I am proud to call the number one public university in the world my alma mater. I like that this initiative was founded by students who cared about helping one another out and finding out of the box ways to help members of the community survive. Go Bears!
Sadly, the fact that a food pantry is necessary is also another sad reminder of the negative effects of cutting government funds to state run public universities. I like what Ms. Mulder had to say:
“It’s all about educational equity,” says Ms. Mulder. “Students who face the biggest hurdles to get here also have the biggest hurdles to stay.”
