As an overwhelmed college student, it is all too easy to play the victim. Students lament their crazed exam schedules when all their exams fall during one week, or claim that they were completely ambushed by the rigorous grading system of a certain course.
The 2010 LSA Student Government Ballot Questions address concerns such as these. The results of these questions will directly impact representatives’ voting decisions.
The amount of emphasis the student body places on these questions is usually lackluster and insufficient. If a student voices his or her concern and votes that the LSA course guide should post exam schedules for each class and this measure is passed, then the student will now have the ability and therefore the responsibility to form his or her own exam schedule.
People with no power are victimized and can complain. These ballot questions, however, offer the student body a chance to break his cycle of self-pity. Let your voice be heard tomorrow so that efficient change can occur.
