Choke the University Committees

Choke the University Committees

5.Clog up the committees with work so that nothing gets done. Pray for increasing pressure and an explosion. The objection to this is that the administration waits for a more pliable student executive next year. (UC)
6.Improve the class rep system and make class reps aware of mind 'colonization'. However this is still tokenism at a decentralised level. It may help increase student awareness. (AU)
7.Set up alternative full time courses which are more popular than the official ones. The department is then forced to create a course to cater for the demand to save face. (AU) The objection to this proposal is that at many universities the pressure of official work is so great that only the aware few would attend. Also, in that teaching methods are the same, and the content is more attractive only because of the use of slides etc., this method will still fail to raise student awareness. It will make the university more 'fun', but not more educative.
