YAL at UTSA took on the “Green Monster” this week on campus.
UTSA, like most other Texas universities, had a student government ballot vote in which the student body could vote on allocating a fee to a green fund. While we have NO problem going green, we do have a problem with people trying to take our money and spend it for us. We encouraged voluntary donations over a mandate, and advocated for working within the existing budget of the University to cut cost. The results are not in yet (will be on noon Monday), but the fight was a good one. The fee has been pasted virtually everwhere, including Texas A&M, where students also fought the change.
Come check out the pictures and what’s going on at an up and coming YAL chapter:
