If you ask Maggie Stack what the most important thing an Associated Students president can do, she says, “Go to committee meetings.”
It’s not an impressive-sounding answer about empowering students and fighting for their interests, but it does happen to be the right answer. An A.S. president who looks out for students is one who shows up at meetings where this campus gets carved up.
If you care how much it costs to park on campus, if there’s a bikepath between the engineering buildings and the library, or how the university treats its students, then you need an A.S. president who goes to those meetings and who knows how to talk to administrators. Maggie Stack would be that A.S. president. Of the four candidates, she is at once the most personable and the most pragmatic.
