Vice President of Academic Affairs MARKSAVIT " I say things that ' ll excite people. 1 would even try to get people to hate me if that will involve them in student government. " Such were the words of the one student body officer who was considered by many to be the " resident campus radical. " Mark was really very disgusted with the lack of opposition on campus; to him that indicated that student government was either very good or very bad. Above all, he resented the administration and faculty talking about students as if they were " some subhuman culture. " Determin- ing maturity and competence on the basis of age was repugnant to him. " If you don ' t understimate me, 1 won ' t underestimate you, " a quote from a Bob Dylan song, best summed up his feelings towards student, faculty and administration attitudes in general. Vice President of Programs SANDRA SORENSON explained, " I ' d tried everything else, so I decided ' why not student government? ' " Before she was elected vice-president, she had been active in stu- dent government in the business school and AWS. " When I ran last spring, I never thought I ' d win, especially because I was a girl, " said Sandra, who wants to go into television entertainment. During her term of office, the Executive Council passed a resolution containing the key plank in her platform. This resolution allowed off-campus enter- tainment to sponsor concerts on campus, with the university receiving ten percent of the profits. " In this school if you ' re polite, you can get what- ever you want. Your approach is the key, " she philos- ophized. 23

ASSC President FREDMINNES Fred had been involved in student government since his freshman year. His whole career had been dedi- cated, he said, to increasing the role of students in governing the university. Students at the university had been notably apathet- ic mainly because of their lov - opinion of the student body government. The ASSC had been " a sandbox for Greeks, " but once it could stop worrying about sex, liquor and lockout, it could concentrate on " im- proving the general quality of student life and academ- ics. " Fred did succeed in galvanizing part of the students when he reappeared after the summer with a Fu- Manchu mustache and, according to the " died-in- the-wool YAF and TYR fanatics, " new, sell-out liberal leanings. However, they misinterpreted his intention to " radicalize the student body and thereby create a climate of opinion and force them to take a stand. " This did not mean bombing Bovard or molotov- cocktailing VKC, but merely meant that students should be provoked over certain issues such as USC ' s lack of academic prestige, and student participation in major university decisionmaking. But tangible results of suggested improvements are difficult to measure. The university now has stu- dents sitting on committees, it has reevaluated stu- dent rights, it has considered the relative importance of student, faculty and alumni influence, but Fred will never really know whether he played a part in bring- ing about these changes, will he? 22
