Staff Editorial: The Bullet Apologizes for Seacobeck Error

Last week, the Bullet incorrectly reported in a front-page headline that the Mary Washington Board of Visitors had voted to demolish Seacobeck Hall. In fact, President Rick Hurley had merely decided to pull Seacobeck from the Master Plan and form a committee of students, faculty and preservation experts to recommend a plan of action regarding […]

Staff Editorial: Each New Semester Brings A New Editorial Staff

In case there was any confusion on campus, we’d like to go ahead and clear it up right now:  the Bullet is not the New York Times.   We might publish the same kind of Pulitzer-worthy content and our readership might be roughly equivalent in size, but in terms of setting a consistent long-term editorial agenda, […]

LETTER: Bullet got it wrong on new Meditation Space

Letter to the Editor: Students Are Not Denied Escorts

Dear Editor: I am writing in response to your editorial in last week’s Bullet in which you stated that some students have reported that escorts were requested but never provided.  I have two concerns with the fact that this statement was made.  First, no one contacted Campus Police to ask what their experience was relative […]

Bullet Flash Back

In 1971, two years prior to Roe v. Wade, students at Mary Washington College had one place to go when they were pregnant and scared: the student newspaper office. “I can’t tell you how many students got illegal abortions,” said Jane Touzalin, editor-in-chief of the Mary Washington Bullet in 1970 and 1971. “People would come […]
