In keeping with our reckless, devil-may-careimage, our of-ﬁce has absolutely no concrete information on the
’sformative years readily available. What follows is the storythat’s been passed down from editor to editor for over fortyyears.In the late 1950s, the University of Regina planned the con-struction of several new buildings on the campus grounds.One of these proposed buildings was a bell tower on the aca-demic green. If you look out on the academic green today,the ﬁrst thing you’ll notice is that it has absolutely nothingresembling a bell tower.The University never got a bell tower, but what it did getwas the
,anewspaper that serves as a symbolic belltower on campus, a loud and clear voice belonging to eachand every student.

With the URSUelection under- way,it might be good to re-ﬂect on why students should be running for a position withURSU.The slate “Students for Students”seems to get thateven though their name is ter-rible.No,wait,that’s just a ter-rible name and I can’t get over it.Anyway,here’s some adviceif you’re a candidate.
