Students elected Stephen Petkis and Jigish Patel as USG president and vice president and approved a referendum supporting a student fee increase for USG in this year's joint elections, but failed to approve increases for The Daily Campus and Nutmeg Yearbook.
Students gathered in the Student Union Theater this past Thursday night to attend "Full Frontal Feminism: Sexism, Activism and Justice," a lecture featuring feminist blogger and author Jessica Valenti and organized by SUBOG and the UConn Women's Center.
It's almost time for spring break, the most looked-forward-to time of the spring semester. While this is the time of year in which many students choose to escape to warm destinations for some carefree mid-semester fun, many UConn students choose instead to spend their vacations in a more altruistic way, through Alternative Spring Breaks. Student commitment to these programs is admirable and speaks volumes to UConn's commitment to a larger community.
