Trent University Students Are So Backwards...

So each year we have a referendum for groups who want to receive a levy (AKA money) from students.

These were the questions, ones in bold did not pass:

• Do you support changing the current Trent University Emergency First Response Team (TUEFRT) levy fees to a single non-refundable fee and increasing that by $1.75 for a total fee of $5.25?
• Do you support the creation of a $2.00 refundable levy fee, indexed annually to the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for the new Journal of Undergraduate Studies being launched at Trent?
• Do you support an increase of $2.00 to the Trent Women’s Centre’s $2.75 non-refundable levy fee for a total fee of $4.75, and that the fee be changed to be indexed annually to the Consumer Price Index (CPI)?
• Do you support the creation of a $1.50 non-refundable levy fee to support organic rooftop and field vegetable gardens at Trent?
• Do you support an increase of $0.60 to the Seasoned Spoon Cafe’s refundable levy fee of $2.15 for a total fee of $2.75?
• Do you support an increase of $1.00 to the Arthur Newspaper’s non-refundable levy from $9.50 to $10.50 and that the fee be changed to be indexed annually to the Consumer Price Index (CPI)?
• Do you support an increase of $0.50 to the Trent International Students’ Association’s non-refundable levy fee of $1.50 for a total fee of $2.00?
• Do you support the creation of a $2.00 non-refundable student levy for Sustainable Trent?
• Do you support a $3.00 increase to the Trent Radio non-refundable levy fee from $15.00 to $18.00, to be indexed annually to the Consumer Price Index (CPI)?
• Do you support the creation of a $0.50 refundable levy fee for the Trent Business Students Association?
• Do you support $0.50 increase in the World University Service of Canada’s non-refundable levy fee from $3.21 to $3.71?

The "NON-refundable" roof top garden ($1.50) and Sustainable Trent ($2)levies passed but the Trent Business students who have attempted for a levy since 2004, REFUNDABLE ($0.50) STILL did not pass. I really don't understand my fellow colleagues....How many weeks until I graduate and get out of this school????
