Letter to the editor: Students deserve the right to fly our flag in memory of 9/11

Harrison Houlihan, President of the Guilford College Republicans

September 19, 2014

When I came to Guilford College in 2011, Professor Bill McCarver taught my first class. That class taught me as much about life as it taught me about college writing. I eagerly went to his retirement ceremony at Hege Library, hoping that my support might make up for the fact he was being pushed into...

A note from The Guilfordian’s incoming Editor-in-Chief During my first year at Guilford, I was a bit of a shut-in. I had a few friends and my writing and work to keep me busy.

Former Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon and I attended the same high school. I remember he came to school almost every day in pressed jeans, a blazer and tie.

April 25, 2014

Last Sunday was April 20, and I’m sure many Guilford students were ‘celeblazing’ the day. So, let’s talk about drugs. The war on drugs has been a massive failure. I know it, you know it. Its goal was to reduce drug abuse, crime and drug availability while creating more treatment options...

Today in America, we like to look at our level of equal opportunity as constantly improving. While this is mostly true, we still have a long way to go, especially...
