The Associated Students of CSU is supposed to be the voice of
the students, and as such, it should be consulted on issues that
affect CSU students. The issue of banning alcohol at Sonny Lubick
Field at Hughes Stadium is an issue that affects the students, and
it was not brought to ASCSU.
What is the point of having a student government if the
administration is not going to consult them in issues of importance
to the students? Most of the students cannot possibly have their
voices heard and share their opinions. Instead, students vote for
the people who they feel can best represent them into ASCSU. To
have such a big decision as an alcohol ban put into place without
consulting the student voice is unfair.
The issue of the alcohol ban is definitely a student issue.
Students look forward to the games and are a significant portion of
the people who attend the games. Football games are an outlet for
fun and the way for fans to show their school spirit. Any changes
to this activity should be brought to the attention of people who
enjoy it so much – the students.
The students of CSU just want to feel that they are included in
decisions that impact their activities. A message that the
administration does not care what we think is sent to the students
when the ASCSU is left out of this decision. It also shows the
administration does not have enough faith in this student body to
make good choices.
