Sig Ep brother requests Williams consider statements

This is sort of out of place for me, normally focusing on sports for this publication. But being a brother at the Sigma Phi Epsilon house here at UNH, Whitney Williams' column on Friday, entitled "Rape and Other Amusing Trifles," upset me to no end and I felt that I had to say something.

 

TKE brother calls for apology from Chesney

Recently I read an article entitled, "UNH frats told to shape up or ship out", from "Foster's Daily Democrat" online edition. I am a graduated member of the Greek system, and was very disturbed to see UNH Director of Residential Life Scott Chesney's comments about the Greek system continue to hold true.

TNH news rack vandalism uncalled for

Today I arrived at work to find a piece of The New Hampshire's property vandalized. The large newspaper distribution rack which also doubles as a movie poster display stationed outside and opposite TNH's office door had been defaced with a red marker. On the clear Plexiglas cover were the words: UNH supports rape culture.

 

Williams applauded for making bold statement

I am writing in support of the "Do Take Note" column in last Friday's TNH. I agree that the actions of the fraternity brothers that are mentioned, such as ogling at freshmen women, drawing demeaning and sexual symbols on a sleeping woman, and at the worst, rape, are disgusting and in no way acceptable.

Take responsibility for your safety

When I read the Sept. 17th story of the Feminist Action League disrupting President Hart at the Convocation, the first thing I thought was, 'spoiled children.'

The second thing I thought was, 'spoiled children who have attached themselves to a cause.' They claim that a woman is raped every three minutes, and the University isn't doing enough to stop it.

 

Week in Greek

Chi Omega-
The end of September has certainly come quickly, but the sisters of Chi Omega are looking forward to October and several philanthropies that are being planned. The sisters had a treat this week when the UNH Gents came to the house to perform. We thoroughly enjoyed their singing and getting to know them.

Williams encouraged to take action

I don't know about the rest of the readers of this newspaper, but I've about had it with Whitney Williams' column "Do Take Note." Why are we wasting the students' money by allowing her the space to be printed once a week? Why do we support a student who bashes a certain minority group on this campus? Isn't that discrimination? Correct me if you want, but isn't discrimination wrong?

 

Treat all people equally reguardless of race or gender

I am writing in support of the "Do Take Note" column in last Friday's TNH. I agree that the actions of the fraternity brothers that are mentioned, such as ogling at freshmen women, drawing demeaning and sexual symbols on a sleeping woman, and at the worst, rape, are disgusting and in no way acceptable.

Support Our Troops: Bring Them Home

On Sept. 17th, The New Hampshire printed a letter from sophomore Michael Owens. He's currently stationed in Iraq, risking his life for a cause he believes in. And I admire him for it. I don't agree with his politics, but I affirm the sacrifice he's willing to make for what he believes in. To Michael, the war in Iraq makes America safer "because we took the fight to them." And further, he believes that American forces are "giving freedom to those who cannot free themselves."
