A Letter from the Editor

Welcome back to campus. It has been a long time since we last published a print edition of The Pioneer back in March. Even though a lot has changed since then, one thing will always remain the same, our passion for providing our readers with accurate and up to date…

Letter from the Editor: Ashley Bowden

It’s surreal that the day has finally come where I am writing my final piece for the Pioneer. My time working on this publication has been the highlight of my collegiate career, and I’m both heartened and saddened to bid it farewell. To all the dedicated staff members with their…

Letter from Alumnus

I graduated from Long Island University in 1985. Back then, we simply called it “CW Post.” While attending Post, I took a class in Political Science with Professor Stanley Jarolem. That class, along with others that I took with other professors at the campus, changed my life. Because of the…

Letter to the Editor: Kathryn Rockett

This message was originally sent via email to university President Kim Cline, and Athletic Director Debbie DeJong, and shared with the Pioneer by the writer. As an alum (of the business school) and a retired LIU employee I am shocked and saddened to see the announcement of the new mascot.…

Letter to the Editor: Dr. Barbara Fowles

Letter to the Editor

The Pioneer received a written letter from one of our regular readers last week and we wanted to share their kind words. The Pioneer staff work hard to remain objective in bringing the news to the campus community. Dear Jada and Ashley, I have read all the issues of the…

Regards to Dismissal of Dr. Kay Sato

To the Editors: As a former student of LIU Post, and as a former lecturer at Hutton House Lectures, I am shocked and dismayed at the sudden removal of Dr. Kay Sato from the directorship of Hutton House, a hugely self-destructive mistake on the part of the LIU Administration and…
