Re: Dinos threatened, Feb. 3, 2005,
As a fourth year Dino, I am very saddened by the proposal to cut 14 of the 22 athletic teams at the U of C, including Cross Country, Track and Field, Swimming, Wresting and many others. Dino athletics has been a tremendous part of my U of C experience and I could not imagine having one of the only things left that brings interuniversity communities together taken away. For the price of a beer (definitely brontosaurus sized increase), U of C students can help save something that is very important to hundreds of Dino athletes and coaches. I encourage all students to please vote "yes" for the $6 tuition increase in the SU election from February 15-17 to save Dino athletics. If there is a majority "no" vote, some teams could be taken away by next fall.
