44,000 students charged accidental late fee

The Minnesota Daily reported on Thursday that 44,000 students have been charged with accidental late fees on their tuition bill. The University spokesman Dan Wolter, apologized on behalf of the University and is advising any University student to speak to One Stop if they are still experiencing difficulties. The main delay in fixing the error is due to the universities billing system. Wolter also added that the amount of fees differ from student to student.
This news story includes immediacy because the university was able to publish the story immediately the next day. Additionally they also acted upon and resolved the issue as soon as possible, and advertised it to university students to seem immediate assistance from One Stop. There is also proximity in this story. This is an issue that that occurred on the university campus, most of the students would be concerned about this topic specifically, if they are one of the 44,000 students that were charged. Finally, I believe there is also novelty in this story because these types of issues don't occur on campus very often especially when 44,000 students are affected by it. As a student at the University I don't come across issues like this.
