Wisdom from a candidate for the Presidency of the Harvard Undergraduate Council, from the Harvard Crimson:
The Waite-Petri campaign is adopting an age-old tradition of using their platform to advocate for the abolition of the Council. There is one caveat, however. “We’re going to invite a member of the House of Hapsburg to rule the student body indefinitely instead,” Waite says.
“I think that a member of the Royal Family would be in a much stronger position to negotiate with the administration and faculty,” he explains. “It’s much easier for Harvard to blow off a group of self-important undergrads than it is the House of Hapsburg.”
Read the piece for other good ideas, such as the replacement of student activity fees with proceeds from ox-powered farming in “Allson or Canada.”
