Facebook Page Causing Controversy at U of I

URBANA -- A Facebook page is stirring up controversy at the University of Illinois.
    It's fun and witty but can be seen as offensive.  The Illinois Student Senate recieved complaints after the University of Illinois Meme's Facebook page was created. Some students didn't like the artwork.  So they are voting tonight to try and clean it up.
    The ISS wants the creator to monitor the page so students don't get the wrong idea. They also think the page can promote diversity in the end.
    The creator says no matter what the ISS votes tonight, he won't be deleting the page. He already monitors the page and says if he finds an offensive post, the person is banned.
    The Illinois Student Senate votes tonight at 7:00 on the third floor of the Levi's Faculty Center.
