Letter to the editor: To students trying to make a change


Dear students trying to make a change,

A lot student on campus feel like they can’t make a change in the Lehigh community, and to an even larger extent, the Bethlehem community, but I’m writing this to tell you that you can. This semester alone there have been two walks against the Dakota Access Pipeline, and even more talks about how to make the campus a place where the views, ideas and identities everyone can be included. Though environmental issues (yes, there are issues with the environment) have taken the back seat during the presidential election you can still make a difference. The first step to making a change on campus is by planning unique and collaborative events and The Center for Community and Engagement has an Engagement and Activism Workshop on Dec. 9 in the Global Commons at Williams Hall from 4-6 p.m. If you’re really interested in making a positive impact on campus you should try to make it to this workshop.
