Political apathy redux

The election is over, but as this week's Hurricane writes its the campus political groups that suffer. Their membership renewal rates have fallen as much as 50% since last semester. Both groups plan hosting individual events through the remainder of the semester along with a larger bi-partisan event later in the semester.

Not only that, but the paper is also reporting that there is only one platform running for SG this year.

Also suffering is the university's pocketbook – so much so that President Shalala recently presented a new collegiate contingency plan meant to keep the university stay afloat for the next two years. Didn't they just finish a 3.5BILLION DOLLAR fundraiser not that long ago?

On a happier note: the UM archaeological site at Little Salt Spring recently recieved a grant for $10,0000.
