Well, Barnard’s SGA met again, this time to present the results of the Desserts After Dark Survey. Barnard Bureau Chief Dassi Karp was there to see if anything interesting would happen (spoiler alert, nope). Read on for some *fun* statistics and unsolicited opinions about how Rep Council should run their meetings.
Don’t get me wrong. I may be one of the biggest fans of the Desserts After Dark (DAD) survey out there. Collecting information, pie charts, and baked goods–what’s possibly not to like? The problem is the semesterly hour (or almost hour) spent reading the results. This is not the fault of the VP for Campus Affairs Hannah Stanhill, who runs the survey: she is required to give this presentation, and she did so dutifully and capably. This presentation, though, is just another in the long list of examples of how SGA wastes its external meeting time. The body has little grounds to be upset for not being taken seriously if most of their public-facing agenda involves drawn-out repetitive conversations and the reading of information that could have been shared in a short email or a nice set of infographics.
Rant aside, the survey did yield some interesting (if not at all surprising) results:
