This University Sucks

Just saying…

A not-so-secret secret plaque is on the move. “This University Sucks” (as pictured) has been a feature on Victoria’s Kelburn campus for years, some say from the 1980s, others think possibly since the 1970s.

No one around campus knows the history of the plaque, or if they do, they aren’t telling Salient.

If you don’t know where it is, then sorry, but it is tradition to not print where it is. Well, possibly not, but Salient has decided to make it one.

There was a lot of effort into placing the plaque, but due to the Campus Hub Redevelopment it has to move.

The university has asked VUWSA to find it a new home.

VUWSA President Max Hardy says the exec will be searching for an appropriate home for the sign.

“We are glad the university didn’t take the opportunity to take the sign away.

“It is a tradition on campus that we are happy to continue.”

VUWSA has agreed to continue the tradition and not publicise the plaque’s new home. Decisions made about the sign will be kept put of official minutes, just in case.
