1. Local government and politics need visibility. City and county governments hold meetings on a regular basis and students rarely attend. Yet issues relevant to students are often discussed at these meetings, like increases in street parking fines, zoning for off-campus housing, and tax incentives for new businesses that employ part-time student labor. Another area of governance that affect students are the university or college’s Board of Trustee meetings. These cover topics like tuition increases, class cuts, and changes to student conduct policies. You might be the one to notify your peers of changes that affect them. College students need a voice.
