Use Bush Fund To Rescue CEGn these days in which the Vannevar Bush '16 Fund's uses are a matter of heated-debate, I wish to propose a use which could be given to a part of it. The Tech has recently exposed the danger of extinction which the Course Evaluation Guide faces. I believe the guide is very useful in choosing courses and essential as an evaluation of individual professors' and teaching assistants' performances. I therefore propose using part of the Undergraduate Association President's fund to pay for at least minimal salaries for the students who work in the preparation of the guide. I know that there is some money currently allocated to that purpose, but it is evidently not enough. A monetary compensation might allow interested students who need the money and are therefore working elsewhere, to work in the preparation of the guide instead. This useful resource to the MIT community might then be saved and the UAP would be able to show the student body that he cares.
