I'm long enough out the SU to be more open with my feelings on certain students within the college, so I'll say this: I can think of ONE person who actually came into my office to complain about a problem with the college. That's not an exaggeration, there was only one person. And you know what? The issue they had got resolved very quickly when they brought it up with me.
On the other hand, I would over hear the same minority of people complaining about the departments, the SU or something else in the college, and they would do NOTHING about it. If you are unhappy about something within the college then by not bring it up directly and try get it resolved. And if nothing happens then go to the SU and tell them.
I know full well from studying there, working there and still having friends there that it is a minority of people who are unhappy with the college, they are happy to complain about it with mates instead of trying to resolve it.
0 likes right now, but I'm about to start pouring money into advertising. This won't stop 'til every man, woman and child knows not to pick GCD. Any place that favors shareholders over students should be burned to the ground.
....I can't tell if you're joking or not. I'll assume you actually believe that statement.
I'll tell you one thing that shows that the college gives a damn about it's students: in the SU we would regularly talk with the directors to get support for different things to help students lives, and they have always been very eager to hear us and help us out. Tomas in particular really wanted to hear everything and give help when he was asked. We got wifi brought in, increased events numbers and got permission to allow more late night events. We got issues within departments resolved (I had one big case that Tomas made a top priority and to this day I'll stand by him for what he did). The directors want students to be happy, because if they are not then the college fails.
I'll say it again, if you have a problem with the college then tell them! Nothing gets resolved just by posting here or starting a Facebook group. And if you feel you're not getting anywhere, bring the SU along, that's what they are there for (Yes every year there are some you know wouldn't help you but there are those who will and they are very easy to spot)
