On Monday, tickets for the ASI Big Event for 2018 went on sale. The line of students attempting to receive the Disneyland tickets was ridiculous, stretching from the USU almost to the Library.

This phrase, especially when taken out of context, did not in any way reflect my true thoughts and feelings about this year’s ceremonies. For this inaccuracy, I sincerely apologize to students, faculty and staff....
