Student bar


I would like to add my opinion to the issue of why more graduate and student members did not vote in the merger ballot and their general lack of participation in issues of the ICE (NCE 1 September).

Although I did vote, I feel many others would not have done so because, as most of us are in our late teens and early twenties, we feel that our lack of experience and knowledge of the subject could just as easily prove detrimental to the Institution if thousands of uneducated guesses were to turn the tide one way, and that the fate of the Institution in important matters like this should be left to those who know better.

It is not necessarily that we don't care about the outcome, or that we're too drunk to open the packaging on the magazine.
