Dear Brenna Wu and Opinion Editor, Upon reading the article about school spirit, we found it very rude, disrespectful, and prejudice! We find it very truculent of you to question our motives for having school spirit. We have contempt for you though because it more than likely stems from a place of...

Upon driving through different parts of Indiana, I have started noticing yard signs that say 'Fed Up? Vote Republican!' appearing more and more in people's yards and along the road.

While I’m all for an opinion column in a newspaper (free speech and all that jazz), the article “Suppress your basic bitchness this Halloween” was appalling. I cannot, for the life of me, fathom why anyone on The Shield staff thought this was an acceptable addition to your paper . You’ve taken...

As I walked from the library to class today, I was accosted by multiple individuals attempting to get me to support their causes or listen to what each had to say. I did my best to ignore them all, finding such intrusions into my personal time and space time consuming and simply annoying.  However, thi...

We are not allowed to wear Greek lettered sashes when walking on graduation day at USI. I want to change that and don’t understand why it is such a bad thing. So please, can you tell me why this is such a problem and what we can do to change this injustice on our campus? Graduation is a very important day to ma...

Many Catholics traditionally vote Democrat.

There was a letter to the editor published on Sept. 6, 2012 that criticized USI President Linda Bennett for being, “… content to build her personal resume at the expense of real progress for USI, or she doesn’t qualify to lead this great university into the future.” As two active, involved st...
