It’s possible on our campus to influence change and advocate for things we care about. College students have had an important voice in society in the past, but we shouldn’t relegate that power to history books. If students today can shelve their apathy and overcome fear of failure, they can make big changes in the world around them.

Let’s let the Opposition to the Sale of Hofmann Forest become another example of how students can make a difference! It is not too late!
Woodson talks Hofmann Forest with the Technician – Technician: Editorials.
“I’m going to be real honest with you here. I always am,” Woodson said. “We can’t control everything that happens to the land after we sell it, but we could control the way it was sold, and finding a buyer that had the intent to manage it in a way consistent with the way it’s managed now … Twenty years down the road, I can’t predict what will be happening there and, candidly, if we restrict with covenants the way a person used it in perpetuity, no one would buy it.”
Technician: “So to you, Chancellor Woodson, we apologize. We apologize for not doing the research we should’ve to realize that the conservation of the Hofmann Forest was never a priority for you.”
