The student advisory committee struggled for hours over whether to open a new students' lounge in the student center.
Everyone said that they wanted one, but no one seemed to know how to raise the money.
So they brainstormed about fundraising events. There were a lot of good ideas. One person suggested selling old stuffed animals.
But that was not quite the image that the student government wanted to strive for-earning money from old teddy bears!
So they passed on that idea! The best idea was from a person who was the main representative to the students's council.
She suggested designing special student cards to replace the normal student ID.
Then each student would have to pay a special “development fee” that would go directly towards paying for projects chosen by the students' government,
such as building a new students' lounge! A lot of people liked this idea immediately.
Others didn't want to force students to pay anything! So they discussed how to give student discounts to certain people for the new cards,
which students' associations wouldn't have to pay, how to hire a studio assistant to help design the card, and other stuff like that!
The meeting went on twice as long as usual! In the end, they decided to go with the idea and, instead of hiring someone, hold a contest for the best design.
Then they could hold a students' exhibition in the old study lounge and have everyone vote for their favorite! The meeting was finally over!
