Dylan Lustig, a sophomore international and economics major, and Taylor Carr, a junior public relations major, are both vying for the position of Student Association President. While both candidates will instantly inform you that they are friendly and cordial with each other, they disagree on policy and the direction of SA. For instance, many students do not know what SA is and its role on campus, and both candidates have sharply different views on how to fix this.

Carr believes a heavier emphasis on communication will lead to more awareness of SA. “We’ve had a really lackluster public relations effort since January,” Carr said. Lustig, meanwhile, agrees with Carr on the issue of communications and marketing of SA, but strongly believes SA should change its name from Student Association to Student Government Association. On the other hand, Carr disagrees with this name change. “It’s not about changing the name, it’s about how we reach out to students,” he said.

Whether SA changes its name or attempts to reach out to more students, it will have a difficult time acquiring the attention of an unaware and, at times, oblivious student body that does not know much about the inner workings of its university or student leadership.

If you’re an SU student then you should go see The Vagina Monologues tonight in Marshall Auditorium on ESF’s campus. These are some of the reasons why watching this performance is a better way to spend your Thursday night than whatever else you were planning:

  1. Vagina is an awesome word.
  2. It’s free.
  3. Sexual violence isn’t cool, but sexual empowerment is very cool.
  4. It’ll be more fun than watching your roommate snore on your couch.
  5. Eve Ensler rocks. Support the “V-Day” movement.
