Save La Pirogue

This petition had 443 supporters

Nicholls State University administration plans to discontinue funding for the university yearbook, La Pirogue. This decision was made by the University of Louisiana System Board of Supervisors on Thursday, February 23, 2017. 

After the decision was made, the university announced two individual $5 fees to be added to students' charges. These fees are said to be used for funding the Student Success and QEP programs here at Nicholls. However, Nicholls administration has yet to provide the goals and plans to be accomplished by using the new fees. 

Along with this decision, Nicholls administration plans to strip the account of La Pirogue, which holds nearly half a million dollars, and use it to the university's advantage. However, this money was accumulated by students with intentions of solely donating the funding towards the yearbook. 

All of these decisions have been made without informing students or asking them for their opinions. Thus, their voices have been lost. 

This petition is to address the administrative decisions for their unethical actions and attempt to save both the yearbook and its account. Nicholls students, alumni, and community are encouraged to add their name in order to stand against the decisions.
