Michael Moore to speak at UNR in October

Michael Moore to speak at UNR in October: "Michael Moore is on his way to the University of Nevada, Reno, after the student senate Wednesday approved money for his visit next month.

The 21 senators of the Associated Students University of Nevada Senators voted unanimously to give $6,300 to Flipside - the ASUN Programming Board — to bring the controversial film director to Lawlor Events Center at 8 p.m. on Oct. 13.

“I’m very excited,” said Jacque Pelham, a 23-year old UNR political science student who graduated last year. “It will bring focus to political campaigns even if people disagree with his views.”

But some feel the money from student fees should be used for strictly university projects. People who attend UNR pay $2.85 per credit toward student fees.
