Students for a Democratic Society are ready to make a change

Students for a Democratic Society has come back to OU after almost 40 years. Students may soon see changes at the university ranging everywhere from library hours to a new student newspaper.

The Students for a Democratic Society, SDS, lead the student movements throughout the 1960s, and was kicked of the OU campus in its first life. Now a new group of students have restarted the club with all new goals in mind. Their goals range from the state legislature to everyday problems existing at OU.

"I joined the new SDS to help develop some intellectual discourse here on campus," Nick Stanley, freshman, said. "Also, to create a place where students can ask questions."

The SDS will be having their next meeting 7:00 pm. Monday, Feb. 16, 2009 in the lobby of Dale Hall. You can learn more about this organization on their facebook group: OU Students for a Democratic Society.
