Letter to the Editor: Support the Healy Pub

The vision of a University Center in Healy basement belongs to Sue Palmer Johnson, the Director of Student Activities in the early 1970s. I was fortunate to work with her, other administrators, and many fellow students in opening the Café in 1973 and the Pub in 1974. Since those beginnings, numerous friendships were made and fond memories are now shared by the many employees and patrons of the Café and Pub during its 14 year existence. However, the issue today is not about the past, but the future. There is an apparent need for student study and social space.

An Open Letter to Todd Olson, V. P. for Student Affairs

We are deeply troubled by the events of October 11 on campus. The way in which LGBT students and their supporters were treated on that day by the campus police is extremely discouraging, to say the least. For a peaceful student group to be prevented by a large number of police officers from entering the open spaces of the Healy building in order to deliver to the president’s office signatures to a widely shared campus petition is appalling.

October 10, 2007

I know some Georgetown graduates look down on Holy Cross (which does not say a lot to me about their character) but to refer to HC as “J.V. Georgetown” and then to call it a “regional school” [Sports Sermon, Sports, 10/4] (HC has always been considered a national liberal arts college in U.S. News and World Report and such organizations) is just a display of conceit and/or ignorance.

How Hoyas can change the party policy

By this point, every Georgetown student could probably extemporize a five to ten minute speech elaborating the new alcohol policies that have been put in place, and provide a detailed, well-reasoned argument as to why each of them sucks magnificently. What is not clear, however, is how the student body can engender any sort of change. While the ‘GU Students for Stopping the Madness’ Facebook group has some worthwhile events planned, I believe that the most assured way of getting the administration to change these policies is to hit them where it hurts the most … the wallet.

Voice website offensive

As a member of the Georgetown alumni, I wanted to comment that I find your website header of someone walking over the University seal offensive.

Voice needs more research on environmental rating

Will Sommer must be joking in his recent article slamming Georgetown’s new science building (“Building blues,” News, September 6). That the University would pursue a LEED rating is commendable on its own, and the fact that this building will be certfied LEED Silver makes the project all the more deserving of our support.

“If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”

It’s about time that someone put their foot down on the new alcohol policy on and off-campus here at Georgetown. The University and the Metropolitan Police Department don’t understand that the new ramped-up policies set in place to “protect” the students and neighbors are actually making everything worse.

Letters to the Editor

Rei should not have said what he said; it was insensitive and careless. But it is absurd to suggest that he poses any threat to the students at this school, and we hope he will return next year to a campus that welcomes him home.

Georgetown more diverse than Howard

The implication in the April 12 editorial that Howard University is a much more diverse campus than Georgetown is unfortunately not based in reality.

Stanton wrong about absinthe

I just read your piece, “Goes down easy,” (Leisure, March 29, 2007) about absinthe by Chris Stanton. Unfortunately very little of the information in it is at all accurate and appears to be gleaned from goth fan sites, not reliable sources.
