I am writing this letter in response to the defamatory allegations made in a recent Letter to the Editor section entitled: “Disgusted by campaigns actions." I am a volunteer with the campaign and would like to share some actual facts in response to what was recently written.
Dear President Ross:
To The Editors--
I am disgusted by the “Adam Lawrence for Mid-Michigan” campaign.
The study by professors Chakraborty and Nash claims to show the benefits of so-called ‘right to work’ (RTW) legislation. There is, in fact, no proof that these laws have any economic benefits for states.
Being a student who wants to recycle while living in Union Square has been a bit of a challenge since I moved here in 2010.
The comments made by College Democrat president Alex Middlewood calling Herman Cain a “sexual predator” were extremely inappropriate.
Every CMU alum should be disquieted by the University's freshmen enrollment.
I’m tired of people saying they “need” bottled water.
Dear Faculty, Staff, Students and Alumni of Central Michigan University:
MSU is coming back to CMU soon, and CMU is determined to avenge their previous loss to the Spartans.
Most of my friends sat between the 10 and 20 yard lines for Central Michigan football games. That’s because we arrived to games late after chowing down on lunch before making the trek from Saxe Hall to the football stadium. The good seats were already taken by the time we showed our student ID at the gate.
Thanks, Central Michigan Life Editorial Board for your great editorial on Friday. We agree, the media should fact check political claims, and we also agree that too often, they merely report what they hear, as if “journalistic neutrality” required them to keep a straight face. In that climate, “truthiness” wins out over truth, manipulation over evidence, and emotion over reason.
To the incoming freshman ... beware.
Regarding last Monday’s article, "OIT takes the reins for launch of new website; student reaction varies with early launch," Roger Rehm is still spouting nonsense.
As the university celebrates its 120th anniversary, the students, faculty and staff of Central Michigan University should be both proud of, and grateful for, the decisions made by previous generations of Chippewas.
Many of you have seen, read or heard about Matt's story. I'd like to add a bit more. First of all, I'd like to thank those individuals who stayed and helped him after the fall. We were led to believe no one was with him; that everyone ran to avoid the police.
It’s funny that some claim to know what God wants.
You may have seen or read the article about me, "Student overcomes coma, near deadly fall," which was published in Central Michigan Life on Wednesday. Yes, it is spectacular the progress I have made, but I have one particular message I want to get across to all college students. The subject is about drinking.
Regarding Monday’s article “Delay in cmich.edu redesign will not cost CMU more than contracted $550,000,” there are a number of errors of fact.
“The delay in the Central Michigan University website redesign will not cost the university more than its contracted $550,000, Vice President for Information Technology Roger Rehm said last week.”
Roger lied; the delay has cost more than the contracted amount. Just because the work is being done by CMU staff instead of consultants, it doesn’t mean that it has no cost.
“Initially tabbed for an August launch, the project was delayed after the number of pages needed to be migrated bloomed above 50,000,” the story said.
The delay wasn’t caused by an increase in the number of pages that needed to be migrated. The incompetent running the project failed to learn the true scope of what was involved before the contract was signed. As it turned out, large numbers of pages that were to be migrated were actually not migrated, as Blue Chip wasn’t prepared to deal with dynamic pages. Much of the work that they were to do was dumped off onto various I.T. staff throughout the university, causing delays in other projects.
“One of the key aspects of relaunch will be Central Link, a new and improved version of the CMU Portal, where students will be able to access grades, Blackboard and email, among other options," the story said.
CentralLink may be new, but it’s far from an improved portal. It’s a terrible design in many ways. The most glaring deficiency is indicated by the training video that eats up much of the page. A portal that requires training to use is inherently flawed; it should be intuitive for anyone who has basic web browsing experience.
