As one of the new co-editors for
the News Argus, I can't believe
how fast the summertime has gone
and all the changes that have
occurred on campus.
Our student population has
experienced tremendous growth,
including the record-breaking
number of class of 2012.
Our new SGA president is senior
Harold T. Respass, a political sci
ence major from Charlotte.
Mr. WSSU is Theodis Chun, a
senior mass communications major
from Salisbury; and Miss WSSU is
Latoya Perry a senior marketing
major from Fayetteville.
Two new ram statues have been
added — one at the main entrance
of campus and the other at
Bowman Gray Stadium.
A new video screen was installed
in the Field House. Now fans can
view the WSSU home games from
the stadium seats.
Parking fees for residents are
lower, and gated lots have now
been assigned to the faculty and
The Gamma Lambda chapter of
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. is
back on the yard after a long hiatus
of four years.
The Rams will begin officially
playing in the Mid-Eastern Athletic
Conference in the 2009 season.
The Rams are struggling as they
adjust to competition on a Division
I level. They suffered a heart
breaking 14-8 loss against MEAC
rival NC A&T Sept. 6 and they
lost their first home game by a
field goal in the final seconds of
the game Sept. 12.
Let's hope they will play better
when they receive national expo
sure this year by playing FAMU,
which will air on ESPNU.

You were assigned on-campus housing and reassigned to a hotel. What do you think?
"Trying to eat is the biggest
problem.... It's a waste of
your meal plan."
"Staying in the hotel is not
that bad. My room is cleaned
every three days and they
take out the trash everyday."
"Staying in the hotel is fine,
but it's more of a distraction
when classes are not close."
"The hotel is nice, but the
commute is the hassle"
"It's unfair because we
already made plans or pur
chased things for a room we
didn't get to stay in."
