UPUA President Rallies for Rally
We obtained a copy of the email that UPUA President Gavin Keirans sent out to his list-serv imploring them to come to Monday’s rally to protest the cuts in Penn State’s appropriations for the upcoming budget year.
While this may not seem like a major issue, it really could have a grave impact on the campuses, as many compete with the local community and state related schools for enrollment. By increasing aid to the state schools, and not Penn State Campuses, the number of those attending Penn State could take a drastic hit.
While some of you may not want to get involved in this because it may be viewed as a political issue, I ask that you reconsider as this is a Penn State issue. In my time here there has never been a rally that has united the student leaders of this campus, I think we finally have that issue. Bring out your entire organizations, and let me know if you would like to speak.
Well done, Gavin. This is exactly the kind of situation that depends on student leadership. The demonstration will be even more effective if the student body turns out in large numbers to support the effort, so we hope to see you there.
What: A rally protesting the cutbacks in Penn State’s appropriations
When: 12:00 pm on Monday February 9
Where: In front of Old Main
