WEB EXCLUSIVE: EC discusses new logo, other updates
The USU Student Association ran an exceptionally long meeting Tuesday, hearing Tier II tuition presentations and discussing new legislation. Amid everything else, a few big announcements were made.
— President Doug Fiefia announced the new USU/SA logo will be revealed by the end of the year. For the first time, Athletics approved the use of the bull on its logo.
“This is the first time they’ve let any organization use the bull,” Fiefia said. “They’ve said no to teams before.”
— The Collegiate Readership Program with USA Today was also brought up. Fiefia said the group didn’t discuss the topic much when they were presented with the issue.
The program would give students a free subscription to USA Today and two other newspapers the school chooses. Those papers would be placed around campus three days a week for students to read. The program does not come with an online subscription.
“I’ve talked to some students about it, and they’re in support,” said Daryn Frischknecht, Student Advocate vice president. “But they’re students who are more involved.”
Matt Anderson, Senate pro tempore and College of Humanities and Social Sciences senator, said most of the Academic Senate is against it. Two of the main reasons are to keep student fees down and that most students reading the news do so online.
The council voted not to add the USA Today Collegiate Readership Program to the USU campus.
— Fiefia also announced his office will aid the Programming Office for the end of year bash.
“I spoke with James Morales to see if we could get a bigger band,” Fiefia said. “We decided to help programming up to $20,000.”12
