Don’t Grade on a Curve
Just read the August 30, 2011 issue of The Sun Star and I am amazed that the ASUAF summer session received a “B” rating for their services during the summer.
During the months of June-August summer session only met up on three occasions? That’s absolutely pitiful and speaks to priorities of the summer senate members. It was voluntary to be a part of the summer senate and the people who got the spots said they would be able to fill the duties that was needed of them. I tried to show up to the meetings to see what activities they were planning and most weeks, nobody showed. I, a student not affiliated with the senate showed up to more meetings then the actual senators. Sure, they got some stuff done (The training video in my opinion they over paid for) but these are things they could have done in a couple weeks and not a couple months.
Then to top it off they get a “B” because they were better then the 2010 session, which was “a joke.” OK, lets say the 2010 session got a “F”, if they slightly improved, that’s a “D”. That’s barley an improvement! We should be asking more from senators then this. I hope that you new upcoming senators have more respect for the system and for the students then these “senators.”
