Letters to the Editor

Letter to the editor | Get tough on unruly behavior

I agree with letter writer Glenn Myers (“No excuses or second chances,” CDT Wednesday).

After so many balcony and alcohol/drug accidents and deaths, Penn State students must be made more accountable for their actions. Certainly they are aware of the laws and consequences, but that doesn’t seem to be enough to deter them.

It is time for the university to get very tough. Expulsion and sending them home with no second chances may serve as a strong deterrent for alcohol-related parties.

My second concern is the number of females being assaulted who are on the streets at early morning hours. This has become a common happening among students. My sincere sympathies for the victims, however, where is common sense? Partying or drinking then being on the streets at 2 and 3 a.m. is only asking for disaster.

Perhaps Penn State students need to be reminded that their first priority is their education and that their poor choices can be disastrous and can follow them forever.
