Rants and Raves: November 12, 2009


Unfair Registration
 Registering for classes last week based on classifications continues to be a problem on the VSU campus. The day students are allowed to register for classes is determined by how many hours the student has acquired in previous semesters. Student registration should be determined either by GPA or attendance. I have no sympathy for students who may have failed classes due to being lazy, that results in insignificant hours but that is not always the case. Factors such as class availability, or students who have to work contribute to shortage of hours, and for those reasons they should not be punished. With the current system at hand, students with a 2.0 GPA who may have taken an extra perspective or elective giving them a total of 30 credit hours, would have a greater opportunity to gain access to upper level classes than that of a student with a 4.0 and 29 credit hours. This just doesn’t seem right.

Campus Cookouts
 Throughout the semester VSU organizations have held various cookouts in order to connect with and contribute to the students. After spending the majority of your day in class either taking exams or listening to professors, hanging out with friends and eating free food is just what students need to relax. Most college students are living on a budget so a free meal to hold them until dinner seems great. These cookouts also promote unity and information while having fun. Most students stop by to at least grab something to drink all the while engaging in conversation with others while learning about organizations and meeting members. Some students may be nervous to approach members of organizations outside of school, so this creates a friendly and relaxed environment to do so. After a long day, listening to music while playing games and pigging out with friends is a great way to leave campus.
