One Question Down. January 28, 2012 The big question that has consumed the union (and The Watch) since the beginning of the year was answered last week. With the ‘yes’ vote from the student body, the union will move ahead with opening the King’s Galley canteen, maybe even by the end of the month (pg. […]

We may not be proper journalists, but we sure do spend a lot of time on Youtube. As oral exams approach, we thought FYPers might need a hand with some of the larger concepts. Based on nothing other than the title of the sections, here are some study tools. The Ancient World: Have You Ever […]

And we’ve got more for you: student protests, an independent student radio station, and a rugby team holding its own in the university league. And King’s students never seem to get […]
FYP Tutor and Don Dr. Matthew Furlong believes in the chapel By Matthew Furlong -October 28th, 2011 I want to begin with two disclaimers: This is not a polemic. I write only on my own behalf. King’s faces many challenges, the most immediately visible of which right now is our chaplaincy’s uncertain future. The Diocese […]
On King’s Financial Future Dear students and fellow kingspeople, We are in threatening fiscal straits. Currently, a group called the Financial Sustainability Committee (FSC), put together by President Leavitt, is tasked with navigating King’s into calmer waters. Soon, they will be hosting town hall meetings and consultations, with the goal of making recommendations to the […]
Money’s Tight Everywhere By Evelyn Hornbeck and Charlotte Harrison -October 28th, 2011 Occupy movements across North America have proven that there’s a growing concern for how money is being spent by the guys who drive big wooden desks, but cash is a cause for concern around campus, too. The King’s chapel is being squeezed and […]
