Editorial: SGA election bylaws need revision

On December 1 every year, SGA candidates participate in Candidate Orientation and take the Election Law Test, thus beginning the short but significant process of becoming a part of Auburn's student government.  After over a month of idleness, campaign preparation begins January 14 and formal campaigning begins February 3. Six days later, voting begins and the creation week of student government winds down to a close, assuming all elections end with winners with majorities.  We implore the SGA to revise the current model of elections in order to increase student voter turnout and to give students a better chance to scope out the candidates' platforms.  But credit must be given where credit is due.

It is time to change the meal plan

Each semester, Auburn students who live on campus are forced to pay $995 for a meal plan and off campus students pay $300 for theirs. Students are being synthetically induced to increase demand for university sanctioned fast food restaurants such as Chick-Fil-A, Papa Johns and Panda Express.
