Student apathy may cause reduced representation
I am writing in response to the recent turn of events in the campus senate. I am disgusted with talk of reducing student senate seats, but I don't know who to blame. I am upset that the students face losing seats because quite a few of them have been absent from meetings. The reason I am upset is because I would be happy to serve and attend every meeting to ensure that all of my fellow students get fair representation, and I am sure there are other students out there who feel the same way.
I am further upset, however, because even if I was on the senate, I probably would not be heard. I think it is time for some changes. We need to find student senators who will attend all of the meetings they can. If we can find students who will be committed, maybe the faculty senators will take the student senators seriously. Maybe then the student body will get the fair representation we currently lack.
