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.

The University of Regina’s 2011-2012 school year in review
Where were you when students participated in the National Day of Action,sat in at the Board of Governors meeting,and parked like dicks in the crescents?
The 2011-2012 school year is al-most done and this one was just aseventful as any other year.The University of Regina wasabundant with the activist spiritthis year,led by the Unisversity of Regina Students’ Union and theRegina Public Interest ResearchGroup (RPIRG), and some studentleaders. The year started off withabang, with the Occupy WallStreet movement sweeping acrossthe continent. There were Occupyprotests throughout Regina andseveral werestaged on campus.The “99 per cent” came to the Ad-Hum pit on Nov.10 to educate themasses.“Our main message at theteach-in is mostly around home-lessness in our city ,” one occupiersaid. Although the movement waswidespread, it still tackled issuesclose to home.Activism started closer tohome with the Our Futureis Nowcampaign led by URSU PresidentKent Peterson. This conveniently-timed movement was meant toput pressure on provincial politi-cal parties to make changes ontheir platforms in order to encour-age student voting for the fallelection.In the winter semester,Peterson continued to inspire thestudent body with the Feb. 1. AllOut peaceful protest on theNational Day of Action, whichwas held to ensure equal opportu-nities for current and prospectivestudents. There was a march tothe First Nations University,fol-lowed by some empoweringspeeches and a free lunch.The All Out protest spoke outexplicitly about making educationmore accessible for aboriginal stu-dents by raising a cap on fund-ing. However,therewas a greaterfocus on making changes to thecurrent education system. Julianne Beaudin-Herney be-gan her petition to makeIndigenous Studies a course re-quirement for all students on Nov.7and the petition has spreadacross the country. She continuesto meet with deans and adminis-trators at our university and oth-ers in Canada, with the slogan,“We need to learn about our ownholocaust.”In the winter semester, therewas RPRIG’s annual Apathy intoAction conference, which soughtto educate students on social is-sues. Other winter events in-cluded Israeli Apartheid Week and Five Days for the Homeless.In the 2011-2012 school year,students, faculty members, andadministrators at the U of R madeit clear they weren’t going to sit byand watch things happen.Sadly,thereweresome situa-tions where we didn’t have achoice but to do so. At the start of the year, many students and staff members were affected by thedeath of Dr. Lloyd Barber, the sec-ond president of the University of Regina. Over 800 people paidtheir respects at his memorialservice, which signifies the impactBarber had on the University of Regina.In other situations, however,students in particular stood upand made the university adminis-tration listen. In order to resolvegrowing difficulties with parkingon campus, the university limitedthe number of parking passes is-sued this year and raised the finesfor improper parking. In responseto the huge number of complaintsreceived, in part due to an URSUcampaign launched during thefirst week of classes in the fall se-mester, the administration quicklyagreed to hold an open forum onSept. 23, wherestudents weregiven an opportunity to speak outabout the parking troubles to uni-versity president VianneTimmons.Students suggested a varietyof solutions, including a shuttleservice from nearby landmarks, arebate for students who carpool,and to lower the prices at parkingmeters. However,the second se-mester saw parking problemsworsen, if anything, as winter se-mester parking passes sold outwithin 24 hours of going on sale.Some of the issues that theuniversity faced this year hadtheir roots outside of the build-ing.Students at SIAST began theirschool year in a much more star-tling way – they arrived at theirclasses to find their instructorshad gone on strike. The frustra-tion educators felt at our neigh- bour’s campus caused somestudents to fear a similar strikewas on its way at the university.This year, the province cele- brated an unwanted anniversary –five years had passed since a
article dubbed Regina’sNorth Central as the worst neigh- bourhood in the country.However, the article had donesome good things for the city, as it brought attention to some prob-lems that had been pushed asideand brought out some rarely-seenloyalty to the city.The
article simply drew attention tothe fact that so much crime could be concentrated into such a smallarea.However, despite the positivechanges Regina has seen, anothershocking statistic was released inco-ordination with National AIDSDay in December.The rates of HIV are almost twice the nationalaverage in our province and this isnot a passing problem.As All Nations Hope AIDSNetwork worker Margaret Poitrastold the
 ,“There is a lot of stigma, ignorance, and discrimi-nation with addiction.”More recently, Saskatchewanhas been surprised by some of thedecisions Brad Wall’s governmenthas made with the budget for theprovince. Asizeable amount of money has been put towards in-creasing the number of politiciansin the province and building astatue in front of the legislature.Trent Wotherspoon, ND financecritic, said the government is es-sentially “making cuts and reduc-tions and impacts on everydayfamilies across Saskatchewan.”Similarly, there has been awave of protest toward the gov-ernment’s decision to cut the filmtax credit, which has resulted in amultitude of videos and events tospark awareness of the impact thiswill have on Saskatchewan resi-dents.Despite the abundance of news hitting the province thisyear, there have been some majornewsworthy events at theUniversity of Regina, too.In September,students sawthe revitalized food services oncampus as management movedfrom Aramark to Chartwells.Fewer vegetarian options were of-fered, prices were raised, and stu-dents on campus on weekendswerediscontent with a limitedweekend selection for theirmandatory meal cards. But, wedid get another Tim Horton’s,which almost eased the glut at theone in Riddell Centre.One story covered in the
wound up, in part, in-volving the
itself. Afterthe university’s boardof gover-nors struck down a motion tomake their meetings open to thepublic, the paper organized a sit-in. In response, the boardmovedthe time of their meeting up byan hour and got campus securityto escort boardmembers to andfrom the boardroom. Shortly be-forethe meeting commenced, boardchair Paul McLellan cameout to meet the assembled stu-dents and accept letters addressedon behalf of the
to the boardfrom members of theCanadian University Press.Finally, unless you have some-how been living under a rock forthe past three weeks, you mustknow that we have elected a newstudent union for next year. Thisyear’s election saw a variety of candidates for president, with car-toon character Snowy Bear givinghis competition a bit of a scare.The elected members of the unionrepresent a split slate, but mem- bers from both slates have empha-sized that they plan to act not astwo slates but one executive in thefall.Well, we’ll see how that goes.
