Opinion

Editorial: The Reason for Hindering Higher Education: $4 Million
If you build it, they will come. And if you don't build it, they will come to Berkeley. In droves.

Driving While Brunette
Some people believe today's college student has grown up without the struggles of race.

Daily Cal Needs to Put Students First
We have always maintained that our accountability is to the students and not to The Daily Californian. It is unfortunate that the Daily Cal has decided to focus on sensationalist and politically petty stories, rather than policies and programs our offices have worked on that directly affect students. As we leave office we can only hope the next crop of Daily Cal writers takes time to learn and report on real issues rather than make baseless claims.

We Cannot Ignore Our Sister School
If Chancellor Berdahl thinks a group of students chanting in the Wheeler lobby is disrupting education, he should see what students at UC Berkeley's sister university go through.

Housing Plans Moving Ahead
New housing has been a top priority for the Chancellor and the campus. Already approved is $130 million for new construction of student housing at four separate sites, while planning proceeds for more. Since 1990 when the UC Board of Regents approved the Long Range Development Plan, the goal of housing for every matriculated freshman who desired it has been consistently met.

Letters to the Editor: Students Support Restoration of Senior Hall
I am writing you, the staff of The Daily Californian, as a student, a member of Pi Kappa Phi, and a former member of the Interfraternity Council Executive Committee, in support of making Senior Hall a gathering spot for all students of this university ("First Student Building to Be Renovated After Nearly 100 Years," May 3). ASUC really should be in support of maintaining and utilizing this historic fixture of the Cal campus for the entire student population. The rustic setting would be an ideal study lounge or meeting room and banquet hall for many organizations on campus that, unlike housed Greek letter organizations, don't have the facilities to hold such functions.
