What Happened To The Nick Beard Opinion Board?
If you’ve walked by the library, then you might have noticed a bulletin board with a plaque directly over it. This is the Nick Beard Opinion Board. Recently, however, it has been empty. When asked about this, Jasper Meyer (who is the Council’s assistant moderator and a member of the ad hoc committee in charge of maintaining the board) said, “This issue is a result of Council leadership not checking the box frequently enough.” He also apologized to any students who may have been frustrated by this. The box for submissions is usually checked at the beginning of each week, and then screened for validity before the accepted submissions are posted on the board. This emptiness doesn’t mean that submissions aren’t being accepted. If you wish to submit something to the Opinion Board, read the guidelines and the put your submissions in the submissions box. In the future, we can expect to see more student submissions posted on the board.
