BECAUSE SHUT UP: Orange Hush: Oregon State University student media adviser says university tried to quash her quest for public records. Note this, which is typical: “Initially, Giddens estimated it would cost more than $10,000 to provide the crime data because of the need to remove identifying information about students protected under FERPA, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. After Willson amended her request, Giddens said the crime data could be provided at a cost of $24.53.”
