TSU’s new Radio Station’s first broadcast

Monday morning at 8 am the Wake up Show went on the air. The hosts were Jade Renee, 2D, and Scarb. The show went on until 10 am, then a shuffled playlist played until the next show at 1 pm. The station is in a all new location with brand new state of the art equipment.

This was the first day the radio station went on the air. Wake up Show DJ, Scarb said in an interview “We had some technical difficulties on the first day, but the second day went a lot smoother.” She went on to say that she felt it was a successful aircheck for the radio station and they keep getting better each day.

Thursday the show’s time was given almost entirely to “2D”. He said in an interview he played lots of electronic music and 50’s rock. He also said that he was optimistic for the future of this new radio station. Other student’s say they are excited about features like the post production studio.

Parking on TSU campus

Parking on Tennessee State University’s campus has become more scarce, and administrators are adding more restrictions to the places students can park. Across from Keen Hall on TSU’s campus there is a parking lot that has now been changed to only visitor and VIP parking. To be a visitor, one must go get a pass from the booth in front of the Wilson dormitory. Yet to be a VIP member one must pay $168 to recieve a green decal to be admitted to the parking lot.

TSU security officer Sgt. Perry says this measure is being used to bring in money for the university. Mrs. TSU 2011-2012 Ashleigh Taylor said in an interview “who is being thought of, the student or the administration.” She also went on to point out the fact that students already pay 10 dollars in their tuition for a parking decal. Several other students such as Destine Lacen and Julius Greenlaw have expressed their exasperations with trying to find a parking place on campus.

Destine Lacen made the suggestion that all students could have assigned parking to help solve the issue. Julius Greenlaw says he feels that they should make faculty only parking lots smaller to give more spaces to students. The student affairs office were the administrators to implement this restriction and were unavailable to speak on the matter when I attempted to contact them.
