STUDENT CAMPAIGN: Last year, Congress decided that anyone who gets a drug conviction, no matter how minor and no matter what the circumstances, would LOSE FINANCIAL AID. Student governments across the nation have called for repeal of this counterproductive law, and the issue and the campaign have been widely covered in the campus media, as well as in mainstream media such as the Boston Globe, the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram and the leading outlet of the higher education community, The Chronicle of Higher Education.

Students at over 200 campuses across the nation are involved in the Higher Education Act Reform Campaign, and your help is needed too! Please visit to learn more, or contact Kris Lotlikar at (202) 293-8340 or [email protected] to request an activist packet. (The U-Net site was last updated before the summer, and will be updated with the latest information by next week, but there is a lot of good information there now, so please take a look!) Last but not least, for students and all concerned parties, please sign our online petition to Congress at if you haven't already.
