Letter: Stink of discrimination on 'Bison Pride'

Hey, North Dakota State University:

As I read about the clear mistreatment Kelli Sem is enduring from the Pharmacy School (Forum story, Feb. 6), I'm reminded of just how many times your leadership (sans a few) have time and again embarrassed both alumni and students.

You tell us that we should all have "Bison Pride", and that "the herd is stronger together." The only ounce of "Bison Pride" I see right now is in the NDSU student's determination to fight and follow through to reach success, despite you. I'm enormously proud of my accomplishments and those of other students and student-athletes before and since my graduation. But no amount of football championships can get the stink of this crap off you right now.

In the past, the embarrassment we had to face because of a chosen few was from cheating, lying or using funds improperly. Today we get to add a new one: discrimination.

Get your act together. Because right now, it's a great day to feel disappointed to be a Bison.
