Online textbooks aid students in the end

September 9, 2009

Editor:The Utah Student Association was recently criticized in Liz Carlston's column for its "short-term" ideas on combating the excessive prices of textbooks ("Online textbooks hurt students in the end," Sept. 3). While it is one thing to pursue a short-term end, it is quite another to make an anachron...

Racism at the U is shameful

September 9, 2009

Editor:I'm proud to be an alumnus of the U8212;except when I'm ashamed.

U events hinder student parking

August 27, 2009

Editor:As a student, I have become increasingly irritated at the noticeable disregard for students. Unless I am mistaken, the U is an institute of higher learning, not an entertainment venue, so why is it trying to function as such?

Illegal immigration wrong in every way

April 28, 2009
