     Tuition Rally: Thurs, Feb. 9th, 1:00 (AD HUM pit)
     Last year we (students) achieved a tuition freeze for the year, and we also
     called for a review of our tuition. Despite the freeze, we still have the 3rd
     highest tuition in Canada.

     It would be neat to do some kind of stunt in conjunction with the rally.
     We could really rally the troops to get people out and show support.
