An in-depth analysis of Urban Dictionary and its applications to student council

Mia Zanzucchi

If there are two things you need to know about me, it’s that Urban Dictionary is my bible (the app is right next to my beloved actual dictionary app – what am I doing with my life?) and I was the junior class veep (vice-president) last year. In a generous move, I am sharing an in-depth analysis of several important Urban Dictionary definitions and connecting them back to our student council.

Urban Dictionary Says:
Student Council –
a group of students who like to waste schools/students money on silly things. ( turtles, ipods, sand, buttons, and plastic forks..)
President – a person that lies
Vice-President – a backup president, someone who often takes care of things the president does not want to do; the one who gets blamed for everything the president does wrong.
Recorder – A wooden instrument invented in the Renaissance, which came to its height of popularity in the Baroque period.
Member at Large – member at large isn’t defined yet (Author’s note: brb eating some ice cream and listening to Adele)

Analysis:
Student Council –
Basically we did that, except by “waste,” we made a profit of $200 and by “silly things,” we bought you coffee, Yoohoo (not Yahoo. We’re not that wealthy, sorry) and Arnold Palmers. Sorry for party rocking, guys.
President –At the student level, council is an open book (except if snacks are involved, in which case you are not invited.) Duties include, but are not limited to: overseeing community service activities, graduation, senior field day, baccalaureate and class reunions for seniors; community service and prom for juniors; and community service for sophomores and freshmen.
Vice-President – Yes, it’s true: as junior veep, I did ALL THE WORK. I’m kidding. I don’t know what it’s like at the national level, seeing as I’m 17. But student council shares the good, the bad and the ugly (and the Colts Coffee Corner shifts.) The only fingers we point are foam fingers at pep rallies and sporting events (if we had any…) The veep helps the pres out and would be the one to replace him/her if they were to resign.
Recorder – Nope. Finally, the mighty Urban Dictionary was wrong, which is really upsetting to me. But anyways, the recorder keeps the minutes and takes notes during meetings and takes care of all written things student council may need.
Member at Large – basically the members at large are too awesome for UD. Members at large are basically just these super cool people who do whatever needs to be done. And they do it with a smile.
