The ARF’s May convention addressed labor rights, CSG, and patriotism.
Why CSG is Wrong About Having a Student on the Board of Regents
Amid recent concerns that the University administration is not receptive to the viewpoints of the student body, members of Central Student Government (CSG) have advocated for the creation of a non-voting student position on the Board of Regents.
