I fired off a letter to The Claremont Courrier after I learned of the totally destructive behavior of our Pitzer friends up at Claremont Graduate University. Here it is in its entirety.
I wasn't surprised to see that Pitzer College students were behind the latest wave of vandalism at Claremont Graduate University. After having destroyed Claremont McKenna's fountains earlier this year at the Karl Rove protest, one shouldn't expect any proper behavior on their part.
It's high time the college punish those responsible. If they fail to do so, I recommend disallowing Pitzer students access to our campus and classes. At Claremont McKenna, students are required to pay dorm damages if there is property damage, even if they aren't to blame. Why isn't Pitzer?
In response to the recent story [print only, not online] and letter to the editor regarding vandalism at the old Claremont Graduate University apartments on Dartmouth Avenue, please note that the Pitzer College students found to be involved were held accountable by the College.
They were required to pay for the clean-up, will perform community service and face additional sanctions. Statements to the contrary are untrue.Kira Poplowski
