OU student petitioning for tree removal; Alden Library’s funding has decreased over the years

Today is Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2019. Here’s what you need to know:

Good Morning,

Petitioning is a worthy cause, and one Ohio University student is hoping 100 signatures is enough.

Nathan Hart, a junior studying journalism, is petitioning for OU to tear down the “stinky” tree outside Schoonover. Hart is hoping 100 signatures will persuade President Duane M. Nellis to take steps to get rid of the tree and “maybe put a nice fern in its place.”

“Our senses have been assaulted by the smelly tree near Schoonover for far too long,” Hart’s petition reads. “Every fall, it deposits its foul stink bombs unto the Earth and unto our fragile, nubile noses. Mr. Nellis, tear down this tree.”

Hart currently has 11 signatures for the effort.
