The Spike or Victoria College Review June 1914
The Graduates' Association
The Graduates' Association.
This Association was founded by some of the first graduates of our College in 1906. In doing this they had the example of other colleges before them, and so, as the constitution puts the matter, the Association was founded "to enable graduates to express a collective opinion on matters affecting them educationally or academically." The chief matter on which a collective opinion has been expressed is University Reform. The Association also takes a great part in elections to the University Senate and to the College Council.
The ninth annual meeting was held on March 30th. Resolutions were carried deploring the refusal of the Government to appoint a Royal Commission on University Reform, and recommending the incoming committee to promote that reform in every way possible. The Annual Report stated that in consequence of purging the rolls of names of those who have ceased to be effective members, there was a nominal decrease in membership. On the other hand, however, there has been a notable increase in active members, and the subscriptions have increased. The membership is over too, and the funds show a credit balance of £5 10s.
