Dear Editor, Students of Mercer have been in uproar about the recent SGA article written by Gene Mitchell. It seems that even the SGA board themselves have felt appalled at the accusations Mitchell writes about. Mitchell’s article had quite a few arguments break out in the comments on the Cluster...

Dear Editor, I received a copy of The Cluster, and I wanted to thank you. I was very impressed with the quality of your paper and the articles therein.

Dear Editor, To the community of Macon and Mercer University, I would be amiss if I did not take the time to write to commend your women’s basketball team. I was doing volunteer service at the men’s homeless shelter in High Point, NC. Lo and behold your women showed up to serve these men and the...

Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinions

Dear Editor, As a self-proclaimed “Princess Obsessed Princess” and the director of a Princess/girl power themed summer show, I was immediately drawn to the article entitled “Disney Princess Culture Harmful to Young Girls.” This is not an idea I am unfamiliar with, but one I will always disagree...

New SIS system frustrates Mercer students

Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinions

The summer months frustrated countless Mercer students. As of August 14, the school has yet to notify many students of this semester’s cost. It’s not comforting to move back into expensive dorms and houses while financially blind. Study-abroad students bought their $1,000+ plane tickets without knowing...

Okay, nerds. I’ve spent all our time together telling you what not to like, but now that it’s all coming to an end, I’m going to tell you what to like. Some of the greatest television shows are cancelled because not enough people watch them, which is really upsetting but unsurprising since we live ...

Regarding freedom of speech on campuses

Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinions

Dear editors, I was disturbed by the report in the March 31, 2011 issue of The Cluster that a university official poured water on two chalkings by Mercer students about abortion: one that pictured a crossed-out coat hanger with the words “Mercerians against wire hangers” and another that said “College...

Please, no more 3D movies

Please, no more 3D movies

  Is it entirely necessary for almost every film to be filmed in 3-D? Sure, I understand how 3-D is cool and sometimes it can add to the film. But it’s just ridiculous how films are filmed in both 3-D and 2-D now, or hastily reformatted to be 3-D right before the release date. Filming in both formats makes the entire proce...

Why would anyone want to keep up with the Kardashians? Seriously. I’ve been very fortunate in that I’ve only seen clips from the horrendous E! production (can it even be called that?) on “The Soup” because I don’t like to waste my time with bad TV. If you watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians, I’m just going to assume your remote is los...

No more vampires, okay?

I don’t understand this whole vampire fad. Why won’t it go away? Can someone stake it? Sure, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” was awesome. But it was awesome because she was killing vampires. Nowadays, vampires are supposed to be sexy or something. No, people who want to rip your throat out are not...

On Ms. Wiley's response concerning resources available on campus to women in crisis pregnancies

March 16
Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinions

Dear editors, Mary Kathryn Wiley’s response to Clarissa Ashley Price’s article on the limited resources available on campus to women in crisis pregnancies calls for some clarification. While Ms. Wiley is an excellent writer (I’ve enjoyed reading her papers in more than one of my classes!), I’ve...
