Marijuana Survey – TAKE A LOOK!

Hey guys,

The Hawks' Herald is doing an article reporting the real story about students' marijuana habits. We are trying to get the facts about just what students' habits are, so we designed a quick, anonymous survey for students to show us their perspective on pot.

Take the survey here.

Please be honest. We do not have any interest in ratting people out or getting anyone in trouble. We simply want an accurate idea of just how big or small of a part marijuana plays in students' lives.

Thanks guys. We really appreciate your help.

Commencement speaker announced

It's official: Roger Williams University has chosen a commencement speaker that may have many students, faculty, and relatives asking "who?"

Educator and author Joan Countryman will speak before nearly 1,000 undergraduates at this year's graduation ceremony, according to an announcement on the school's web page posted sometime over the past few days.

Before her work as interim head of the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa from 2006-07, Countryman ran a private school in RI. She is currently retired and sits on the board of trustees at Sarah Lawrence University. She will be one of four people receiving honorary degrees at the commencement, along with RI senator Jack Reed, businessman Ibrahim Arikan, and RWU board member Jerrold Lavine.

The Chief Justice of Puerto Rico's Supreme court, Federico Hernández Denton, will speak at the Law School graduation where he, attorney Louise Durfee , and US magistrate Jacob Hagopian will also receive honorary law degrees.

Past commencement speakers have included the filmmaker Bobby Farrely, first lady Laura Bush, and track star Jackie Joyner-Kersee.

Immediate action against Tent City

Well it only took less than 24 hours for RWU to put a stop to some outdoor summer fun. An email was sent to Bayside residents explaining the summer policies. Along with the no open container rule was this:

Camping- Please do not set up you tents in the Baside U's. The university is not able to provide any security measures for those individuals sleeping outdoors. Also, maintenance and facilities will be hindered from properly maintaining our outdoor space with tents set up outdoors. *All tents set up will be removed at the owners expense*"

Sorry guys, looks like your city was ruled under a dictatorship.

Tent City

Whitecap residents, including Mike Malmberg and Jesse Dickson, were struck by a little cabin fever and decided to go camping--in the middle of the Bayside Courtyard.

As of this posting they are sleeping in their tents. Score one for student debauchery.
