Welcome back, students
When Chico State and Butte College are in session, the whole community
knows. Restaurants have more patrons, shops and boutiques get more traffic,
and the streets in general--especially those surrounding campus and
downtown--are a lot more lively.
We've put together a nice package of stories this week aimed at getting
everyone back into the school frame of mind. So, if you're interested in
what's going on with the education budget (and tuition prices!), students
interning on Alcatraz Island, the state of Chico State's Journalism
Department or a new Diversity Resource Guide, we've got you covered.
Have you heard that drinking on the river could be banned for Labor Day?
We'll fill you in. Did you know that Butte College is the first U.S.
college to go grid positive? Or that Chico State's Student Health Service
is now a Family PACT provider? (You do now!)
