Students take sides in Bush library debate
SMU Daily Campus
April 20, 2007
SMU has been chosen as the favorite to house the George W. Bush Presidential Library, but the campus opinion is far from unified.
“Having the presidential library at SMU will attract people from all over the world to come to the school and examine the documents of the Bush administration. It will bring worldwide recognition to the university,” said SMU alumnus Ryan Kenter.
The controversy over the library is one in a series of controversies during the Bush presidency: the Iraq War, Hurricane Katrina and the Alberto Gonzales firings, just to name a few.
Despite the fact that Dallas is largely Republican, many residents don’t want Bush’s legacy affiliated with their city.
