SU plans rally

Publication YearIssue Date 

The Students' Union is planning a protest at the University of Calgary Board of Governors meeting to express their disapproval of the university's handling of the recent decision to not accept credit cards to pay tuition.

"From the amount of student feedback we've received, we're confident this is a major student concern," said SU president Julie Bogle.

She had a meeting with university administration Tue. Apr. 1, but administration declined to give the issue any more thought.

"We've exhausted all diplomatic resources and avenues," said Bogle. "This is the straw that broke the camel's back."

The meeting will be 8:30 a.m. Fri., Apr. 11. in the Scurfield Hall 465.

the "last straw" is, uh, a rally in front of a meeting inside the business faculty?

wow, the SU is fucking useless.

how about planning some form of civil disobedience? you know, something that the ol' boys and/or the media would actually notice?

until the SU thinks outside the box, students who forcibly waste their money on this organization will get absolutely nothing in return.
