22 Feb

Last meeting before spring break so we’ll make it something very relevant to UF students.

Egyptian president resigns

13 Feb

Friday Egypt’s president, Hosni Mubarak, resigned as president. It’s amazing to watch how an idea can form from internet discourses to set in motion such life-altering events.

We’re baaaack *SPRING2011*

10 Jan

Hope everyone had a great holiday, but the spring semester has started and, alas, school has begun again.  But the good news means…MEDIA UNDERGROUND will be coming back!

Over the break, we’ve been thinking of some awesome topics for meetings for you guys.  But we won’t be starting meetings for a week of so, not until we do some tabling.  The Student Organization Fair is January 20 & 21 between 10am-2pm, but we’ll only be there for one of them.  We don’t know what day we’ll be tabling yet, but you can bet it’ll be one of those days.

Keep checking our website for more updates about what day we’ll be tabling and when are first meeting of the semester will be.
