2018 Grad Student Levy
On April 4th and 5th Grad Students of UNBC will get the chance to vote on a Levy, via email, that would bring in a $10 media subscription fee. $5 would go to CFUR Radio, and the other $5 would go to Over the Edge, the campus newspaper.
We need the levy to engage and support the grad students of UNBC. With this levy we can increase both opportunities for grad students and coverage on grad events and organizations.
