Cliff Notes May 2004: Volume 1, Number 2


Paper Trail
University construction hits a wall, hammers on - Oct. 24, 2005 UCSD’s Rady School of Management was initially touted as the first University project to be fully paid for through private funds in 2001. Come September this year, Chancellor Marye Anne Fox had to request a budget augmentation from the UC Board of Regents to allow UCSD to throw $12.5 million from campus funds into the project. MORE

A.S. Council pulls plug on SRTV - Nov. 7, 2005 The months-long debate over free speech and broadcast decency came to a head late last week, when angry student leaders ordered administrators to pull the plug on Student-Run Television, taking the station off the air. A visibly upset A.S. Vice President of Finance Greg Murphy, ’07, made the call to Triton Cable operators to stop the station’s signal shortly after 10 p.m. on Nov. 3. He later had to confront angry SRTV members outside the station’s office. MORE

Federal loans again on chopping block - Nov. 28, 2005 After turning down legislation that would have stunted Pell Grant growth, the U.S. House of Representatives proceeded to cut student aid, passing a bill that reduces funding of federal student loans by $14.3 billion. The downsizing is part of a “budget reconciliation” process to reduce the federal deficit by $50 billion. In the report, the Congressional Budget Office concluded that the bill would force a change in interest rates on student loans, which would inflate student borrowing costs by $5.5 billion.        MORE

Sting operation nabs pub - Dec. 1, 2005 Porter’s Pub faces a possible fine up to $3,000 and temporary suspension of its liquor license after an employee sold alcohol to a minor without requesting identification. In an undercover sting operation led by San Diego Police Department vice operations Detective Larry Darwent, an underage volunteer was sent into the pub to purchase a beer on Nov. 17. The employee was immediately fired and must appear in court on Jan. 19. She faces a misdemeanor charge and a fine of up to $1,000. MORE

Who’s Driving Doug?
Two buddies, a road trip to Las Vegas and a girl, all sound like a recipe for a wild ride. For Michael Carnick, ’07, it was a recipe for a screenplay that won him $25,000. MORE

Surf on Our Turf
Newsweek may have dubbed us the “Hottest in Science” but let’s not forget that Sports Illustrated once named us top surf school. And yet, strangely, UCSD has never had a surf shop. That was until John Lembach saw an opportunity and began working with John Muir College officials to open up Muir Surf & Sport. MORE
