Letters to the Editor

The Guardian welcomes letters from its readers. All letters must be addressed, and written, to the editor of the Guardian and sent to Letters are limited to 500 words, and all letters must include the writer’s name, college and year, department or city of residence. A maximum of three signatories per letter is permitted. The Guardian Editorial Board reserves the right to edit for length, accuracy, clarity and civility and reserves the right to reject letters for publication. Due to the volume of mail we receive, we do not confirm receipt or publication of a letter.

Lights Out

We’ve protested. We’ve hosted days of action. We’ve attended teach-ins. But when all is said and done, none of them have stopped ever-increasing budget cuts, which could hit UCSD in a big way next year, with the closure of CLICS. That’s right — we have sunk to such financial depths that UCSD, one of the country’s top research facilities, is closing a library.

UCSD Should Prioritize the Social Scene

Dear Editor,

I came from a pretty boring town in Northern California. My dream was to go to college in Southern California not just because of its reputation for perpetual warmth and a more attractive population, but because it’s portrayed as a party place.

Guardian’s Shooting Range Article Is onTarget

Dear Editor,

After throwing a bunch of dirty MQs off of a stack of Guardian newspapers, I looked on with joy at something I never imagined: an article about guns in the Guardian! Although I totally disagree with Iron Sights being a “wet dream,” I will admit that getting out to shoot some guns with friends is always fun.
