Rebel Yell Copies Stolen for Homecoming Float Construction

Editors at The Rebel Yell report that members of UNLV’s Greek commuity stole hundreds (possibly thousands) of copies of the student newspaper recently to help construct a float used in a homecoming event this past weekend.



Is float construction merely a cover, however, for a larger Greek grudge?  As the editorial shared:


For the last couple of weeks, representatives of the Greek community have been persistently requesting to have a special page in every issue of the Rebel Yell solely dedicated to Greek community activities, events, updates, et cetera.  The Greeks make up less than 2 percent of the student population at UNLV, so we didn’t necessarily think that this merited devoting a special page to Greek Life in every issue or even every other issue. This may have strained relations with Greeks, but we still hope it was sheer laziness that contributed to their use of our newspapers to make paper maché.
