Dusty Miller, you have a call on line 3

A few months ago OSPIRG was supposed to move out of its office down in the Survival Center. By Thanksgiving, in fact. Further, EMU Director Dusty Miller told me that OSPIRG was no longer to do anymore official business inside its former office as it is no longer a student group.

Needless to say, I figured (as did everyone else) that this wouldn’t stop OSPIRG from using the Survival Center as their de facto office anyways. No, instead they would probably just keep meeting down there. In fact they aren’t even shy about it. Their twitter feed today read:

“URGENT!!! I need everyone in OSPIRG to meet in the Survival Center today to input the voter pledge cards onto a spreadsheet! We’ll make it a DATABASE-PARTY! 5:30 in the Survival Center!”

As the ASUO Controllers office is across from the Survival Center, I do frequent that part of the building and I have indeed seen OSPIRG’s members lurking around the EMU. What is worrying to me is their apparent usage of the Survival Center despite University orders not to do so.

Of course, I’m sure there will be responses like “it wasn’t official business” or “we were invited to use the space by the Insurgent” or some other tedious, transparent lie.

No one’s fooled.

    Is Straub under that proverbial umbrella as well? OSPIRG is meeting somewhere in Straub today for a “kick-off” meeting….

    The survival center the organization is an umbrella group, from which many group have started.
