The Associated Students of the University of Hawaii (ASUH) voted down the chancellor's proposed athletic fee last semester.
The chancellor has decided to put the matter before the Board of Regents (BOR), completely disregarding that previous ASUH vote.
On top of that, she's decided to ask the BOR to meet and decide on the matter in June - just in time for the student body to be gone, or in complete "Summer Mode." Convenient, neh?
Don't get me wrong, I don't mind the athletic fee. I mean, hey, free access to all the sporting events! But when ASUH votes something down, and the chancellor decides to do it anyway, it's a bit disheartening. Thanks, Virginia. You make such good comic fodder.
