What does the College do for WIFI that WIFI can’t do for itself? It is suspected, not much.

Frank and others-

Good point. Since it is not affiliated/ recognized, could WIFI start a go fund me page and raise its own money? As long as it made sure it stated it was not affiliated? Make it about something bigger- like the recognition of Israel’s right to exist on college campuses generally?

Bet it could raise some cash right about now…

I believe that the has CC stated that it recognized uncomfortable learning to control it? Correct DDF?
