Wash. U. loves weeks. We love programmed weeks with all of the fury of our Facebook pages, with the unmitigated intensity of the painted Underpass and with the fearsome flyers that paper bathroom stalls around campus.
Despite an unprecedented level of political programming from groups around campus, informal discussion remains the most common form of political engagement by students. Such students often want to participate in the election, but are pressed for time.
To stimulate political discourse among Washington University students as the general election draws closer, Student Union plans to distribute additional funds for election-related programming.
