RyeSAC super soaks students

By Rob Granatstein

RyeSAC’s going to soak students to promote their new name.

Ryerson’s student government is spending some of their $7,000 promotional budget on super soaker water guns emblazoned with the RyeSAC logo.

“We’ve decided to promote our new name like crazy,” said RyeSAC’s v.p. finance Patrick Hynes.

The rest of the money will be spent on signs, pens, and other novelties with the RyeSAC ram on it.

The new name, Ryerson Students’ Administrative Council (RyeSAC), replaced the old RSU name of the past five years.

RyeSAC would have an almost balanced budget without the huge promotional campaign.

Also for the new school year, RyeSAC will launch the university’s first exam bank. It will be tested on business students this fall. Students will be able to go to Copyrite and, for 15 cents a page, buy a copy of past exams for the courses they are taking.

“We’re not making money on it,” said Greg Thomas, RyeSAC’s v.p. education. He hopes Academic Council will force professors to surrender past exams to the exam bank.

If this project is successful, other programs will be added to the bank.
