After acting “on behalf” of the entire student body and dramatically presenting their petition of demands that they wrote up, it has been revealed that the Students for Transparency, Equity, and Accountability through Mobilization has no idea what to do after filing their grievances to the faculty and also pasting it everywhere across campus so it’s impossible to get away from.
“It’s just really unfair,” explained Kira Walton (’19) “that the administration actually expects us to have any sort of solution in mind or any steps to take besides filing our grievances. It’s like they expect us to take some sort of action rather than just complain at them and then tell ourselves we’re helping. It’s such an unrealistic expectation for them to think we’d actually help them fix the problems!” We tried to ask them for any further details, but they had already retreated into their Wellness Den to stuff their face with what our field reporter described as “an obscene amount of ‘Self-Care’ chocolate.”
Due to the sudden disappearance of Walton, we reached out to other members of STEAM to see what their opinions on the matter were. Veronica Stilts (’22) expressed that they felt “the administration wasn’t taking STEAM seriously,” and that they were being “exploited, colonized, and… some other word from my ‘Oppression of Latinx LGTBBQ+ Womxn of Cxlxr’ class that generally means doing something I don’t necessarily approve of.” We wonder what further inaction will bring to the cause of STEAM. Considering half of the issues are hot-button topics that will cease to be popular in a couple of months, probably nothing.
