Letter to the Editor Re: Mold in Residential Halls

March 1, 2018

Re: Mold in Residential Halls Dear Editor, After reading the recent article on mold concerns in Rollins-owned residential buildings, I was left with the feeling that the whole picture wasn’t being presented accurately. Some factual data was glossed over in the article, leaving unnecessary questions in the reader’s mind. Campus Safety is tasked with responding […]

In the early nineties, I was winging my way to Los Angeles while reading an airline flight magazine feature on Earl G. Graves, Publisher of Black Enterprise magazine. I was en route to meet with a number of automotive manufacturing C.E.O.s. I’d been warned that one of my ports of call would include an intentionally […]

While I question the wisdom of Professor O’Sullivan taking umbrage at the scheduling of a Summit on Race on St. Patrick’s Day, I can’t help but believe that he was […]

Letter to the Editor: Response to Budget Article

March 7, 2014

Dear Editor, The article on the update to the budget reductions was helpful in letting everyone know that the faculty is involved in the process.  However, because it lacks context (and did not seek to find out the context from any faculty member involved), it can be misleading, and judging from some of the responses […]
