Letter: Brown should go test-optional

To the Editor: Thanks to Owen Colby for making such a compelling case for Brown to adopt test-optional admissions (“Colby ’20: It’s time for Brown to go test-optional,” Oct. 10). It is abundantly clear that Brown’s goal of increasing diversity and access would be strengthened by de-emphasizing ...

Letter: Pokanoket land

To the Editor: As a Brown University graduate, I am appealing to President Christina Paxson P’19 and Brown’s leadership/administration to return the 375 acres they currently “own” in Bristol to the Pokanoket tribe. (This land was donated to Brown by the Haffenreffer family in the 1950s, according ...

Letter: Save the Indy and other Brown print media

To the Editor: We write as former College Hill Independent editors and contributors. We were dismayed to learn about looming cuts to the Indy and other campus publications, which could force many outlets to end their printed editions altogether.

Letter: Printed publications empower students

To the Editor: I’m greatly disturbed that the Undergraduate Finance Board has chosen not to provide funding to cover printing expenses for student groups that release paper publications. Such an announcement reveals an ignorance in UFB about the power of paper and the importance of creating a diverse ...

Letter: No reintegration for campus rapists

To the Editor: I was heartened to read about the number of resources the University has made available for victims of sexual assault in the April 12 article “Brown weighs reintegration options for sexual assaulters.” However, I was just as alarmed to read about the concept of “restorative justice” ...

Letter: Recent editorial too defensive

To the Editor: As an alum of The Brown Daily Herald who went on to a career in journalism, I think your March 21 editorial,  “Toward a better Herald,” is too defensive. As long as The Herald keeps reporting honestly on campus news, The Herald shouldn’t feel the need to prove to anyone that its ...

Letter: ‘Go Bruno’ editorial was timely, but fell short

Letter: You get what you pay for

To the Editor: Monday’s editorial on Brown sports underscores Bruno’s plight since beginning intercollegiate athletic competition in 1859 with a crew race against Harvard and Yale.

Letter: John Savage — A true educator

To the Editor: I particularly enjoyed your profile of Professor of Computer Science John Savage in the Feb. 28 issue. Of the 30 or so professors I was lucky to have at Brown, he stands apart for his dedication to students. John embodies the best of Brown’s undergraduate focus. When he first offered ...

Letter: “International”: An artificial race

To the Editor: The problems that Aliosha Bielenberg ’20 addressed in his op-ed are absolutely essential. However, “International” is a race. It is an artificial race created by and for the American federal government to legally persecute, oppress and discriminate against the foreign population. ...
