Re: "U of C students get million dollar tuition break,"
The Calgary Herald, Mar. 27, 1999,

As a U of C (ash) student who stood in the cold for over five hours on Friday morning to protest 10 years of maximum tuition hikes, I was appalled by the way our protest and its outcome were portrayed in the media. I could not believe my eyes when I looked at The Herald to see the headline, "U of C students get million dollar tuition break." This headline was blatantly misleading.

Editors, the Gauntlet,

I want my Students' Union dues back.

I was disgusted last week at the unprofessional tuition awareness campaign of misinformation run by the SU. I am disappointed in our SU and ashamed to be a member of it.

Intellectual thought is the crowning glory of evolution. The level of self-awareness we, the human species, have achieved fascinates me beyond belief. No longer do we scrounge in the dirt, bite the heads off little animals and defecate wherever we want. We think rationally about numerous topics never before contemplated.

Dear Elouise,

Greetings from the prairies! I know it has only been a couple of weeks since you left, but I really wanted to write. How are you? How's life back in Toronto? I'm so glad you had a good time visiting here over Christmas. I'm happy to have a nice friend like you.

Terry White and the Board of Governors have been taking a lot of flak lately, and perhaps it is not undeserved. Tuition rises while many students struggle to go to school and carry on gratuitous habits such as eating and sleeping indoors. All the while, White's infamy grows in proportion to his salary. Recent demonstrations serve only to underscore the ire with which the student body views him.
