The Onion comes to campus

At Last Tuesday’s Student Assembly meeting, The Onion Pilot Program Act and the Post Office Opening Late (POOL) Act were both unanimously passed.
What does this mean to you, College student and loyal reader?
Well, for an eight week trial period there will be free copies of The Onion around campus and, starting yesterday, the College post office will be open from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. instead of from 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
For the first time in SA history (probably) a bill was brought to a vote AFTER receiving administration approval. In defiance of the SA’s unspoken code “Unanimously pass first, schedule pertinent meetings much later,” the POOL Act’s sponsor actually spoke to bigwigs at the post office and made sure that the time shift was doable before proposing it.
The finance committee also issued its much awaited report on questionable expenditures from the off-campus account. Approximately $200 in purchases could not be accounted for but there was no evidence to suggest that the purchases were inappropriate usages of funds. It was found that one senator inappropriately spent $4.79 at Wawa and may or may not have paid the money back. Thankfully, no one (myself included) cared.
