Indiana Daily Student

IUSA did their homework

Friday's editorial "'Work hard' needs work" criticized members of the IU Student Association for not doing its research. \nToday, we need to apply the same criticism to the Indiana Daily Student. \nThe editorial asked IUSA to collect hard facts before making big promises. To their credit, the student group had the numbers and even submitted them to the IDS to better stake their claim. But Friday's opinion was written without that information.\nThe cost of keeping the undergraduate side of the Main Library open until 2 a.m. Sunday-Thursday is $500, student body vice president Judd Arnold said in an e-mail to the IDS Oct. 10. That information was missing from the editorial. The information was also missing from the editorial board meeting that decided Friday's staff opinion.\nWe regret the oversight.
