Military hair law is racially biased

Last week the Army published an update to Army Regulation 670-1, rules regulating how women can wear their hair when they are in uniform. While the rule change might simply been seen as a way for women soldiers to look even more professional, it clearly targets a specific group of women – non-white women.

Take dining comments seriously

In the Davenport dining hall during lunch and dinner time you will hear it. The occasionally unhappy student will moan and groan about how the food of Café Bon Appétit does not satisfy his or her hunger or taste buds. “Oh…this is gross, I can’t eat this,” one student said.

Many athletes involved in spring sports stay as do other students who live far away and cannot afford to fly home. Our spring break is only one week long, so why do the people left on campus have nowhere to eat? Both Barbs and Davenport are closed for the week,... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Kristine Delgadillo wrote a very nice article about the Hillcrest Good Samaritan Dinner on March 7, a wonderful yearly fundraiser. However, the dinner did not “save Hillcrest” (“Musical fundraiser saves Hillcrest,” March 14). Hillcrest is a remarkable retirement community and one I’m extremely proud to be associated with as a committee member and volunteer. The Good Samaritan...
