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, 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

opinions

August 18, 2011


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...

Regarding freedom of speech on campuses

April 13, 2011


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...

March 16, 2011


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...

In response to Alex Moreschi’s “In protest of the prodigal statue”

opinions

February 8, 2011


Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinions

We pay a tuition fee and in turn we get a service. I’m afraid the argument against the bear statue ends at the fact that it did not come from tuition funds, but I’ll supplement my statement anyway. First: How can you possibly argue that someone—or a university, in this case—must use extra fun...

Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinions

As director of  Mercer University’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), I feel it is imperative to the Mercer community that I respond to Clarissa Price’s  editorial “Pregnancy Resources on Mercer’s Campus in Need of Expansion” in the Jan. 27 edition of the Cluster. The informatio...

Erroneous weather alert misleading

January 30, 2011


Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinions

At Mercer, our classes follow a consistent weekly schedule with which we're all familiar: On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, our lectures begin at the top of the hour, and on Tuesdays and Thursdays they begin at less obvious but still widely known times such as 9:25, 10:50 and 12:15. That's why it...
