Upon arriving at UNL thi
September, I found myself fadnj
situation which I find very hard tc
believe in a state-supported university.
Since first grade, I have been told that
ours is a democratic nation protected
by the U.S. Constitution, and that it is
the duty of the states to enforce and
guarantee our rights.
However, now that I am 19 and
considered an adult by law and can
enter contractual agreements, I
suddenly surrendered ail of these
rights when I signed my housing
contract to live in the UNL
I ask the Board of Regents, how
can you justify the denial of rights and
privileges of adulthood to those who
find a dormitory convenient living in
an "educational environment?"
Is it just and proper to restrict
visitors to dormitory rooms which
have been paid for, just as one would
rent an apartment off-campus? Is it
just and proper for students to be
required to leave their room door open
while visitors of the opposite sex are
present? Why is there a distinction
made between adult on-campus, and
adult off campus? Why should I be
penalized because I want to live
on-campus? Since tax money is not
used in dorms, why don't students
have a choice, since it is their money?
I aibo ask the regents and
IMebraskans to reread their
constitutions: Article XIV; "No state
shall make or enforce any law which
shall abridge the privileges or
immunities of citizens of the U.S.; nor
shall any state deprive any person of
life, liberty or property without due
process of law; nor deny to any person
within its jurisdiction the equal
protection of the laws."
I believe that the regents should
reconsider their positions in regard to
visitation and the open-door policy at
UNL since it is contrary to state and
federal law and is denying the rights
and privileges of the thousands of
students living on the Lincoln campus.
Beginning Friday, the Daily
Nebraskan will no longer publish
letters to the editor which are longer
than 500 words. The change is due to
the newsprint shortage and space
Letters received after Friday will
not be published if they exceed that
