WKU is teeming with diversity, but do the student organizations reflect the composition of the school?

    PART TWO: GO TO THAT BARBECUE

    PART TWO: GO TO THAT BARBECUE

    Okay, so you’ve got an RSO. Are all of your problems solved? Not necessarily. Some student groups still face discrimination despite having some kind of organizational solidarity.

    The online version of this story has the following headline: “Black Student Alliance to celebrate Black History Month with movie screenings and more.” When the same feature made it to the print edition of the WKU Herald the first week of February, the headline omitted the “Black” in “Black Student Alliance.”

    The February 12th issue of the Herald corrected the error, but at least one BSA associate says that was the only thing the newspaper may have gotten wrong. She said the Herald representatives promised frontpage features for the whole month but failed to deliver. Was this an editorial issue? Or the result of potential bias?
