OUR VIEW: More than just Mesquite Dining Hall should be open on weekends.

OUR VIEW: As cliché as it is, getting involved on campus is seriously important.

It's not just our right to vote – it's our duty. No, we aren't just talking about the national presidential elections, but the Student Government Association elections. The decisions and programs implemented by SGA will impact our everyday lives just as often as the decisions made by our next president. If we don't ...
