Alumna says rioters don't deserve WWU


Please join me in demanding that Western Washington University take severe action and expel all the students identifiable in the Saturday night riot in Bellingham, Washington.

My pride as a WWU graduate has been sorely undermined by the actions of these students. Western's reputation is built on the quality of its students and graduates. We cannot tolerate such disregard and mindless disrespect for community and those who serve our community.

None of these young people have demonstrated that they qualify to be full time students and scholars of an institution that seeks to make this a better world.
