From the forum (Posted 1/29) - Letter to the editor “ I have recently received SPAM through my student gmail account from the ACC bulk mail account. Some of the SPAM I received was regarding how to recycle and some is regarding ads for classes that I have no interest in. I still want to receive important information like school closings. I contacted the ACC help desk and they told me to just delete it all using filters.This includes important announcements about school closings and the like. I am currently addressing the issue through the IT department and the Student Governance. I would appreciate it, if you would consider publishing an article on the downfalls of ACCmail. Thank you for taking the time to read this. “

“ I have recently received SPAM through my student gmail account from the ACC bulk mail account.

Some of the SPAM I received was regarding how to recycle and some is regarding ads for classes that I have no interest in.

I still want to receive important information like school closings.

I am currently addressing the issue through the IT department and the Student Governance.

I would appreciate it, if you would consider publishing an article on the downfalls of ACCmail.

Thank you for taking the time to read this. “

From the forum (Posted 11/11/08) - Comment on Board Forum at RGC Story “ I attended this and I asked a question concerning how marketable my degree will be after graduation. Now I am worried about there even being ANY jobs when I graduate due to the HORRIBLE economy! It seemed to me that the gentleman who spoke to us was nostalgic for the days when ACC was a prep class for those who were going on to attent the Univesity of Texas at Austin and not so much for those of us who are hear to get viable career skills. The thing is that it takes money to make endowments, fund academic research, scholarships and grants and make an educational institution run and if the graduates can't get jobs after we graduate, then how can we contribute to our school so that others can follow behind us. Not everyone needs or wants a four-year degree unless it can help you make more money in the career marketplace...because without money, you can't pay the rent, buy the groceries, ride the bus or pay the taxes which helps other people! Like it or not, this society is all about Money! “

From the forum A public forum: (Posted 9/22/08) - Comment on “Redress” column “ Ms Carpenter appears to be a young person very concerned about the youth on campus, What about the old farts like me who like John McCain? I was once young and I had better things to do than vote so I don't blame the youngins. Who has gas money to drive to vote. That will take away from their McDonalds money and MTV time. Young people today are not bystanders. They arw too lazy for that. Instead they are bysitters! GO AARP!”
