During this spring’s Student Government elections, students had the opportunity to vote on a referendum on whether they would support the sale of alcohol at on-campus athletic games.

Editorial: AU requires a culture shift from upper echelons of administration to attract further investment

(04/15/19 4:00am)

If you ask the average student about tuition rates, common themes among their responses will probably focus on the yearly increases and lack of affordability. However, what is also common is that students generally don’t know why tuition continues to rise. This is because the University hasn’t done a comprehensive job of telling them. For this reason, we support student activism on further budget transparency from the Board of Trustees and have seen our job as student journalists to provide further education on the budget.

Staff Editorial: We Need a New Secretary, SG

(09/16/16 4:45pm)

Since the beginning of this month, the student body has been left without a Student Government Secretary due to former Secretary Faith Rokowski’s resignation. Although the absence was notable, we believed that SG would be able to find a suitable replacement quickly in order to keep operations running smoothly. However, within the past few weeks that the student body has been without an official new secretary, SG has spent more time engaging in dramatics than actively seeking to fill the position.
