Now listen to two students discussing the letter.
So what do you think of the proposal?
I don't like it.
Actually, I don't think students are the right people to be making these decisions. They're too close to the situation.
What do you mean?
Well, because students are directly involved in the groups, they can't be as objective, as fair, as administrators.
I mean, what will prevent students on the committee from just giving money to their friends' groups...
or or favoring the groups they're in themselves?
I think having the university administrators make the decisions is more fair.
Well, at least, it would be good experience for the students who serve on the committee.
Well, that's another thing.
I think they'd have a hard time finding students to serve on it.
I mean, there are already a number of leadership positions open in various campus groups, but most students just aren't interested in them.
That's true—the student council doesn't even have a vice president.
Right. Most students are just too busy.
There's no way you're gonna find enough students who are willing to volunteer their time for this committee.
It's too big of a time commitment.
