Students Rallying Against VSA Changes

Students have created the Facebook group Solidarity Against VSA Changes to voice opposition against the proposed changes to the VSA Council announced earlier this week. The page already has 57 attendees who will go to the council meeting on Sunday and "show them that we're still here, and we disagree."

We spoke to council member and Main house president Boyd Gardner '12 about the proposed changes and student response. "The feedback I've gotten from my constituents and in conversation with other students has been universally negative, but I'm looking forward to a lively and (hopefully) productive discussion on Sunday," he tells Mads. "I think we've concluded that the current Council is far from ideal, but we should take a serious look at alternative, less-radical solutions that could improve the VSA without undermining our unique system of residential representation."
