  • Deliberative Opinion Poll: More Affordable Education

    On Monday, two-hundred Stetson students were invited to participate in a deliberative opinion poll as an initiative to involve students in the university's politics. The main focus: how do we make a Stetson education more affordable? The poll was put on by a combination of students and faculty, with the idea sparked by class discussions of "participatory democracy" in a Stetson course titled Community Organizing for Social Change. This particular poll was meant as a "test run" to see if a greater Volusia County Deliberative Opinion Poll would be effective. The whole event lasted for three hours, and provided cultural credit and free food for those who participated. A large amount of students turned out for the event, as well as faculty members, representatives from multiple student organizations, and outside media.

    The White Tie Affair

    Hailing from Chicago, Illinois, The White Tie Affair has emerged as a force to be reckoned with.  Their debut album "Walk This Way" includes their hit singles "Allow Me to Introduce Myself… Mr. Right" and "Candle (Sick and Tired)."  Last year, they were asked to perform at the Playboy Mansion for their Pajama Party.  They've recently been touring the states with Lady Gaga, and summer will find them rocking the stages of Warped Tour.

    Before their April 6 performance at the House of Blues Orlando, the four members of the band (Sean P, Chris, Ryan, and Tim) met with me to discuss their roots, tour life, and rocking out inside the gates of the Playboy Mansion.

    From the selection of Wendy Libby as Stetson's first woman President, to the physical changes we've seen on campus, the 125th anniversary of our university has certainly been a year of transformation. Now, another transformation is in the works for Stetson, as SGA has their elections for vice-president in the coming weeks.
