I have had the privilege of serving as Programming Council chair for the past year. During this time, I have learned much about what works and what doesn’t work.
Our campus is currently struggling with student apathy 8212; most students rarely go to events and generally do not participate in on-campus programs.
The only real way to address student apathy is to find out what the students want. This can be achieved by developing surveys that better track students’ wants, meeting with organization presidents and providing an open communication system in order to effectively determine what students want.
My main goals are to bring bigger names to campus and ultimately discover and plan around students’ wants.
