Help me get winter tag reinstated (UCSD)

<p>So Im sure some of you noticed they cancelled winter TAG for 2011 without telling anyone. Well I am lucky enough to have a family member work at UCSD and I brought it to her attention and she forwarded the issue to the vice chancellor who has forwarded it to the admissions office and they are currently reviewing it. I brought up the point that minorities make up a large portion of community college students, and since UCSD has had all this drama with race relations I feel it could only benefit them to increase CC transfers back to normal. </p>

<p>Apparently the admission people thought it was too much work to have winter transfers(even though its only tag people).</p>

<p>So if you guys could email the chancellor and just tell her that there is alot of interest in UCSD winter TAG, that would be really cool.</p>

<p>I know its a long shot..but it couldnt hurt </p>

<p><a href="mailto:chancellor@ucsd.edu">chancellor@ucsd.edu</a></p>

<p>Her name is Mary Anne Fox</p>

<p>Theres a lot of interest in UCSD winter tag?</p>

<p>UCSD has racial problems? i never heard that. care to elaborate?</p>

<p>^ too many asains lol just kidding i dont really know. I think it was because of the affirmative action thing ?</p>

<p>Racial Problems</p>

<p>1) "Compton Cookout" party during black history month
Fraternity</a> Mocks Black History Month With "Compton Cookout" - KTLA
2) A noose was found inside a library somewhere
A</a> Noose Found in UCSD Library - The Los Angeles Sentinel
3) a white KKK style hood was found somewhere
KKK</a> Hood Found Hanging at UCSD, Site of 'Compton Cookout' - KTLA</p>

<p>All 3 of those were way overblown. There aren't 'race problems,' the BSU just wants you to think so.</p>

<p>They aren't race problems, they're idiot problems. In a group as large as the UCSD student body, there's bound to be a few idiots among them. I don't blame the idiots for being idiots, I blame the protesters because they should know better.</p>

<p>UCSD might perhaps be vindicated by bestowing $10,000 in compensation to the Black Student Union.</p>

<p>Did you read the BSU's 32 "demands"? Some people clearly did not get the memo about the california school system being broke.</p>

<p>No matter. Justice must be served.</p>

<p>justice for what? For a couple of people being idiots? Definitely agree with Cali Trumpet on this one. Half my family is black and I still find those demands insane. Personally I don't even think someones race should be a factor in anything, especially education.</p>

<p>Lol, I have a feeling this thread is going to reach multiple pages due to people talking about affirmative action again.
Staying on point: I highly doubt you will get anywhere with that approach, but I think you already know that. Good luck!
Off topic: The whole thing is blown out of proportion. The demands are ridiculous. I know here at UCSC that there is a police investigation because somebody scribbled a noose on a bathroom stall. Although the one at UCSD noose-in-library actually disturbed me, the SC one is just stupid. Go back to how things were and just fight about budget cuts, not racism.</p>

<p>that sh^t shouldnt be happening, i think they should invest the money..if UCSD is going to pay up...they should invest it on how to eradicate archaic crap like nooses and kkk caps.
they should invest that money in their social science department and do some genuine research.</p>

<p>sh^t like this is disgusting.</p>

<p>Where are they getting this money from? They can't afford to do winter admissions, hence the start of this thread. UCs do not have money to blow at this point, maybe they can afford to do that when the economy is up again.</p>

<p>People are going to be stupid no matter what you do... do we really want to waste money on analyzing why some people do the things they do?</p>

<p>LOL, I was only joking the whole time--I thought my pithy statements were an indication. I guess not. </p>

<p>I haven't even read BSU's demands, can someone post a link to them? I didn't know they would be so seemingly outrageous!</p>

<p>Why are people so god damn insecure? Okay, so what if a few idiots did some idiotic, semi-racist things on your school campus. Move the ***** on and go do something real.</p>
