Letter from the Opinion Editor: We encourage community commentary

Dear Tufts, The news published in the Tufts Daily impacts all of us and cries out for active conversation. The recent investigative report on Saudi involvement with this institution is shocking. Commentary about legacy admissions prompts questions about the future of our university. A compelling and beautiful review of Lana Del Rey’s “Norman Fucking Rockwell” […]

Letter to the Editor in Response to ‘Why Tufts needs to reorganize custodial services’ op-ed by Tufts Administration

Pretending that a top-tier university with an operating budget of nearly $800 million and a healthy endowment of over $1.6 billion has no other option but to cut the jobs of low-pay janitors just to stay financially afloat is not only wrong, but a contradiction for an institution that prides itself on being “committed to improving the […]

Letter to the Editor

The current TCU Constitution states that any candidate for president must be a current member of senate. While this is true, anyone interested in running for TCU President can run for senate the week before the presidential elections begin in order to be eligible for the presidency. So long as they are elected to senate […]

Leftism is the dangerous precedent

Editor’s note: This letter is in response to a Tufts Daily Editorial published on April 7th, 2015 entitled “‘Feticide’ case sets dangerous precedent” I comment with respect on a difficult and complex, but very important topic. Whatever your ideas are on the appropriate definition of marriage, this Indiana issue is not about that. It’s about […]

Letter to the Editor regarding El Tit op-ed

On behalf of the TCU Judiciary (TCUJ), I would like to respond to Madeline Bacchus’ March 2 op-ed “El Tit fills the gap other publications can’t.” In determining the recognition status of new and existing groups on campus, the TCUJ relies on a stringent set of bylaws that require, among other criteria, three proofs of […]

Letter to the Editor: In response to Miranda Willson’s ‘Politics, pollution and “over-population”‘

I would first like to address Miranda Willson’s closing statement “…we need to change the way we talk about population control as an ‘environmental’ effort, when it has nothing to do with the environment…” In response to this statement, I would encourage interested readers to look into the InterAcademy Panel, a global network of 107 […]

Letter to the Editor: remembering the Chapel Hill victims

I read Shaan Shaikh’s article on Tuesday, February 17th 2015 entitled “Remembering the Chapel Hill victims” with a mixed reaction. Although I applaud the author’s points about taking action to aid Syrian refugees, volunteering at soup kitchens, and proactively working to better the image of Islam, I nevertheless found his remarks on the New Atheist […]

Letter to the Editor

I would like to make some very important corrections regarding the article that was published about the uncertain future of TuftsLife in last Thursday’s Daily. When I was first contacted by the story’s author for information about the story, I responded with an email containing background information about who might be the best person with […]

Letter to the Editor

To the Editor: We were extremely disappointed to read the large number of errors, inaccuracies and misrepresentations in an article characterizing Tufts Medical Center’s relationship with the Chinatown community (“Boston Chinatown’s gentrification linked historically to Tufts Medical Center’s expansion,” published Dec. 3, 2014). The article presents outdated information as if it was current, confuses actions […]

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I leave this message because I want to indicate the words ‘including guns’ you used in the features article “Tufts students react to Hong Kong protests” are inappropriate. What the police used was tear gas, a legal weapon in dispersing demonstrators, but not guns, which may cause misunderstanding. What’s more, in my opinion, […]
