Lots of Queens around this year: Home­com­ing Queen, Mardi Gras Queen, Frosh Queen: in fact, two ri­val Frosh Queens (al­most). The Frosh Un­der­grad­u­ate So­ci­ety protested when one of the fra­ter­ni­ties an­nounced that they were anoint­ing the Frosh Queen. That’s just your Fra­ter­nity’s Queen, said the of­fi­cial Frosh; we’re go­ing to choose our own. In the end, how­ever, the of­fi­cial Frosh backed down, so no one ended up in the Tower, thank­fully.

Not for the first or last time, both Coun­cil and the com­plained about a lack of stu­dent in­ter­est in the run­ning of the So­ci­ety, not­ing the num­ber of Coun­cil seats that were filled by ac­cla­ma­tion. The also did a sur­vey that re­vealed that some stu­dents didn’t know that be­ing the AMS Pres­i­dent meant be­ing pres­i­dent of the stu­dent body.

Per­haps the fault lay with the pro­lif­er­a­tion of mys­te­ri­ous acronyms, which had be­come so wide­spread that the ran an “al­pha­bet soup” con­test, ask­ing stu­dents to iden­tify as many acronyms as they could, from MAD, PhUS, and CUS to SCM, NFCUS, and the like.
