Podcast: Weekly news wrap-up: the President’s speech interrupted and the new bar passage rates

Today is Saturday, Oct. 7. Here are the three stories from this week that you need to know.

In this weekly news wrap-up, Podcast Editor Alec Cowan and Senior News Reporter Michael Tobin discuss President Michael Schill’s “State of the University” address, which was suspended due to a student protest. Also included is an overview of Oregon’s recent bar exam results, which allowed 36% more students to pass the exam after the minimum passing grade was lowered. Also included is the anonymous $50 million donation to the university that will fund the “Presidental Fund for Excellence.”
