On Nov. 24 UCLA students marched around campus in protest of a grand jury's decision not to indict Darren Wilson, the white police officer who shot and killed unarmed black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson Mo. The protesters entered Bruin Plate and were greeted by boos and jeers from students eating in the dining hall. How do you feel about this matter?
The protesters should not have entered the dining hall in the first place; it is not a public space and the protest only made things difficult for employees working and students trying to eat. (42%, 44 Votes)
The students who booed were insensitive and disrespectful, betraying a lack of concern for national issues and for other students. (30%, 31 Votes)
While the protesters should not have disrupted dinner in the dining hall, students should have been more respectful of their decision to do so. (26%, 27 Votes)

In the past few weeks, multiple students at various dining locations at UCLA have found bugs in their food. The UCLA Office of Environmental, Health and Safety investigated the reports of the bugs, but said they found no serious health concerns in the dining halls where the bugs were found. How do you feel about this matter?
The reports of bugs need to be taken more seriously by UCLA. The reports have severely impacted where I choose to eat at UCLA. (53%, 133 Votes)
While the reports raise some cause for concern, they did not majorly influence where I eat. (32%, 81 Votes)

UC President Janet Napolitano recently announced that the UC may increase tuition by up to five percent over each of the next five years. Do you think the UC is justified for proposing a tuition hike?
No, the UC should have looked for alternate sources of funding before resorting to a tuition increase. (80%, 893 Votes)
Yes, the increase is necessary to cover rising costs and increase enrollment of California residents. (11%, 123 Votes)
Yes, but the UC should have been more transparent in informing students about the increase. (7%, 76 Votes)

At a USAC meeting on Nov. 5, council members decided to set new regulations for the upcoming divestment resolution meeting, including a two-hour time limit for public comments and increased restrictions on which members of the press and public can attend the meeting. How do you feel about this matter?
The new restrictions don't allow all students at UCLA to have an equal voice in decisions made by their student government. (49%, 100 Votes)
The new restrictions are necessary to prevent the high levels of animosity that arose from last year's divestment resolution. (40%, 81 Votes)
I don't know how I feel about this matter. (6%, 12 Votes)
The council should not have enacted these new restrictions because while they could potentially inhibit some of the controversy from last year's resolution, there is no guarantee of that. (5%, 12 Votes)

At a USAC meeting on Oct. 28, council unanimously voted to decrease Student Organizations Operational Fund allocations for student clubs by about $100 this year. Each club that applied for SOOF funds this year will receive on average about $230 to host retreats, advertise for their club, etc. How do you feel about this matter?
Even though some student groups don't spend the full amount of money allocated to them, other groups are suffering under the cuts, signifying a need to more accurately distribute funds. (45%, 94 Votes)
75 percent of student groups don't end up spending the money allocated to them, so the decrease won't have substantial effects on the groups. (26%, 54 Votes)
Student groups rely on these funds to operate successfully, the drop in funding will curtail their ability to put on campus events and other programs. (23%, 48 Votes)
I don't know how I feel about this matter. (6%, 14 Votes)
