You know, I'm all for fun things going on around school. I'm all for great concerts, and stuff. But the Program Board this past year has gotten me a little disappointed. Mostly because they've been an entirely reactive group. I haven't seen them take the initiative in doing much of anything.
It's for that reason that I'm supporting Calder Stembel for Program Board Executive Chair. Maybe this isn't the proper forum, or maybe it's bad that I'm his roommate, but I've known the guy for two years now, and I have a problem believing anyone else could possibly do better than he would.
Remember Fall Fest? Yeah. Bad news bears.
But right now we all have the successes of the Jason Mraz concert on our minds, so we're apt to think the current chair is doing a good job...I'd like to say that no she is not. She's planned great concerts, but on outreach to other student organizations, on interacting with faculty to create a better program environment here on campus, and on talking to students to find out what they want, she has failed.
If you want to learn more about Calder, check out his website.
