The latest OUSA referendum was one of the most interesting referendums in recent memory, which is to say it was slightly less interesting than green top milk.
Highlights included 88.5% of students agreeing that fucking freshers shouldn't be allowed to go to Hyde, and a tragic minority of 15.7% voting for OUSA to change its colour from green to orange.
OUSA let us have the anonymous comments after we threatened to throw a hissy-fit if we didn’t get our way. Here are some of the best:
Boring question about accepting some report
bruh if there are more questions like this, I'm boutta head out But yeah the report was fine, nauseatingly positive
Shut OUSA down. No legal requirements = no legal OUSA which suits me.
Buying Marsh Study Centre and Turning it back into Gardies Pub
Necromancy, whilst admirable, is not feasible. Spend the money to make Starters better.
Drinking is a primitive culture that should not be encouraged. Internationally, its very embarrassing. Any encouragement of this "culture" should be avoided.
Boring question about Ombudsman
THIS SHOULD BE SOMETHING NZUSA OR WHATEVER ITS CALLED SHOULD BE PAYING FOR. WHY ARE YOU PAYING 45K AND YOU ARENT EVEN BEING SUPPLIED WITH AN OMBUDSMAN????
Environmental question #356
CLIMATE CHANGE MUST BE DEALT WITH OR WE ARE ALL DOOOOOOOOOMED
install hydro in leith
Bringing back free flu jabs
Harlene Hayne earns six figures and gets a free staff one.
Bring it to Southland campus
Establishing an OUSA brewery
Duh! hit me up, it's legit the only way I make rent each week. - student on Albany st
Printing majors and minors on degree certificates
idk if i want employers to know i got a theatre studies degree lmaooo
Critic making more video content
The Critic are a toxic publication which is obsessed with walking the line between being "woke" and "brethas". They pull off neither and are widely criticised and discredited. Avoid too much association, not a good look for the OUSA.
BRING BACK ROGER YAN!
Are you providing them with more resources and staffing to do so? Voting 'No', but actually open to it - although it's likely to videos of them getting wasted in their office so don't know if I'd ever watch it
get rid of Joel MacManus
IT WOULD BE COOL BUT ONLY IF THE CRISTIC WITERS WOULD WANT TO DO IT AND THERE IS A PLAN OR A KIND OF ROSTER TO MAKE SURE THERE ISNT UNFAIRNESS AND OVEREXHAUSTING THE WRITERS
They should release online copies of the each issue (not just parts)
That's their business not mine where's the skip button
Radio One being played on campus
Yes. However... Let's be honest, Radio One does fuck all to engage students. I love it (and them) but it's been too hipster elite-ish for too long. Bring it back to the people! Unleash the DnB! And btw OUSA, if you EVER think of selling Radio One I will track you all down, eat a MASSIVE curry, and I. Will. Shit. On. Your. Doorstep.
Try get the Uni WiFi to stop blocking porn
You can masturbate on your own data connection, thank you
some weirdos are going to end up wanking in the library so miss me on that shit please
If I want to take a quick break from study to crank one out in the disabled stall that is my God given right
lemme see some tiddies
OUSA to hold a competition to see who can eat the most limes (the fruit, not the vehicle)
Hey I suggested this question! Um it was a joke, I doubted it would be accepted. Do whatever you want.
Good on the memer who submitted this
Stock up on them while they cheap fam - 6.99 per kilo now, sometimes up to 20
my friend submitted this so out of loyalty
This is the most pointless referendum question I have ever seen in all of the OUSA referendum's that I've done - please, please make this happen.
as long as the limes come with a shot of tequila
Should OUSA hold a competition to see who can rail the most lines?
Sounds unsafe in terms of gastric/duodenal acid irritation. I am a final year medical student and I think that sounds like it will harm peoples' health.
I'll turn up
yes i would win
More books in the library
I LIKE BIG BOOKS AND I CANNOT LIE You other readers can't deny When a good book walks in with A good plot base And a big spine in your face You get sprung! Wanna get out your notepads 'Cause you noticed that book Was dense. Deep in the book I'm reading, I'm hooked and I can't stop Speeding, through Baby I wanna get that literature, And Instagram that picture, My teachers try to train me But that book you've got Makes me so brainy! (Baby got books!)
I was unaware that the libraries had a net deficiency in books.
replace askotago with books
Finally a question actually worth engaging in.
OUSA changing their colour from green to orange
Nice try, James Heath
I suggest hot pink.
NO THANKS GREEN LOOKS GREAT PLUS GREEN IS BLUE AND YELLOW MIXED TOGETHER
We suffered enough under John Key's flag change shenanigans, please dont make us suffer through this again
I'm voting yes for the meme, please don't actually change it
Orange is an VERY DISGUSTING COLOUR AND I HATE IT. I would never go anywhere near OUSA cause it would make me want to puke. GREEN is THE BEST COLOUR. and if you change it i will fight you
“Should OUSA, in principle, support the restoration of meaningful policy-making powers to Student General Meetings, and direct the Executive to devise appropriate constitutional changes to give effect to this?”
piss off rowing club
pls let me abstain from questions for the love of god
