everyone, thanks for your replies, advice, and general support.

it's been tough here w/ all of the anti-fem sentiment that's so prevalent
here on campus.

as of right now, we are gathering support from other organizations,
speaking to university officials, and gathering more information.

it's great to know that i'm not delusional when i and other students here
think that there's something terribly wrong with this picture.

in response to martin's post, aggies are students and alumni of texas a&m
university ( a&m = agricultural & mechanical, somewhat of an archaic name
dating back to its original purpose) while 'cut site' is the location
where the trees are cut down at.

thanks again to everyone!

i'll keep you guys updated.
