I’ve always wanted to change the world, and I thought that coming to Baylor would give me the right tools to go out and make a big impact. I’m a communications major, so I’m not going to cure any diseases over the course of my career, but I thought maybe I could make enough money to make a significant donation to help find a cure, or save up enough money to open up an orphanage in another country.
It is baseball season at Baylor.
Baylor baseball has had a winning season every year since 2005, but they still have games to go in this one. They need our help.
This is a letter to certain people who attended the West memorial service last Thursday.
It was an event to honor the 12 fallen first responders in the West explosion.
These men, who were volunteers, most of whom had wives and children, laid their lives down for their neighbors that fateful Wednesday night two weeks ago. They paid the ultimate price. Seeing those 12 coffins lined up at the foot of the stage with the families gathered by, and countless firefighters, the members of the West, Waco and Baylor community all coming together to honor these men filled me with indescribable heartache and pride all at once.
I am writing to comment on “Comprehensive finals get an F for effectiveness”, published April 4.
With my personal experience as a junior in college, as well as a transfer student, I feel that the issue at hand with regards to the comprehensive final should begin with the first quiz at the beginning of the semester.
On Monday, the word got out fast that President Obama was speaking at Baylor University’s West memorial service.
As I attended class on Tuesday I heard more talk about his arrival.
Congratulations for your sensitive and comprehensive coverage of the tragedy in West that has affected us all so profoundly.
Realizing that this breaking news appropriately pre-empted stories that were scheduled, I still question decisions made about what to run and what to cut. Unfortunately, these reflect institutional values and merit some serious questions.
I’m writing in response to a viewpoint column “Gun laws ridiculous; Texas should secede” that was published on April 12. In the column, the author presented a sarcastic case for gun control and Texas succession.
I am writing in response to your April 11 editorial “Hypocrisy of PETA Gets Our Goat.” We’re grateful for the opportunity that this editorial—despite its deceptive intent—gives us to discuss the animal-overpopulation crisis. We’re on the front lines in the battle to help unwanted dogs and cats, and we need your readers’ help.
I fully agree with Coach Kim Mulkey’s assessment of the Louisville “assault” game on March 31. I said they literally “clawed” their way to the championship game, where they got what they deserved: a 33-point loss.
A common problem I’m seeing on campus is overworked, overstressed, sleep-deprived students who are too busy with schoolwork to fully enjoy their college experience. I have had multiple friends say “I live for the weekends,” but this isn’t how it should be.
