Candidates face off in debate

The Student Association presidential candidates went head to head Friday night in a debate hosted by the Thresher in the McMurtry College commons. The question-and-answer format featured questions from the moderators and audience, rebuttal and opening and closing statements.

Vote for me, and I’ll fight for you

Candidates for Student Association president always write the same things in these op-eds about wanting to find a way to work with the college system, increase communication with the student body and enhance the Rice experience (whatever the hell that means). While these are certainly important and admirable goals, I am not going to pander to you like that or waste your time because the stakes are too high.

A past to shape the future

Over the next week and a half, I will share my goals and vision for the next SA term in almost every place imaginable on campus. However, these ideas will only be thoughts without you understanding who I am and why I think I would be good for Rice.

OPINION 2/9/16 9:13pm

Stereotyping cheaters unacceptable

Until last Tuesday, I couldn’t say I was genuinely disappointed in a sizable number of Rice students. Sure, there were some basketball and football games I would’ve liked to see with a fuller student section, but I had never been angry at the Rice community or embarrassed to say I was a part of it.
