Positive portrayals of black men needed, too
I would like to commend U. Magazine's article on
Queen Latifah by Rob Hooper [January/February
1994]. It is rare that one sees such an insightful and
humanizing portrayal of an African-Amertcan woman to
a nationally published magazine. While that was
refreshing, it would also be refreshing to see a humaniz-
ing portrayal of an African-American man in your mag-
azine every once in a while.
This is not a matter of political correctness, but
rather a matter of equity. Amiri Kudura Barksdale,
sophomore, Dartmouth College 4
Get off your cyberhorse
I am writing to address a letter to the editor written
by John Patrick in the January/February issue of U.
Magazine. I am a fellow cyberenthusiast who "jumped
on the bandwagon" a little over a year ago. I wonder,
am I "old" enough in cyberyears to share your precious
domain? Your attitude, Mr. Patrick, is elitist and annoy-
tog. I look forward to an increase in users of this elec-
tro-reality. As user load increases, the demand for faster
processors will be met
Cyberspace is going to grow until everyone has
access, whether you like it or not. Joshua Bradshaw,
sophomore, Wichita State U. 'je
A worthwhile spring break
It's so refreshing to see that there are some college
students who will devote their spring break time to
something other than booze, parties and the beach
["Giving Others A Break," January/February 1994]; who
want to take the time to give to someone less fortunate
and maybe learn something valuable in return. This arti-
cle brought the necessity for volunteers to my attention
and showed that one person really can make a differ-
ence! Krista A. Coyne, junior, Indiana U. of Pa.4 .

Give us a break
Your stories about spring break only give the impres-
sion that all college students want to do is get a tan,
spend money, get laid and drink alcohol to excess. I do
know that you did spend half a page on volunteering
over spring break, but it was overshadowed by the
remaining two and a half pages on a "typical" spring
break. Why don't you treat college students as some-
thing other than overgrown kids? Julie Harty, gradu-
ate, U. of Oklahoma 4}
How dare you print in your rag that students seeking
a low budget spring break stay in homeless shelters
["How To Break Broke"]. To suggest that party-seek-
ing breakers save money by leeching onto a shelter is no
laughing matter. It may be possible that Mr. Kaiser is
unfamiliar with the plight of the homeless, but this is
not an excuse. The majority of homeless shelters are
strapped as it is. If the only option one has in ensuring
their vacation is to take the food from those without,
maybe no home is the best place for you. George L.
Fillar, senior, Wayne State U.
Political story makes the grade
I was very informed about the political parties pre-
sented in your story, "Who Makes the Grade?" I thank
you for doing what so many journalists think comes last,
informing the public. The parties presented were very
interesting and I now have some ideas of what is avail-
able for me in the political spectrum.
Again, thank you and continue the solid reporting.
Joee Medina, freshman, New Mexico State U. 4
Political story deserves an "F'
U. Magazine's January/February article on national
political groups reminds me of Hillary Clinton's health
care commission: a bunch of liberal-leaning paper-
pushers, meeting in secret, presum[ing] to judge its
subjects after a few interviews and inquiries. Who
decided what groups deserved an "A" and which merit-
ed a "D"? Nothing was mentioned about the composi-
tion of this grading panel, and a partisan slant is cer-
tainly reflected in the results. I am deeply insulted by
your characterization of the College Republicans as
nothing more than a bunch of partisan whiners. With
our national leadership, this organization is committed
to student activism and democratic ideals. P.erhaps that
attitude of greater openness and fairness should be
extended to the news division at U. Magazine. David
Marks, junior, College Republicans president, U.
Reality Bites doesn't need to define us
So Reality Bites isn't the defining Hllt of Generation
X, and neither was Singles or Slackers ["You talking
'Bout My Generation?" Vlarch 1994]. Who cares?
Why does any generation need a movie to define itself?
The reason nobody's made a defining movie about
our generation is that it can't be done. Stop trying.

Do you feel safe on
"Yes, because we have security guards
that are around at all times, and even
though we recently had a shooting on our
campus, they have increased the security
tremendously." Vannessa Ford, senior,
Norfolk State U.
"I live in the dorms and during the day
the campus is very safe but [not] in the
evening. If I need to go to the library or
the parking lot, I have to use the escort
service or bring my Mace." Wendy
Balka, sophomore, U. of Massa-
"Yes. I might be biased because I work
as a dispatcher for the UCLA police
department. I think that though we live in
[Los Angeles] and people think it's very
dangerous, the campus is very safe thanks
to the department of community safety,
which escorts women to their cars every
day of the year until 1 a.m." Selby
Arsena, senior, UCLA
"No, I don't feel safe on campus. I
don't feel our universities are being hon-
est with us about incidences of sexual
assault. I think they're trying to protect
the victims, but in doing so they're
putting the rest of us in jeopardy."
Kimberly Humphreys, junior, U. of
"I feel very safe upon my campus, but
as soon as I step off I get really scared and
I notice where I am and start looking
behind soy back a lot, because it's a dan-
gerous area. But on campus it's absolutely
safe." Charles Chao, sophomore, U. of
"Yes, but that's because I'm a male. I
think females probably have a tendency to
feel unsafe on campus because of the
police reports that they read in our local
paper." Phillip Kraft, sophomore, U. of
"No, as an openly gay man I do not feel
safe. One in four gay men are physically
bashed. Although I am big enough to take
care of myself, my grandmother of all
people bought me a stun gun just in case."
Steven Collingsworth Jr., graduate stu-
dent, The Ohio State U.
