Writing center welcomes graduates

April 12, 2010

This letter is in response to the article published last week on March 30, 2010 entitled "Beware of the Undergraduate." What I believe the article was trying to say is that a well-qualified and well-trained tutor, no matter their station in life, can assist a graduate student with his/her writing. Wh...

Let’s support Romo

April 5, 2010

Replete with a tenuous grasp on the facts and the exorbitant demand for President Romo's resignation, Mr. Hensley's letter amounts to little more than misinformed opinion masquerading as fact. The letter cites the Federal Reserve's "Keynesian loose monetary policy" as the cause of three depressions...

Don’t be ignorant

April 5, 2010

As a member of Atheist Agenda, I'd like to say a few things to Gonzo Smothermon and a few others. First off, you claim as if Atheists believe or worship Satan. As an atheist I don't even believe in Satan, or hell for that matter. So the fire and brimstone method of trying to scare people into relig...

He said, she said offensive to students

November 23, 2009

To Whom It May Concern, My apologies for the late response in regards to the November 10th publishing of the Paisano. I wanted to wait until the next issue in order to send out my response and, as it seems, the sentiments towards a very sensitive subject did not change. When I first came across this arti...

Take a note from Japan,  ban smoking in public places

November 9, 2009

As I read Carly Haycraft's passionate plea in the November 3rd issue of the Paisano to ‘stop whining' about litter caused by smokers and to ‘walk around' the smokers, I am reminded that I shouldn't have to avoid smokers.  I would also like to remind Carly that smokers can extinguish t...

Non-smokers treated unfairly on campus

October 26, 2009

I have been bothered by the smokers since I started at UTSA. Especially the fact that they smoke in areas close to doors and walk ways where all the non-smokers have to pass through. It makes me sick! Outside the HHS building, where all the tables are, that's where all the smokers gather to pollut...

Writers don’t have it so bad

October 13, 2009

If you think it's hard to be an English major, imagine, how difficult it is to be a successful English major. I have no clue what your article was meant to deal with. First it was too hot, then although you're able to take criticism, you were not able to shrug it off. Secondly, was the mental imag...

Skaters have a right to ride

September 16, 2009

Skateboarding IS NOT A CRIME, and should not be classified as one. I am one of the many college students cruising around on a longboard (a longer version of a skateboard). I have never hit anyone, but I have nearly been hit several times by people who aren't paying attention to the pedestrians on ...

No offense, but Dillard-Collard sucks

September 7, 2009

Is your Dillard-Carroll review a joke?? I'm here at work reading The Paisano, and since I've got nothing else to do I figure I'll give this Dillard-Carroll guy a listen. After hearing "Animal" and "I feel like dancin" I thought I was listening to the "What what in my butt" guy. This is straight out ...

Skateboarders need to grow up

September 7, 2009

I think it should be a crime! I don't think that they should be allowed to use them on campus at all. It's a hazard! People who use skateboards are permanetely attached to them. They use them in crowded areas and can't keep from doing tricks on them. It's habit! They can damage property in the proc...

UTSA represented poorly at town hall meeting

August 30, 2009

Recently, various town hall meetings were held by the United States of America Congressional Representatives concerning the current president of the United States of America's "Health Care Reform." A few managed to present believable facts but the Congressman who represents the UTSA area failed miserab...

A fond farewell from our former SGA president

May 25, 2009

As my term as President has come to an end, I look back on the year and am so proud to have been a part of Student Government. This year Student Government accomplished so much for the organization and for the student body. SGA passed five resolutions and three by-law changes. The SGA senate helped wr...
