  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]
  • Found Family Books for the Holidays

Letter to the editor: BGSU alumnus gives thanks to faculty and students

LTTE 12/8

As I view the vacant space once occupied by West Hall, I recall an occurrence there one September day during my sophomore year.

On September 15, 1998, I had woken up late and subsequently skipped breakfast. During Professor Terry Rentner’s Journalism 200 class, held in Room 200 of West Hall, I became rather warm and suddenly my vision faded to snow – just like an old analog television screen. I fainted,

plummeting out of my chair and on to the floor.

When I regained consciousness, I found myself encircled by concerned classmates and a worried professor. This expression of gratitude for their concern and assistance — to Professor Rentner, School of Communication Studies administrative assistant Linda Fritz-Glomski,

School of Communication Studies secretary Ruth Firsdon, and my classmates — is long overdue.

If I had had any doubts about the sincerity and genuineness of BGSU staff and fellow classmates, the day of September 15, 1998, dispelled those doubts. Although West Hall is now history, I will long remember that day’s important lessons.
