Dear Goucher Students:
While scanning the recent headlines in this newspaper, we couldn’t help noticing that, regarding important campus issues, the most frequent subject is “administration.” As in: “Campus Vandalism leads to growing administration concerns,” or: “Facing tuition deficits, administration initiates cutbacks.”
We wondered: why aren’t there more events on the same subjects – campus vandalism and the school’s budget crisis, for instance – that would require The Q to have “student” as subject? In other words, is the administration really the only party “concerned”? And, do students know the tremendous power that they have to change things on campus, not only among students, but also with faculty and administration? And, lastly, do students know enough about the ways that that power can be used?
