Do We Have A Voice?

Students will have a chance to make their voices heard at the upcoming Town Hall meeting in Kenan Hall at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 31.
All students are encouraged to attend to have their questions answered and suggest any ideas or changes for the William Peace University community. The first 50 students to arrive even get a free t-shirt, and what college student doesn’t need another free shirt?
Beyond the free t-shirt, this event is important for the Peace community as it is being held at a time when many students don’t feel they have a voice here at WPU.
“I do not feel like I have a voice at Peace because even though it is a small school,” said sophomore Tatyana Ryals, “I don’t feel like what we say really matters.”
The Town Hall hopes to be a place for students to voice those everyday thoughts and questions around campus but many students worry about what the administration will do with the student feedback.
“I know I can communicate and express some ideas, but I feel like a lot of those ideas are never pushed by the school,” said junior Jacob Dohmann.
Some topics that students would like to discuss are:

  • More elevators around campus
  • Adding a new speaker to the Dance Studio
  • Allowing cell phones and computers in classrooms
  • Time frame for renovations

This and many other topics can be covered in the session if students attend and make contributions to the forum where your voice is welcomed and will be appreciated.
