So, my college (Saint Louis University) has thought of this great new policy to consider. It was just presented to our Student Government Association, and I was wondering how wonderful you think it all is. note, I am being ridiculously sarcastic, as this school's administration rules with an iron fist:
Recently, SGA and the Student Conduct Office drafted a proposal to introduce a demerit system that would give the Office of Student Conduct a say in what happens in your classes.
It effectively brings the office of student conduct into the handling of the simplest classroom affairs.
CONDUCT ADDRESSED INCLUDES:
being late to class
incomplete or sub par work
rolling your eyes
laughing at or about anyone or anything that may be questionable
making a sexist comment
untempered unguarded noises while the instructor is speaking
lack of participation
unapproved laptop use
"doing other things"
