NE: Talkin’ Tuition Equity up in here

19.41

NE: How many times will Sam Dotters-Katz say “Y’all”?

20.37

NE: Mubaya on stipend model, “I’ve said this for 2 years now, it’s screwing us over,” talks about programs asking for stipends, then want more programming funds, then don’t do anything with it. Basically, the Oregon Commentator kicks ass for working on complete student-volunteer basis.
