It’s troubling to hear that the Student Union Society was contemplating selling off the name of the Student Union Building to the highest bidder. UFV has already given up any ability to ensure students get tasty food at reasonable prices through its totally unreasonable contract with SODEXO, the Belgian multinational.
Why should students have to endure yet more humiliation by having their space named “the Envision Credit Union Student Centre” or something equally absurd?
Everyone knows that the very best name for the Student Union Building is the Albus Dumbledore Memorial Building.
UFV needs a little bit of magic. The SUS has an opportunity to provide it. So, ask yourself: why not Dumbledore?
