Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 4, No. 5. June 6, 1941

What We Do

What We Do

N.Z.U.S.A. is a very formal and executive body; it does very little original work towards making the student population of this country more alive as a useful and intelligent section of the community. This year, for instance, some very valuable work was done in getting better conditions for students in the universities themselves. The conference reviewed enquaries being made in connection with obtaining examination results earlier, a co-ordinating centre for finding employment for graduates, and a sound investigation of curricula anomalies in New Zealand universities. All this is work that can only be done by a central body working with the authority of all the colleges, and is valuable to them all, but it is only a very elementary and trifling job compared with the work that could be done and is being done in England, for instance. Even the bigger enterprises undertaken by N.Z.U.S.A. over the last few years, such as debating tours by American and Australian students, as well as a New Zealand tour to Australia, and athletic tours, even these more enterprising undertakings are only a minor executive part of what N.Z.U.S.A. could do.
