Does Your Faculty Need a Shock

Are you satisfied with your faculty? As a student do you leave your lectures satisfied that they have been worth attending? As a professor or lecturer do you finish a lecture or mark an exam, paper knowing that your work for your students is as good as you can do it?

At Massey College recently three members of the Students' Association Executive were invited to meet the staff members with criticisms of the staff and their methods. No holds were barred and no quarter given. Each staff member was commented on individually. After their dissection of the staff the three were thanked—cordially thanked—and it was agreed that such meetings were excellent and constructive.

Many students of this college and many members of our executive are dissatisfied with their professors and lecturers, with the use of the lecture platform, with the material presented and the remoteness of the staff. Are the Executive willing to take the initiative in the matter Mr. Horsley? Is this within the scope of good student Government?
