ouTube star Bo Burnham performed his comedic songs and told jokes in front of 4,000 students and fans at the Stroh Center on Thursday night. As one of the youngest musical comedian stars, Burnham performed satirical and politically edgy songs and jokes on issues such as race, gender and sexuality. “When I first started, I was like a little awkward, pubescent 15-year-old kid saying really dirty and offensive things,” Burnham said in an exclusive interview with The BG News. “I wasn’t sure who was going to watch my videos, but apparently people like them.” Burnham is a strong believer that the Internet had a lot to do with his success. That, and his decision to go on tour following high school instead of heading to college. “I don’t know if I would have been discovered, I just have no idea,” Burnham said. “I do think the whole [college process] would have made me a different comic.” Burnham had originally planned on attending a college in New York the fall after his graduation, hoping to “perform open mics in bars for drunk college students,” but ended up taking a different route to a fast-track career, he said. “I was pretty bitter at first not having the college experience, but I have no regrets with how everything turned out,” Burnham said. Burnham performs a different kind of comedy that he believes is more attractive for audiences. He has previously recorded a Comedy Central special, the youngest ever to do so, and released three comedy albums. “I was really into theater and I always wanted to make a show that was like a production, really exciting and big,” Burnham said. “I just did what I thought was funny.” His appearance on campus was theatrical, with Burnham interacting with the audi-

Faculty Association marches on McFall, plans next move By Max Filby Editor-in-Chief

BUFFALO BEATDOWN

The University began its annual participation in an international recycling competition Monday, but this year the stakes are higher than they’ve ever been. RecycleMania, a contest that began more than 10 years ago in Ohio, challenges over 600 universities across the nation and even a few in Canada to reduce campuswide waste and increase their percentage of recycling over an eight week period. Nick While the University was one Hennessy of the first schools to begin parUniversity ticipating, it previously only comSustainability peted in the residence halls diviCoordinator sion of the contest, said Nicholas Hennessy, campus sustainability coordinator. “This is the first year that we’ll be entering into the campus-wide competition as opposed to just our residence halls,” Hennessy said. “It’s the same national competition, it’s just that this time we’re in the big leagues rather than just a friendly competition.” Entering into RecycleMania’s campus-wide competition division pins the University up against many around the nation, some significantly smaller but others much larger. This new division means waste and recyclables from every building on campus, not just residence halls, will be measured weekly and converted into weight for submission. Recycling is only part of the competition, as students, faculty and staff will try to reduce their total waste throughout the contest. “Throughout the duration of the contest, you may not be producing a million cans and bottles, but that’s not really the purpose,” Hennessy said. “It’s more important to cut your waste as much as possible.” Waste Management Inc., a third-party supplier, is responsible for emptying dumpsters throughout campus and will be able to give Hennessy the weight of the waste they collect on a weekly basis. In order to measure recyclables, the custodial staff in residence halls will report what they collect in volume, which Hennessy’s office can then calculate using a volume to weight conversion. For the other buildings on campus, student staff and the recycling grounds crew will be responsible for collecting and reporting volumes. Competing in the campus-wide division will be much more challenging because of the amount of waste and trying to get more people involved. The Office of Campus Sustainability is trying to encourage campus-wide participation. “One of the things we’re doing is the ‘Caught Green Handed’ raffle,” said Campus Sustainability intern Jacob Clolinger. “Our volunteers will be going around campus looking for people recycling

Sophomore Jennie Maione said she loved his comedy act and was more than pleased when she heard he was coming. “When I found out, I YouTubed some more of his videos and fell in love with his work,” Maione said. “I also really enjoyed his opening act, Josh Sneedy, he was really funny.” Comedian Josh Sneedy was excited to open for Burnham, who Sneedy said gave a great performance. “Not only was Bo funny, but the crowd was amazing too,” Sneedy told The BG News. Even though student tickets were free, UAO raised money by selling tickets to the community, allowing a meet-and-greet after the show and a raffle.

Burnham, it was said, had began posting his songs on YouTube to communicate with his military brother who was supposedly stationed in Afghanistan. Burnham confirmed that it was him all along who started the rumor. “It is true at one point that I may have said that,” Burnham said. “I don’t know if I said it because I didn’t want people to think I was just trying to get discovered or something, but I don’t know what it was.” One thing is true: he does have a brother.

CHANTING ‘cut back, fight back,’ are students and members of the University’s faculty at the March on McFall on Wednesday.

FACULTY From Page 1 nize the march other than stating that the University would not be “commenting further on either the faculty reductions or contract negotiations.” The statement is part of an ongoing effort to make sure negotiations are conducted privately, instead of in the media, according to the press release. Despite the press release, the Faculty Association is trying to shed more light onto the cutting of 100 faculty members, rather than negotiating collective bargaining in the media, Jackson said. “We’re not asking to negotiate in public ... this time it’s about those 100 faculty,” Jackson said. Jackson, along with sophomore Michael Hart, delivered a petition protesting the 100 cuts to BGSU President Mary Ellen Mazey’s office during the march. The petition had close to 5,100 signatures from people at the University, in the state

RECYCLE From Page 1 and entering anyone they see doing so into a drawing to win a gift card for dining services or maybe the bookstore.” Student organizations like the Environmental Service Club have helped spread awareness throughout campus on the importance of the competition. “Now that the entire campus is involved, we can see how much we’re throwing away and what percentage is recycled material campus wide,” said Stephanie Noftz, president of the Environmental Service Club. “I think this is a great opportunity for us to become aware of the amount of resources we’re using in our daily lives.” Also involved is the

of Ohio and around the country. Upon greeting Jackson and Hart, Mazey assured them that a lot of consideration went into the decision to cut faculty in an effort to save $5.2 million. “It was a tough budgetary decision,” Mazey said. “Our biggest priority is serving our students.” Jackson and Hart then returned to the crowd of about 300 people outside of McFall Center, where they had both earlier spoken about the cuts. “We’re all here because of some shared values,” Hart said during the march. “If there is this disconnect between the university and its students, then the university can’t reach its full potential.” Hart, a political science student, got more involved with the march after finding out an instructor, who helped him get an internship in Washington, D.C. this past summer, will not return for the fall semester. “He’s the kind of teacher we want to keep,” Hart said.

“It was a tough budgetary decision... Our biggest priority is serving our students.” Mary Ellen Mazey | President While most of the cuts that were announced Jan. 18 will come in the form of faculty retiring or leaving for other jobs, some faculty on one year contracts will not receive contract renewals. Such is the case with Hart’s instructor. The cuts came as the BGSU Board of Trustees approved about a one percent raise for Mazey, taking her salary from $375,100 to $382,602, according to a document featuring the University’s gross earnings for the fiscal year 2011-12. Other staff also received raises that went into affect this past September. The Board of Trustees also awarded Mazey a $50,000 bonus in December, which Mazey said she would donate to student scholarships.

“Every little bit counts and a huge amount of success will depend on students” Nick Hennessy | Sustainability Coordinator Residence Student Association, which serves as ambassadors for RecycleMania, said member Elizabeth Schnee. RSA sets up special glass recycling stations in some residence halls since the University stopped recycling glass about four years ago. “The schools and residence halls that do well are the ones that take on glass, because a full container of glass is 246 pounds as opposed to a full container of plastic, which is about 13 pounds,” said Hennessy. Both Hennessy and Clolinger encourage stu-

dents to try and consciously think about their purchases over the next couple months, especially in the all-youcare-to-eat dining facilities. “Every little bit counts and a huge amount of success will depend on students,” said Hennessy. “There’s over 18,000 of them here using recyclables every day and if we think of this as a marathon rather than a sprint, it can have a huge impact.” The competition runs from February 4th to March 30th. Anyone can check to see where the University ranks in the contest at RecycleManiacs.org.

New media takes over priorites OLIVIA SMITH COLUMNIST

The human mind has an inherent urge to obtain new information. We are constantly seeking new things to learn and read about. Is this why we are so dependent on technology and social networks? It is so easy for college students to get wrapped up in the latest technology trend and to be hooked on what is happening on social sites like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Our generation will sit on Twitter, constantly refreshing their feeds for hours. We read and re-read our Facebook timelines hoping for something new to pop up, even when we know nothing has changed over the past 10 seconds. So why is it so easy for us to waste time on these sites and fiddle with technology, but so hard and grueling for us to sit down and read a five-page chapter for a class? The answer is simply this: we want new, up-to-date, interesting information. We are more concerned with what our friend Johnny did last night than what the third chapter of our biology book has to tell us. Instead of going on a news site for the latest information, we hit up Facebook or Twitter to see what is trending there instead. This news is more interesting and of more importance to us than what is happening in the real world. Our priorities have changed. With the increasing availability of technology across generations, this phenomenon is becoming more and more common. We constantly have access to our social networks on our smart phones, tablets and laptops, making it easier for us to get distracted

reshman Yai-Jahnee Lawler couldn’t imagine college without dancing. When she found out about Elem3nt, the University’s hip-hop dance crew, it seemed like a perfect fit. “I went to a performing arts high school, so dance is all I know,” she said. Lawler, who is trained mainly in ballet, said at first she was hesitant with trying hip-hop dancing. “Hip-hop is so free, it’s different from the strictness [of ballet],” she said. After joining, Lawler became more comfortable with dancing with a new group of people. Elem3nt, which was formed in 2008 under

The group decided to change their name to Elem3nt because of the diversity of the group. “When we started it was a bunch of girls and me,” he said. Elem3nt has danced for different events

and organizations around campus. “We danced for the MLK day, Saint Baldrick’s, Dance Marathon and Sibs ‘n Kids weekend,” said sophomore and coVice President Kezia Reynolds, who started dancing with the group last year. “We try to give back to the community.” “When I was a freshman there was a dance contest at the Rec and I competed because I was with my friends and I was comfortable,” Reynolds said. “The president actually spotted me the next day, and told me I should go to an informational.” Reynolds attended an information session not intending to join, but after seeing how dedicated the group was, she audi-

Students go western in ‘Abundance’ By Patrick Pfanner Reporter

Student actors are opening a window to the past with “Abundance,” a western play opening next weekend. “Abundance” is based on a story by Beth Henley, a Pulitzer Prizewinning author, and premieres at 8 p.m. Feb. 14 in the Eva Maria Saint Theatre inside the Wolfe Center. Tickets are $9 for students

and $12 for non-students. The play centers around two women in the pursuit of love, fortune and the dangers they encounter out west, said Sara Chambers, Director and University Lecturer. Those who arrive early have the chance to sit in the “fright zone,” the first row that’s just 10 feet away from the performers, she said. “Abundance” has a diverse set of scenes, some of which involve

intense action, so sitting closer helps pull the audience into the story, Chambers said. “Our culture thrives on fastpaced action, and this play has that,” said Dylan Stretchbery, University senior and actor in the play. “It’s written like a movie but it has a span of 25 years.”

After receiving fifth place in a talent show at their high school in Norwalk, Ohio more than seven years ago, vocalist and rhythm guitarist Kevin Stoll and lead guitarist Chris Kirk decided it was time to pursue music. They are now known as the alternative rock band Lesson 22. “The top five qualifiers were able to play at a coffee shop, and after the set, people came up to us and said they liked our sound,” Stoll said. “If it wasn’t for those comments, I wouldn’t have thought twice about going on with [the band].” Kirk said the meaning behind Lesson 22 is based off self-reflection and a personal epiphany. “Everybody has that one thing that may put them in a different course in life or gives them a different understanding of their surroundings,” Kirk said. Stoll sa id t he ba nd tries to keep energ y between the band and the crowd during a show by playing with powerful emotion and writing about serious issues.

Kirk went on to attend college in Akron and Stoll moved to California and sold magazines. This didn’t keep the two from staying in touch, though.

PEOPLE ON THE STREET “I thought the March on McFall was a good cause.”

DANIELLE WISHART Senior, Political Science and History

What cause do you feel pasionate enough about to protest on campus?

“Mazey. She’s cutting staff.”

BOB BLACK Junior, Digital Arts

University should not be run like a corporation JAMES PFUNDSTEIN FACULTY COLUMNIST

On Wednesday I was marching with about 300 other people through the Union to McFall Center, wondering (not for the first time) what BGSU is anyway. We — faculty, students and friends of BGSU — were holding the march to deliver, in a certain noisy style, a petition to the administration. More than 5,000 people have signed the petition protesting the arbitrary cutting of 100 faculty positions for the next academic year. Now, members of the administration have the petition in front of them and can contemplate the whirlwind of bad publicity they unleashed with their relentless, anti-education policies. That was what got me to wondering about BGSU. The administration could not possibly have anticipated this response to the decimation of the faculty. The BGSU-Faculty Association’s initial response to the firing upset the administration’s bargaining team so much that they cancelled the next week’s negotiating session, in my opinion, in panic or in pique. Thousands of formerly friendly eyes are now looking at BGSU with disapproval. No one goes out of their way to earn that kind of attention. So the administration couldn’t really have anticipated it. But why not? Did they really expect to kill 11 percent of faculty positions (those faculty among the hardest working at BGSU) without drawing attention? They may have actually expected the attention to be positive. It’s the kind of thing a big corporation does sometimes: slash payrolls to gain a reputation for profitability. And that seems to be the current administration’s notion about BGSU: that it’s a corporation with a football team. Last week’s Mazey@BG message was full of happy talk about the cheerleading team and the Florida Falcon getaway, but void of information about a financial crisis so severe that 11 percent of the faculty positions have to be cut. I’m delighted that BGSU’s cheerleading team did so well, that the hockey team is having such a good season and I even hope people have a good time at the Florida Falcon getaway. But none of those things are central to BGSU’s real mission: education. While the administration seeks to balance its budget on the back of the faculty and the faculty alone, the ranks of administrators at this university are not being cut and millions of dollars of student fees are dumped every year into programs that are perpetually in the red. If BGSU is a corporation, in short, it’s not one with a really well-thought-out business plan. There are many problems with the corporate model of the University, not least of which is this: it’s an authoritarian model. It assumes that one person, or one small group of people, have all the answers and that it’s everyone else’s job to shut up and obey orders. When that small group of leaders goes off course, there’s no one around to correct them. Fortunately, that’s not the only model. The hundreds marching on Wednesday, and the thousands who signed the petition, have another notion. This University is not a corporation. It’s a community for learning and teaching. Anything that promotes those ends is good policy; anything that degrades them is bad policy. The firing of the BGSU 100 is just one in a long string of bad policy decisions by the current admin-

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Armstrong deserved his punishement If the purpose of Monday’s paper was to enrage BGSU students, then congratulations, you were successful. I enjoy Falcon’s Screech, the sports articles and other aspects of Mondays Issue. But this week I found that most of my emotions were targeted at the column “Lance Armstrong’s steroid use unimportant, all athletes use them.” I found it shocking that the columnist had the audacity to talk about the audacity of others opinions regarding

Armstrong and his drug usage. The beginning of the article includes phrases like “If it were the “Tour de America”, I would be incredibly invested in that competition.” This is contradicted by statements later in the article, such as “Quit ragging on the guy. He’s my hero.” You have a hero from a competition you are not incredibly invested in? That’s hypocritical. “[He] will always be a hero and inspiration...he battled and defeated testicular cancer and still found a way to get out there to compete and win. His steroid use is a null point.” Really? This is actually what you wrote? The way he com-

peted and won after battling testicular cancer was through the usage of STERIODS; Making steroids anything EXCEPT a null point. If the accusations and evidence are turned over and the investigations change course, proving that Armstrong didn’t use steroids to win, then perhaps people would stop ragging on him. Armstrong did some amazing athletics when he cycled. It’s a shame he didn’t do it all on his own, so comparing Armstrong to A Dark Knight (and quoting “Batman”/Nolan) is a bit much. A more appropriate quote would be by Frank Miller stat-

ing that “The noir hero is a knight in blood caked armor. He’s dirty and he does his best to deny the fact that he’s a hero the whole time.” However, this quote more describes a true dark knight and not Armstrong. The bit about cyclists who “didn’t take steroids, so had clearly never thought about winning and were the same kids who rode with bells on their bikes” was just astounding.

Go work out. Go do something about it. Do not just sit there and complain. No one pities you for your own self-doubts and twisted body image problems.

Your friends are not going to make you skinnier and certainly sitting around eating chips while watching “Pretty Little Liars” is not going to make you skinnier either. Get up and get active. It is no one’s fault but your own that you feel you are too fat. It is frustrating to hear people complain about how they are gaining weight in college and that they were so much skinnier in high school. Well, let us look at the reasons for this. Your diet. Are you

eating Steak Escape everyday or going to Wild Greens? Are you stuffing your face at The Oaks rather than just eating until you are full? Both are simple choices one can make or change on a daily basis that will reduce their chance of becoming fat in college. Another factor: exercise. The University has a nice recreation facility that students can utilize to help stay in shape.

Cairnduff helps Falcons put down Buffalo

5

Clutch free throws put game out of reach for Bulls despite late game rally

By Max Householder Reporter

The BG women’s basketball team pulled out a close win against the Buffalo Bulls in an away game Thursday night. BG defeated the Bulls by a final score of 61-56, as a couple of Bailey Cairnduff’s late-game free throws put the game out of reach. Buffalo had cut the Falcons’ lead to just three points,

59-56, with less than five seconds to go, but Cairnduff’s free throws kept the lead. The freshman, who put up 14 points against Central Michigan this past Sunday, also made a three-pointer to give her five points on the night. The Falcons’ shot nearly as well as BG had against Central Michigan, as BG shot 36 percent on 22 of 61 shooting against the Bulls.

BG looked as if they were going to win easily, running out to an 11-point lead on a 6-0 scoring run with just over 12 minutes left in the first half. Buffalo struggled to score, going over four minutes between field goals in that stretch. Buffalo relied on good three-point shooting to keep them in the game. With the deficit still at 11, Buffalo’s Karin Moss would cut the

lead to eight, 36-28, with a three-point bucket at the end of the first half. In the game, Buffalo shot 50 percent from behind the arc. They were seven of 14 compared to the Falcons’ six of 23. In the second half, Buffalo caught up and kept the margin at or around four points. The Bulls pulled the lead to a one-point gap, 37-36, with just over 15 minutes remain-

ing. The Falcons answered by going on a 7-0 run to put them back up by eight with over 12 minutes remaining. Buffalo rallied before Cairnduff’s free throws sealed the deal for BG. The Falcons again had just one player scoring in double digits as senior Chrissy Steffen had 14. Junior Alexis Rogers had nine points, all in the first half, and finished with eight rebounds.

The BG track and field team will compete Friday and Saturday at the Grand Valley State University Big Meet — one of the largest meets in the country. The Falcons are coming off a strong weekend meet at Akron University, where they ran a full weekend of simi la r events.

The BG hockey team takes on Michigan State in a homeand-home series this weekend in what could be the teams’ final meeting as conference opponents. Central Collegiate Hockey Association foes since 1981, Michigan State is moving to the Big Ten next season and BG is heading to the Western Collegiate Hockey Association. There is, however, a chance the teams will meet in the CCHA playoffs this season. Friday’s game will be played at the BGSU Ice Arena, while Saturday’s game is in East Lansing. The rivalry between the two teams runs back to Michigan State’s earliest days in the CCHA, when the team was coached by Ron Mason. Mason was the head coach at BG from 1973 until 1979, when he left to coach at Michigan State. He had a 16063-6 record at BG and took the Falcons to the NCAA Tournament three times. While current BG coach Chris Bergeron said the rivalry with Michigan State doesn’t run as deep for him as it might for others in the community, he maintained he would like to play the Spartans in non-conference games in the future. “They’re interested in playing us; we’ve talked two-forone,” Bergeron said, meaning BG would play two games in

Buffalo was led by freshman Mackenzie Loesing, who in 37 minutes of play finished with 20 points and nine rebounds. The Bulls lead scorer this year, Cherridy Thornton, tied with Steffen as the game’s second-leading scorer with 14 points. With the win, the Falcons move to 15-7 (6-3 MAC) on the year and are tied with Akron and Miami for first place in the MAC East.

The BG gymnastics team will look for its second win as they travel west to St. Charles, Mo. to play the Lindenwood University Lions. The Falcons will perform against non-conference opponents for the first time in three weeks. The Lindenwood Lions are 1-7 on the year, coming off their best performance of the season in a loss to a familiar Texas Woman’s University team. The Lions scored a school record 191.250 against TWU. The Lions’ Emily Turik earned Gymnast of the Week honors in the Midwest Independent Conference. Coach Kerrie Beach said

after last the loss against Kent State this past Saturday that she thought the team played well. “All the girls had bright spots,” She said. “It’s something to build on.” The Falcons produced season high scores for the balance beam and floor exercise routines in the loss to Kent State, 195.800193.825. The Falcons are 1-4 (1-2 MAC) on the season. Megan Harrington said she had a strong meet against Kent State. “We work a lot on confidence and repetition,” Harrington said. “We do a lot of pressure sets. Everyone stops and looks at you while

Falcons will look to qualify as many women as possible before the indoor season comes to a close Saturday. The Falcons currently have seven qualified athletes. Allison Weimer and Krystin Reiser qualified in two events and their 4x400 meter relay qualified as well. “We just need to qualify for MAC this weekend and get to the meet,” Snelling said. “Then once we get there, play as high a level as we possibly can.” No matter what happens or who qualifies this weekend, the Falcons have made a great improvement over the course of the indoor season, and look to make a great jump when outdoor season comes, Snelling said. “We are starting to seem more depth than we did this time last year which is a great and a good start for us,” Snelling said. “It is a nice step from last year but we still have some work to do to get where we want to be.” The meet will start at 9 a.m. both Friday and Saturday, but the Falcons will not start until approximately 1:55 p.m. on Friday and 11 a.m. on Saturday.

Hopefully, that burns. I would like to see a little glimmer in our eyes because of that.” The Spartans are last in the CCHA standings with 16 points. They are four points behind 10th place Northern Michigan and nine points behind eighth place BG. “We haven’t really spent time talking about the stand-

We still have time to try and get things in order.” The Falcons have won five straight games at home and are 6-3-1 in their past 10 games.

KENDRA BEITZEL, left, who plays Macon Hill, talks to Eli Brickey, who plays Best Johnson, during a rehearsal of the play Abundance. The play will open Feb. 4 at 8 p.m. in the Eva Marie Saint Theater.

PLAY From Page 3 Action plays like this can take several months of work and rehearsal to put together, Chambers said. Preparation for the play began in late October, when the story and cast was chosen. The goal was to hit the ground running when practices started in January, Chambers said. The cast practices more than 20 hours per week, making the commitment similar in length to a parttime job, Chambers said. Between the five main cast members and those working on props, costumes and choreography, there are more than 40 students involved in the play. “There’s a lot of invisible

work that goes into production,” Chambers said. “I’m proud that we have such a large group of students involved.” Some students get involved by approaching the director, while others get involved through their theatre classes. For example, The Theatre Experience, a class that teaches humanistic values in theatre, gives its students the chance to join a play’s production team, according to the course description. “Classes like [The Theater Experience] help get your foot in the door of the production crew,” Chambers said. The Department of Theatre and Film hopes students will promote the play through social networking and posters.

The actors want their fellow students to take advantage of the play by turning it into a learning experience. “[The west] is part of our history,” said Eli Brickey, a University senior and actor in the play. “It makes me nostalgic to see a western that’s so broad.”

Support faculty by witholding donations By Zach Tarvin Guest Columnist

The administration has recently tried to justify cutting 100 faculty positions by claiming the job cuts would help ensure the success of students, while keeping the student-toinstructor ratio the same. That sort of cookie-cutter justification goes against statements that run to the core of the University, such as the claim from the University website that “The heart and soul of our University is our faculty ... They are focused on preparing our students to be successful in today’s knowledge-based, global economy.” As an alumnus, it’s clear that the current administration has forgotten the core values and interests of the University. So much so, that when I was asked to donate this week, I had to declare that until the decision to cut faculty is reversed, and the current leadership at the University is no longer in place, I cannot support my beloved alma mater. Once a Falcon, always a Falcon. That’s still true, but it would be a huge slap in the face of every faculty mentor that

gave me one of the unique and formative opportunities I had in my time at the University were I to donate with their jobs on the line. It’s important that the student body realizes that these faculty cuts are a huge deal, but it’s imperative that you make your voice heard as loud and as often as you possibly can. I made the decision that I couldn’t contribute to the University during one of the semi-regular calls alumni get asking for a donation. As soon as I was off the phone, I emailed President Mazey and other University officials asking them to reconsider these cuts, explaining why I won’t be donating any time soon. What response does a concerned alumnus get? Nothing. That’s the tone the administration takes with the faculty, too. I’ve posted the email online (zachtarvin.tumblr.com), and intend to share it with known University contributors, area businesses and alumni very soon. I urge each and every one of you to do the same. Write to

istration. The authoritarians will tell you that there’s nothing you can do; the decision has been made; now shut up and do your job (or your homework, or both). But they’re lying. This is Bowling Green State University, an entity created by the state to serve the community. If you’re part of the community you can have an effect by making your voice heard. The next direct action by students and faculty will be an informational picket line on Presidents Day, Feb. 18th. You can check out the Facebook group “BGSU Students Supporting Faculty” for info about that and other upcoming events. If we make enough noise, at enough times and in enough places, maybe we can apply the course correction that BGSU so badly needs. Perhaps the administration will come to see that a university needs to put academics first — not just as a slogan, but in fact.
