Disappointed in Cambus services

As a junior at the University of Iowa, I have spent a lot of the time on the Cambus. This year’s Cambus service has been absolutely deplorable.

I have, on a half a dozen occasions, been forced to wait outside for unacceptable amounts of time for a bus because routes have simply not shown up. And I don’t mean that they don’t show up on time, I mean they don’t show up. At all.

Moreover, I am writing this letter after standing outside in below-zero temperatures for 50 minutes without any buses coming. I know that a lot of colleges do not have buses for students, but I don’t care. We are not paying tens of thousands of dollars in tuition money to get the horrendous service the Cambus has provided this year.

Hats off to Zach Wahls

I would like to publicly commend Zach Wahls for his masterful address to the Iowa House of Representatives regarding House Joint Resolution 6.

If you have not seen his video yet, please search it out. It is one of the most insightful and elegant arguments in support of gay marriage you will ever see. Consequently, the video has already gone viral and landed him an interview on MSNBC, along with accolades from Ellen DeGeneres and many others. Few individuals have ever represented this community and state better. We appreciate your commitment.
