Help Save the Campus Environment

Flyer circulated on the UNCG campus, November 1997.

HELP SAVE THE CAMPUS ENVIRONMENT

Question 6 on the recent Student Government Association survey reads: “Would you favor constructing a parking lot for resident students behind Moore/Strong Hall? This would not interfere with the University golf course.”

The statement “This would not interfere with the University golf course” is completely false. This parking lot would destroy one of the most beautiful open areas left on campus, an area used for recreation and biology teaching.

YOUR HELP IS NEEDED TO SAVE THIS AREA FROM DESTRUCTION. THIS IS WHAT YOU CAN DO.

Go to the SGA meeting and speak up. Voice your objection to the false information in the survey and your desire to have that area of campus preserved for future generations of students. The meeting is Tuesday, December 2nd, at 7pm in the Claxton Room of the EUC.

Send email to sga@uncg.edu objecting to the false information given in Question 6 and asking why SGA provided false information to students in its survey. Tell them that the campus environment is an irreplaceable resource that should be preserved.

Call the SGA President’s Office at 334-3550, and express your dissatisfaction with Question 6 and ask why SGA provided false information to students in their survey. Tell them that the campus environment should be preserved.

Call or email Vice Chancellor Carol Disque (334-5099, csdisque@uncg.edu), who is head of Student Affairs and so oversees the SGA. Ask why the SGA is making false statements in its student surveys. Say that the campus environment is important to you and should be important to the university administration.

Speak to any SGA delegates you know and express your view.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO ACT NOW. Our campus has lost more natural areas in the past six months than it had in the previous 20 years. We cannot afford to lose any more.
