    St. Mary's College challenges and educates young minds
    I am writing in response to Anne Neal's misinformed article criticizing St. Mary's College of Maryland ("Campus cautionary tale," May 30). Rather than basing her judgment of St. Mary's College on biased reports that no one else seems to have heard of...

    Sherlock Holmes un-kicked the bucket way back in 1894. More than a century later, even though Harry Potter ends up on the wrong side of a killing curse, he un-bites the dust. In "Game of Thrones," Beric Dondarrion has un-bought the farm at least six...
  • The value of a St. Mary's education

    The value of a St. Mary's education
    This letter is in response to Anne Neal's recent commentary, "Cautionary campus tale," (May 30). As a 2008 St. Mary's alumna, I, like many of my fellow alumni, took great umbrage to the broad strokes Ms. Neal attempts to use in painting our alma mater...

  • Commentary: This is Halloween

    While some of my colleagues here at The Aegis may argue about its merits (one editor in particular that I won't name, but he knows who he is), I love Halloween. The whole time of year is pretty magical, if you think about it. Leaves are changing colors,...
