Students get new Stroh Center vote

The University will now be forced to give undergraduate students a vote on whether they want to pay a $60 per semester fee to help fund the Stroh Center starting in 2011. When the Coalition for Undergraduate Student Reform held a rally on March 4, they acquired more than the 5 percent of undergraduate student signatures needed to overturn a USG decision, Chief Administrator Brandon Sallad said. According to the founder of the Coalition Steve Currie, 1,262 people signed the petition two weeks ago during the rally. The USG executive committee will meet tonight and discuss a potential date for when the vote will be, but according to USG’s constitution, a referendum must take place 15 academic days after March 6, the date the petition was handed in.
