Welcome to the new ASSU blog of the Stanford Daily.
As Daily staffers, we get to engage with our student government much more than the average student. We cover their meetings, interview senators and members of the Executive and talk an unhealthy amount about what they’re up to.
Over time, we realized that our student government was much more interesting than most students know. All the bills, initiatives and actions of our elected officials – from the serious to the hilarious to the profoundly absurd – are done representing you. Love it or hate it, this group of students is the face of Stanford to the outside world and the administration.
We created this blog in the hopes of giving you more in-depth analysis and coverage about the ASSU. As in the production of all Stanford Daily content, we will strive for accuracy and to be fair to the truth. Our content will be produced to inform, engage and entertain you, the average Stanford student who doesn’t have the same access or time we have.
What we look forward to the most about this blog is hearing your thoughts. Write us a comment – we’ll read it. Ask us a question – we’ll answer it. Write us a blog post – we’ll publish it. It’s your student government, and too often you are left out of the conversation. We want this blog to be a step toward fixing that.
So, just in time for elections, we bring you our new blog. Stick around, prop your feet up and enjoy yourself. We look foward to hearing from you soon.
