Voting is set to open this week, including the vote on whether or not the Student Activity Fee should be kept mandatory. A lot of students don’t know just how important this is for the University and campus. The Student Activity Fee benefits students, not, as too many people think, “the people who just join clubs.”
College students throughout New York state held banners protesting tuition hikes across highway overpasses, Nov. 6. The protesters, who were working with the New York Public Interest Research Group (NYPIRG), were stationed at a total of ten locations including the areas surrounding Syracuse University, Nassau Community College and the State Universities of Binghamton, Albany, New Paltz and Stony Brook.
