Editorial: Allegations create an embarrassment for all University students

The allegations made Saturday night and publicized Sunday night go beyond a retaliatory action in a student government election to a real use of email fraud and elections sabotage.

Editorial: ASUO elections shouldn’t start until week two

Letter: Katie and Alex slate will work to acknowledge everyone's voice

One of the biggest and most important reasons why I chose to stand by the Katie and Alex campaign is because of the innovative approach they have both taken on this year. I believe that one of the hardest things ASUO has struggled with throughout the course of the years has been to equally represent each and every community that comes from diverse backgrounds—this includes having students from varied cultural and political ideologies on board with them.

With more than ten slate candidates in a Greek house, Ben and Lamar understand that fraternities and sororities produce incredible leaders.
