BOA

Live from the archives this week goes back to 2002 when the SFUO pulled the plugged on its struggling bar “The Nox” after losing hundreds of thousands of dollars due to high rent and strong off-campus competition notably by Father’s and Sons. The Nox was replaced by the 1848 student bar a couple of years later.

The letter highlights a series of recommendations for a new student union: a constitution that can only be amended at an annual General Assembly with a majority vote, elections managed by an independent third party, a model of governance which includes mechanisms for punitive action should trust be breached, and accountability to its membership.

Letter to the Editor

We must resist the urge to scrap the whole organization. The SFUO can and should play a positive role in the lives of students. We can’t allow ourselves to become lazy and decide that the SFUO isn’t worth saving.
