The Associated Students of the University of Missouri student fee bill was passed, meaning that UMKC students will continue to pay .15 cents per credit hour for the next four years to keep ASUM up and running.

UMKC’s LGBTQIA association will hold an evening of festivities from 5-9 p.m. in the university walkway on April 11 to combat non-inclusive speech. They want to make sure that everyone at UMKC feels welcome and safe on campus.

Strategic marketing executive Kim West also spoke at the meeting, discussing the new “Roos are everywhere” campaign and the school’s recruitment efforts in Kansas.
