If you opened up social media, looked at the news, or even paid attention to campus events last year, odds are you heard a lot of debate about the way that the Trump administration responded to the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.
Dear Editor: I’m writing to voice my concern over Whittier’s “smoke free” campus policy, written about in the recent article: “Smoking on Whittier College’s campus snuffed out.” I hope, at the very least, this letter is able to spark some sort of dialogue over the creation of this policy, considering how the article itself mentions few people have spoke out against this or advocated otherwise.
