Don't take part in student government

Don't take part in student government

If anyone starts to talk about student politics, change the subject. If pressed, you are "not interested in other people's power hang-ups". Next year, as a second year student, your role will be more interesting. You will refer to student representatives as "pretentious shits" and make inane interjections at meetings. In the meantime, however, you can play a useful part in making participatory democracy look like the farce we all know it to be. Just be yourself. Above all, do not vote in Exec elections.
