Transcript Apathy Now! Student Finds Place In Life Dorothy Jackson is a student who loves her apathy. "Time on my hands is time in front of the TV," she says. It's not surprising that her favorite reading material is the TV Guide. In the late spring, 1986 she tried to organize a movement — the Apathy Party — to run in the RHA elections. It never got off the ground. "All of my friends were too apathetic to get involved," she explains. When the fall rolled around, fed up with all of the early semester activity on campus, she decided to organize a group — the Apathy Club — for students like herself who don't want to get involved. She want to Campus Activities to get an application for new organizations. "I even attended the mandatory orientation." Well, she never completed the application. One of the questions on the application asked how your organization is in keeping with the University's philosophy of promoting a healthy academic and social atmosphere. She couldn't explain how the desire to do nothing but watch TV could help very many students learn outside of the classroom. She is quick, however, to point out that she is a RTV major. But anyway, what kind of activities could the Apathy Club sponsor? Who would come to the meetings? Would you need to have a fund-raiser? What if you had money — then what? She talked about it for months but arrived at no solution. So the Apathy Club, like a lot of things, never came into existance. But for Dorothy Jackson that's okay. She watched plenty of TV while she thought about it. There is plenty of apathy in the system, but organized apathy just doesn't pay. — Mark Lacy 291
