car insurance and more. It's not surprising therefore that many of our peers don't have the time or money or care to worry about Health...
