Our Purple Friends to the South never seem to learn. This morning, NYULocal reported that the CAS (College of Arts and Sciences) Student Council changed its constitution to require that anyone running for Student Council President would be required to have three full semesters of government involvement under their ultra-hip faded leather belts in order to run. 

NYULocal called the move “baffling” and pointed out that sophomores, juniors and transfer students will never be able to run for Student Council President. The current CAS Student Council President Megan Cruz defended the constitutional change by stating: “this is about ensuring the preservation and continuing success of the Council for the foreseeable future.” Right, that way student councils will always be incestuous.
