MSA Flyer, News Story

Does it get any more generic than "Student Life!" ?

I think you missed the best part of the article, which is that free food = your meeting is serious and not a "waste of time." Heaven forbid you prove that you're not wasting someone's time through, oh, say, CONTENT.

As for the Disney character, if I were being generous (and I'm feeling a little chipper today) I'd say that it's brilliant advertizing, associating a non-anglicized name with a catchy phrase with similar vowel sounds to help voters remember who she is. plus a picture. Not bad, really.

The whole thing, though, is pretty indicative that undergraduate student gov't at Michigan is a big floppy joke. I'm going to go gloat over my small lib arts education now. suckers.

yeah, thats true heidi, i'll grant you the name thing: good point.

I wish other candidates would have left behind flyers though, because often flyers are just rhymes for sake of rhyming or pop-culture thievery. For example, I feel like if there were a Doug running that he'd probably be inclined to use the Doug animated character on his poster.

We'll see what else gets left behind.

Ha ha, Heidi basically said what I was going to say. Also any meeting I went to that had free food was BECAUSE it had free food. How can such motivations NOT lead to meetings that waste time?

Remember that engineering rep, Zach somebody? Every year he had flyers with Zach from Saved by the Bell on it. As if that was enough for some people to vote for him (it probably WAS).

The best part is that I found a MAP flyer that basically said, "Hey guys! Want to run for MSA? Join MAP!"

I guess this is who they found.

Jeesh people, if you can't recognize the HungryHungry Coeds party as pure satire pointing out the ridiculous nature of MSA, you don't deserve to go to this university.

Are you really stupid enough to believe MAP has anything to do with HHCP? Good work. You wouldn't stand a chance on any of the governments here.
