I read your editorial about ASULV not doing their job as leaders at the university (“ASULV not providing leadership,” Sept. 21). May I say that you are sadly mistaken. Yes, I see that people might first think that ASULV and CAB are similar, but that is not the case. Being part of the Office of Student Life for the last two years, ASULV has provided more than, a free meal and a free t-shirt. Did you know that you can attend all ASULV’s meetings that are on Mondays at 3 p.m.?
Another problem with this article, is saying that they have non-existent office hours. Every member in ASULV are required to do office hours weekly, and some working past office hours as well. When you have less than 20 students who represent a whole student body, it is a lot of pressure. You might think that these students are not doing their job, but they are actually working hard. The last thing is the editorial cartoon for the article, that is completely false. There is more than five students from the Office of Student Life, both from ASULV and CAB, that are in the office at all times to help any student about flyer posting, getting involved, or starting a club. They are not here just sitting and eating pizza.

I am writing to you in response to your ASULV editorial, “ASULV not providing leadership.” It is not necessarily about the actual story but about the editorial cartoon which portrays CAB and ASULV as lazy people who just sit around and give out free food. Being a PR major I have worked for the Campus Times and seen how incredibly biased it tends to be towards Greeks and many other far more recognized groups on campus that have power. I was actually interviewed for this story and although the opinion piece states that CAB does what it is supposed to, the picture says otherwise. I think it is unfair because we work long and hard hours, much of this is behind the scenes and for very little pay and I felt disrespected and embarrassed that this came from people in my department. My main point here is that if you are going to write a strong opinion piece such as this one, the picture should at least reflect what is being said. Thank you.

For those of us in a certain generation, the events “A Raisin in the Sun” depicts are sad reminders of a period in U.S. history the holds tragic memories (“Family struggles brought to stage,” Sept. 21). Though I am glad the actors who gave life to the author’s words are not growing up in 1959 Chicago, I want to commend them on an absolutely first rate performance – you deserved that standing ovation and I hope you get more this weekend!
