Salient. The Newspaper of Victoria University College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 19, No. 3. March 24, 1955


Does your club need a room? Most of us would say yes. For years clubs at VUC have been forced to put up with makeshift homes; as a result, college activities have stagnated. Too often records, finance files, libraries and sports equipment have moulded away under a secretary's bed or in some dusty cupboard. Committees have almost ceased to function for lack of suitable places to meet.

All clubs have a social aspect—they provide opportunity for students to get together, discuss and plan around their particular interests. Very few societies have a spot of college ground to call their own, too often their meeting places are over the bar at Barrets or the St. George—which naturally excludes their female members.

The ski club has a tiny hole in the lower gym. Salient labours in a draughty den in the upper gym and the SCM and photographic societies for a short time made use of army huts on the grounds. Odd lockers and cupboards have been found—the tramping club stores its gear next to the mens conveniences—but no answer to our problem.
