Many of you that purchased student athletics tickets voiced concern over a new policy that the Student Government Association (SGA) had implemented. The policy made it a requirement that students show their student ID before being allowed in a football or basketball game with a student ticket. If you had a guest (not a UofL student) with you, that guest had to be accompanied by you into the game. The purpose of the policy was to prevent non-students from using student tickets instead of buying them at the normal purchase price.
Although the policy may be a good one, it was implemented in the summer after students had already purchased their tickets. For this reason the SGA, after further deliberation (and a steady barrage of emails and phone calls from concerned students), decided not to enforce the policy retroactively. This year will serve as an educational year for the policy. It will be enforced next football and basketball season.
If you have any questions regarding the policy, feel free to contact me. Thanks and have a great week.

Congratulations! You are beginning your third week of classes. For those of you who are new to law school, things should be getting into a routine now. For those of you who are returning to law school, you probably feel like you never left because it is all so familiar.
You now have a long weekend that you can look forward to. Use this time wisely to improve your future workload as a law student. Three days can be a blessing for law students who have gotten behind in their reading or who are feeling sleep-deprived. This week's tips will provide suggestions for getting the most out of this weekend.
Tip 1: If you are still getting settled in to your apartment, try to finish all of those tasks by the end of the weekend. Finish unpacking boxes. Finish organizing your study area. Finish the final decorating touches. Starting Tuesday morning, you want to make law school your priority. Even if you are settled in your home, take advantage of the long weekend to get your errands run and to get your space in order.
