It’s Christmas-time at Georgetown, a time when all hearts on campus turn to one man who promised us salvation: Student Association president Pat Dowd. That makes for a perfect time to evaluate Pat’s term thus far using the Dowdometer, which judges Pat’s performance against my low expectations (the red bar).
The last time the Dowdometer was turned on, Pat was floundering after the collapse of his pumpkin giveaway. How do things look now?
- Setting up GUSA Summer Fellows
- Negotiating the return of beer pong tables
- Not being Vishal Aswani, the head of GW’s Student Association and a hilarious tale of student government paranoia.
This Dowdometer check was heavily influenced by Voice writer Kate Mays’s evaluation of Dowd. Like me, Kate expected to give Dowd another smack but realized, upon consideration, that the kid is all right.
Don’t let the Dowdometer’s scientific rigor tell you what to think, though! Vote on Pat’s first term in our first-ever Vox Populi poll.
