  1. You know, running for student elections is a lot like being in the special Olympics. Even if you win, you're still retarded, and everyone goes back to not giving a flying fuck the next day.

    Literally, the only people who care are WPIRG and the Opt-In circlejerk. Stop posting your bullshit everywhere like anyone gives a fuck, autist.

    2. So salty. Go back to sock wanking and let the adults discuss issues of importance.

    3. 1a: participating in highschool drama is not really having school spirit.

      1b: I have been with my girl for 4 years and I'm 25 years old. You're spouting memes while simultaneously insinuating I'm a child. Get your head on straight. And maybe next time actually reply with something of substance, like why this stupid drama is an "issue of importance"...

    4. You're 25 and have nothing better to do with your time than being needlessly salty on OMGUW?

      You probably need to fix some things in your life, friend.

    5. I'm 25 but I'm still a student, it's Sunday and I'm procrastinating from studying for my exams. Please try harder.

    6. You're 25 and you use a slur that denigrates people with autism...mature student is not the proper descriptor here.

      How many people voted in the Opt-In referendum, and how many people voted these candidates in?

      Certainly not 30,000. So I'd say the majority of students don't give a fuck.

    3. "You provide nothing of value to the world"

      And how would you know? Again, you make it sound like this WPIRG drama is THE most important thing in the world, lol. Move on with your life, study for your exams.

  3. The majority of students don't necessarily care, because they just want to get their degree, graduate, and find a job.

    BUT

    70% of those eligible didn't vote in the last municipal elections either, and that doesn't mean our local government is meaningless. It's the same with Feds, just on a much smaller scale.

    Feds has powers, given to it by the government. It has the right to levy fees, and collect those fees from anybody who wants to study on this campus as an undergrad. It has the right to be the sole voice recognized by the University and the government as the "official" representative voice of students. Clubs and services only run on this campus because Feds uses our fees to provide them with funding and insurance. Anybody who studies on campus for more than 2 terms pays over $100 to Feds.

    Council sets the priorities and direction for a lot of that stuff. When Council gets it wrong, the result can be a colossal waste of student money, and even damage to the relationship between the people running the university and the representatives of the student body. A good Council can pass policies that are used to advocate for improvements to the quality of our education, greater fairness in how students are treated on campus, more student space, and more besides, while also reducing the effective cost of the services Feds provides.

    So you don't have to vote or care, but it definitely does matter.

    1. I care so much about these fees that I will come to Feds and ask to have them refunded. But will you honor my request? Probably not.

    2. The Feds fee is non-refundable. That's essentially the power they get as our student union.
