LETTER TO THE EDITOR | More positive stories would benefit the Collegian

Kudos… kind of.

For the first time in my four years of being at Butler, I have finally been given the opportunity to read a fun, refreshing, non-opinionated, interesting story.

“The men behind the Butler blooms” was a great story.

I am not getting my hopes up or anything, but maybe more students would read The Collegian if more positive stories were published.

Highlight how beautiful our campus is by telling the stories of the people who work behind the scenes to make the university what it is.

The organizations, faculty and staff could be focused on more.

There are so many opportunities to publish unique stories about the people who make this campus.

There is already too much negativity in the world.

I am willing to bet that the majority of campus would rather read about a hard-working, involved, difference-making student or staff member than a certain Greek house violating a law, another half page on the worn-out parking/housing issue, or my personal favorite—an article about something on campus that turns into an opinion piece and is not in the opinion section.

Less opinionated, more positive articles focusing on how exceptional our campus is would get you a few less jeers and more cheers.
