The addition of new Integrative Studies in Arts & Humanities classes is long overdue at MSU.Undergraduate students are required to take two IAH courses unless they are enrolled in the Honors College, James Madison or placed out of the requirement.
This is in response to two letters that have been printed in The State News last week: Christ deserves day off like MLK (SN 1/22) and Christs beliefs not felt by all (SN 1/23). The first letter, by Eric Bjornstad, argued that our university should recognize Jesus Christ as a public servant in a way similar to the events that took place on Martin Luther King Jr.
In the Wednesday issue of The State News, a police brief stated a robbery suspect was a masked man and described him as Asian Pacific.

This letter is in response to Jeremy W. Steeles article Woman sexually attacked on campus (SN 1/23). In the article, there was a comment by the police: She was not injured. Why would the MSU police make such a statement if this woman was sexually assaulted?
