April 13, 2011

Dear Editor, Recently two communications made clear that CSUN is indeed much like the California political culture that we belittle. Students circulated an initiative to bring back football, and an essay in this paper demanded that Jolene Koester be ousted unless she demands emergency funding from...

Letter to the Editor: Help for stutterers

Contributor

March 27, 2011

Dear editor, I enjoyed your article “CSUN program helps students, community reduce stuttering.” Some points made in the article were right on target. For instance, the article stated that boys are more likely to stutter than girls. This statement is definitely true, as over the years, I have read...

By Todd Thornton CSUN Alumnus Journalism ’92 Dear editor, CSUN Men’s Basketball coach Bobby Braswell deserves thanks from the Northridge community for guiding the Matadors to two spots in the NCAA tournament during his 15 year career.  On balance, however, Braswell’s career .500 record, coupled...

An open letter to CSUN’s March 2 protesters

Contributor

March 10, 2011

By Oswaldo Sergio Sanchez I agree with your message, but not with your method. We should protest fee hikes, but protest in ways that do not interfere with our ability to have normal classes. In other words, stop the walkouts and find new ways to protest. It seems that everyone, not just college...

Dear editor, The CSUN chapter of the CFA was surprised by your recent article on the March 2, 2011 student march on campus and its mischaracterization of our organization. We wish to tell another side of the story – one where the faculty at CSUN supported the students; a story where the students...

Lucia Strojnik is a 21-year-old senior in communications. As a nature enthusiast and environmental activist, I disagree with the author’s claims that these trees need to be removed.

The longer a student will stay at CSUN, the more she will pay. Here is why. California is a state in denial. We are forever blowing financial bubbles; we indulge short-term speculation and forego long-term investment. We borrow beyond our means, betting on suckers to buy our follies. Then when bubbles...

The recent tragic death of a high school cross-country runner in Sherman Oaks is a reminder that running can be risky on city streets.  But runners have few options, even at a school with a track like CSUN. The CSUN track cannot be used by its students, only its student athletes.  One morning, the...

It seems that in the U.S. today we are not simply facing a deficiency in capital, but also a scarcity of original thought. It is no wonder with the myriad of pseudo-authorities, that people don’t take the time to do their research and form an opinion for themselves. “Starve the Beast” is by no...

Editor, I want to report a crime. It was a crime when the CSUN Symphony Orchestra performed Friday (Oct. 1) and the Performance Hall was just slightly more than half full. Our symphony orchestra is spectacular. It would be hard to hear better music anywhere in Los Angeles, and I include Downtown. This...
