USG wants an explanation

Members of Undergraduate Student Government decided at yesterday’s meeting that the organization will ask the Bursar’s Office for an explanation on the recent billing changes.

Jared Smith, senator for commuter and off-campus students, said USG will invite a representative from the Bursar’s Office to attend its meeting Oct. 28. He said USG wants to know why the university will charge a 2.9 percent on every credit or debit card payment and will no longer accept Visa.

During the USG public meeting last night, Ronnie McArdle, director of governmental affairs, said these changes will make it more difficult for students to attend college.

Smith said the Bursar’s Office did not notify USG about its new policies.

Members of USG also addressed the communication and advertising issues the organization has faced throughout the semester.

Smith said USG will create a flier that will inform Kent State students about the organization.
