What Did We Tell You?

What did we tell you earlier this week in the “The (Baton Rouge) Advocate/LSU Nexus” piece? We said the nest over at LSU was the Manship School of Mass Communication. Well lookie here, y’all, in today’s The (Baton Rouge) Advocate.

Students stand up to cuts

About 300 LSU students came together Thursday night to witness the mysterious “WhatNOW? The Event.”

While many students showed up only out of curiosity about the viral marketing campaign, most ended the night e-mailing state House Speaker Jim Tucker and writing letters to legislators in protest of higher education budget cuts.

The event was organized by some mass communication students and Student Government leaders — with an assist from a few faculty who encouraged student attendance — to start a new student-led political lobbying group, called the Flagship Advocates.

Meanwhile, here’s the rest of the higher ed updates for today.

    Just to be clear: college faculty are not included in the category of “teachers whose salaries are up since 1995.” It is a bit misleading to have that link follow a story on higher education.
