A limited-liability corporation owned by a former IU Student Association executive received $18,309 of mandatory student fees last year to develop a GPS bus-tracking system.
Since 1907, corporations have been restricted by how much they can give to political campaigns. That is, until now.
As of last week, spending by outside organizations to influence congressional elections is up more than 60 percent compared to the same period in 2006, according to a report by the Sunlight Foundation.
Dean of Students Dick McKaig could teach a class on getting pied in the face.
The self-proclaimed “expert” could lecture for hours on how the first three or four pies taste good, or how the Cool Whip eventually gets rancid, or how your clothes get stiff.
“I’ve had many a T-shirt or hat that came out rather starched from having done a pie-in-the-face routine,” McKaig said.
One in five college students comes to class “often or very often”
without completing required readings or assignments, according to a
national survey of college students.
