I kid you not folks. After two years of being VP External and making some key contacts, I have a firm commitment from a friend of a friend of a friend who knows someone that this will happen. The Latino pop sensation has joined the student tuition movement and will be protesting along with the large crowd which is expected.

  Is it the SU's responsibility to support your habit?PDF files may take a moment to load

Yet another smoking space on campus will soon see closure. The Black Lounge will close so that bigger, better, more profitable services can be provided for students. (If you can't tell by now, I'm somewhat pissed off by this).

Yes, you've heard correctly. The Black Lounge is closing. When it is going to happen has yet to be determined. As the bearer of this news, I have a responsibility to inform you of the consequences and the options the Students' Union has.

To begin, the operating agreement and financing are now in place to begin construction of the new expansion. We are beginning preparations for building the new facility and will continue redevelopment projects in the existing buildings.

There are 1,200 students on this campus who have cheques coming to them from Ottawa this winter. So, here is the scoop on how to collect your Canada Millennium Scholarship for next year if you're one of the lucky people who have money coming to them.

3. Present them with some sort of ID.

  We get by with a little help from our friendsPDF files may take a moment to load

If you're beating your head with a stick for getting that C on your Biology mid-term and still burning the midnight oil trying to finish that 20 page paper due this week, think of the bright side. Be thankful if your stomach is full. Be thankful if you have a place to sleep every night. Be thankful if you have a little money to buy presents for your family and friends. This season, many students on this campus won't have enough nutritious food to eat, and money to see their families, let alone cash to buy presents.

One of those questions is what role should universities and colleges play in our nation's future? More specifically, what role should government play in funding post-secondary education?
