UCSC To Build New 4000 Seat Theatre??

Students voting until May 23 on whether to build new multi use auditorium.
UCSC'S NEW MULTI USE PERFORMING SPORTS CENTER.

UCSC students are voting this very week on whether to increase their own student fees by a sizeable amount to fund a whole lot of things. One that I found really hot was the 4,000 seat multi use center. Every other UC campus has some large indoor auditorium UCSC only has the 450 seat Mainstage theatre. The benefits are staggering, so is the entire slate of things they are voting on. be sure to go to currents.ucsc.edu/04-05/05-16/vote.asp and read it carefully before you get all concerned about traffic and where the parking will be. At least we won't have to fight off developers like Rye Kelley who wanted to build us a performing arts center in exchange for the much defeated Wingspread Development, or ridiculous ideas like fixing the Civic.

UCSC STUDENTS: DO YOU WANT OVER $700/YR. IN NEW FEES?

VOTE NO ON MEASURES 19, 20 & 21
UCSC Elections - May 17-23 - elections.ucsc.edu

Athletes Against Unreasonable Fees Opposes the New
“Student Life? Referendums:

Measure 19: a new indoor events center esp. for sports

Measure 20: a $70 fee that would go specifically to
fund sports teams
Measure 21: a new outdoor sports facility

WE OPPOSE THESE MEASURES BECAUSE
• If passed, these referendums will raise your fees
over $700 per year. This is IN ADDITION to the annual
student fee increase made by the university.

• The “Student Life? Referendums come at a time when
important academic programs are being slashed from
UCSC.

• The success of our current sports teams has shown
that we do not need huge additional fees to have
strong athletic programs.

• Many schools nation-wide have shown that there are
other ways to fund sports besides new student fees.

• The money generated by these fees will be controlled
by the administrators, NOT the students.

• These new unneeded fees will negatively affect the
diversity of students on this campus.

Athletes Against Unreasonable Fees wants the
University to retain its character as a unique liberal
arts college with successful athletic teams rather
than make such extreme changes that would make it
another faceless D-I sports university. We believe
that our sports teams can be successful in our
endeavors while maintaining the integrity and the
character unique to UC Santa Cruz.

who wants this crap?

I came to city on a hill vs berk for a reason. If I wanted to spend my saturdays attending pep rallies I'd have gone to UCLA. I like sports up here but I don't want some uber large stadium complex. And I don't want to pay for it either.
 

Mallification of UCSCorp

In the same way that most shopping malls look essentially the same, the ever-increasing corporatization of our public universities leads to their standardization/mallification.

Unless students and others engage in sustained resistance, you can expect the trend to continue.
 

The Spring 2005 election is now closed.

Results will be posted by May 30, 2005
