Letter to the Editor: Extra Library Security: The Manifestation of Fear

The Feb 24th issue of the Scout presented an article about how Bradley’s library will have some extra security measures. The reason given is that there are students who “have concerns about security in the library.” Nowhere in the article was there a mention of…

Sustainability needs to be managed one step at a time

The students of Bradley’s Sustainability Committee would like to respond to the sustainability editorial published in The Scout two weeks ago. The Sustainable Endowments Institute that evaluates the sustainability efforts of Bradley University is in the process of revising its grading policy. Consequently no university…

Letter to the Editor

A Letter to All Bradley Students: On behalf of each of our student-athletes and my coaching staff, thank you for your support, energy and passion at Throwback Night in Renaissance Coliseum.  Our 66-65 win against Southeast Missouri State was a memorable and magical night for…

Letter to the Editor: Progress of Student Senate is more than resolutions

There seems to be a common misconception by The Scout editorial board that the progress of Student Senate can only be measured in the number of resolutions passed. This is not the case. Three years ago, senate did not pass any resolutions, so passing any…

Letter to the Editor: Greek Night BU poses as a non-exclusive event

The Greek night BU was an event structured to allow the Bradley community to see what Greek life is all about. Some take a biased approach to the event; however, the event was open to all and permitted non-Greek members to socialize with Greek members.…

Letter to the Editor from Adam Bockler

I’ll admit it. I never saw any official word that the GCC labs would be making the change this year and only knew about the modifications through various faculty members. And I also didn’t know the desktop machines wouldn’t be replaced. But you can’t tell…

Letter to the Editor: Negative Attitude Towards Greek Community is Misled

It is clear that the Scout is extremely against Bradley University aiding the Greeks for fire safety, but it seems that there are some inaccurate preconceived notions.  Greek organizations are not giant parties.  They have membership fees, committee structures, budgets, fundraising, and service hours, just…
