The Viscan Student Body has been criticized time and time again to be rather apathetic. It’s been characterized as, although vocal, but timid. Its qualms manifested as a rabid choir of disparate voices, numerous but unorganized, often only addressed when a higher university official deems it important enough to recognize. This certainly seems true especially now with the re-election for the USSC and CSSC, as its initial being declared as “null and void” as it failed to even reach quorum; and the worst part behind it— is that a quorum is defined by the Student Electoral Board (SEB) to simply be 50% of the student body plus one.

Distance is a significant challenge for many students in VSU, given its land area. Lucky for those whose classes are in one building, but this is VSU we're talking about, classroom availability is scarce. Students travel kilometers from one class to another with hectic schedules, not to mention some walk with heels on their school shoes.

Visayas State University (VSU) is well known for its lush green scenery, offering shade and a calming atmosphere for the students and faculty. However, these past months, the university’s pride in lush greenery has slowly been cut down, in the most literal sense. Native trees ranging from the Eco Park up to the Department of Arts, Letters, and Languages (DALL), Department of Philosophy and Social Sciences (DPSS), and Department of Tourism and Hospitality Management (DTHM) have now been pruned, and Viscans are left questioning the rationale of this action.

We're truly fortunate to be experiencing this golden age of technology. Gone are the days when students slaved away over final term papers – now a swift ChatGPT session can save the day. But the magic doesn't stop at essays; they can now also make 'art'. But here's the thing: for as long as we remember, art has been a human-only activity. We learned to make art before we started writing. Our essence is woven into every piece of art we deem authentic. R.S. Mellette says: "Art is what makes us human." But if what makes us human is replicable by machines, where do humans come into this? As it stands now, humanity is slowly becoming obsolete, easily replicated by machine.
