Disheartened by CMU's reaction to deaf student
I wanted to express my appreciation to Central Michigan Life for recently featuring the article about oppression and discrimination against Kelly Laatsch, a Deaf elementary education senior.
I learned about this situation a few months ago and as an alumna of the class of 1997, I cannot express enough my disappointment in my alma mater.
Monday night was not a good evening for senators, or for their legislation.
After exiting a general board meeting that lasted just over an hour, senators rushed to their meeting room and readied themselves for the tense debate that was about to come for a controversial piece of legislation that had been postponed from the previous meeting: the “Recognition of the Take Back The Tap” bill.
Since I started my role as senator last fall semester, I knew how hard it was for controversial bills like these to pass in the senate.
The past month has pushed major social issues such as abortion and contraceptives to the forefront of political debate.
Two weeks ago, President Barack Obama presented a “compromise” to the Catholic Church in regard to the HHS mandate for all insurance plans to pay for contraceptives.
The compromise is laughable; merely an accounting gimmick.
Under the “new” plan, Catholic schools, hospitals and charities will still be forced to purchase insurance plans that cover contraceptives.
HHS’s mandate covers all FDA-approved contraceptives, including morning after pills and sterilization.
Central Michigan University cannot possibly afford to pay its faculty a wage increase.
Times are rough.
Recently, Michigan State University announced that if students do not have health insurance coverage on their own, they will be required to enroll in a MSU plan at a cost of nearly $1,500 for the year.
I want to thank Emily Grove for her piece on the birth control debate.
As the President of VOX: Voices for Planned Parenthood on campus I have seen countless women unable to afford their birth control every month because their insurance did not cover their co-pays, some paying between $30 to $60 a month.
I was one of these women once too, and I think that preventative health care is a right that every woman deserves.
In 2008, America elected an unaccomplished orator who disingenuously campaigned on platitudes of “Hope & Change” and “Yes We Can.”
Today we see the once dubbed “great unifier” has predictably discarded that manufactured image.
We like to joke about Michigan only having two seasons, winter and construction, but if you drive often you know that our roads are in bad shape.
Over time this erosion of city streets and freeways causes wear and tear on vehicles that ends up costing drivers a lot of money.
We joke about the orange barrels, but the truth is, we need to invest in fixing our roads, and we need to invest in putting Michigan’s construction workers back on the job.
Central Michigan Life should be ashamed of its Wednesday "Bucket List." Prospective students and their parents will be pleased to know that CMU is a place where immoral and illegal activities are encouraged by the student media.
A place where every student should No.
I have been following with great interest the progress being made by Central Michigan University in establishing the College of Medicine.
History has shown that in collegiate basketball it isn’t uncommon for underclassman to not only contribute, but help lead the team.
Nor, is it peculiar to see small schools qualify for the national tournament and gain national media exposure valuable to both the school’s overall notoriety and vital for players who aspire to play in the big city lights of the NBA.
The performance that was on display last Wednesday was simply unacceptable for a team that still has the potential to put Central Michigan University sports on the national stage, a stage we
miss, a stage where CMU can, and needs to be.

I am writing in regards to how Central Michigan University handles the removal of ice and snow on campus.
After five years attending CMU, the removal of ice and snow continues to remain an issue on campus.
Dear Madams and Sirs:
I am writing as a student to express my grave concern over Central Michigan University’s future.
As the provider of transportation services to Central Michigan University, the off-campus apartment complexes, as well as the greater Mount Pleasant area and the Isabella County Transportation Commission, I-Ride shuttle services provide more than a quarter of a million rides annually to and from the CMU campus.
The department of foreign languages, literatures and cultures strongly supports Central Michigan University’s mission statement encouraging the pursuit of knowledge and wisdom as well as preparing students for responsible citizenship in a global society.
For this reason, while we realize that Associate Professor of Journalism Timothy Boudreau had the right to bring controversial Rev.
We’ve all read about the $550,000 being spent on the new Web-design, but what about more relevant information such as policies regarding guest speakers on campus?
A brief history of the College of Medicine (and what it has taught us):
September 2008 – The CMU Board of Trustees approves CMED.
To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world. Isn’t this the message that we want our kids to live by?
On Monday night, I attended an SGA meeting that featured Central Michigan University President George Ross.
If there were ever any doubt about campus frustration over the disregard for shared governance by this Central Michigan University administration, the overwhelming Academic Senate vote on Nov.
