A NOTE ON MONEY

Unlike every other Stanford publication, we don’t take money from the ASSU or the administration. That means that when the administrators come calling (and they do), we owe them nothing.

But like any other student group, we have expenses, and we rely 100% on donations to keep the lights on and the news flowing. Donate today ❤
