|Scott Tingley / Tufts Daily | Election Day: 9/20/2011|
In an effort coordinated with an upperclassmen TCU Senator, Yulia, private discussions were held this weekend debating the merits of the program. The results of those sessions included a comprehensive Op-Ed published in Monday's Daily, just one day before the student body would vote on the new referendum. The opinion piece, "No deal: the hidden costs of Referendum 1" details our objections to the acquisition, and has already achieved the status of third-most-popular Daily article online, following the official Daily objective piece on the program.
Surprisingly, the Daily went so far as to endorse our position, publishing their own editorial piece urging students to "vote no on Referendum 1," calling it "a solution to a problem that doesn't exist." The cartoon of the day also endorsed this position.

I won't spend space here arguing against the referendum, but Jumbos should read through the material linked to in this post for more information. The election begins in under one hour, online: https://webcenter.studentservices.tufts.edu/
