BGSU ROOM AND BOARD

Bowling Green State University students will pay a little more to live on campus next year. BGSU trustees today approved a 2.37 percent room and board increase today. A spokesperson says the new rates still rank Bowling Green fifth lowest among Ohio's 13 universities. University of Toledo leaders approved a freeze on tuition, housing and meal plans late last year.

EXPIRED MEDICINES

University of Toledo students are working to get expired medications out of your cabinets. Doctors say the outdated medicine may not work and could even be dangerous. That's why UT students are taking part in the "Script Your Future" campaign. Pharmacy student Christian Jeric says, "If you flush all your medications, it can contaminate the water supply and infect the environment and harm people." Students will be at the Walgreens on Reynolds and Dorr next Friday from 3pm until 7pm.
