Students Hear AAS Head, Vote Friday On Re-Joining About 40 Lethbridge Com- munity College students turned out Wednesday afternoon to tear an address by Jim Draginda, president of the Al- >erta Association of Students. Mr. Draginda visited the col- ege to attempt to persuade LCC students to vote in a ref- erendum Friday that will de- cide whether or not 'the college will re-join the member association. College students withdrew last spring in protest over what they said were irrelevant ac- tivities the AAS was involved in, and also due to its over- emphasis on university activi- ties. The AAS includes all univer- sities and technical schools, some nursing schools and most colleges in Alberta. Mr. Draginda reviewed the association's activities from its formation hi 1965 to the present, and outlined some ol its current programs. He said the answer to many of the complaints levelled by colleges had been to encourage the college student presidents to meet with provincial offi cials to discuss problems backed by the AAS. In the past, the AAS president has ried to represent all institu- tions by himself. Among the various AAS pro- grams LCC students could take iart in would be a summer job s x c h a n g e arrangement fi- nanced by the federal govern- ment under which college stu- dents' here could work in cer- ,ain jobs in other provinces, to assist them in understanding Canada better. Mr. Draginda said this could be done in a general way by all students, and by special ar- rangement jasis. for nursing education The college students' society also discussing joining an American college students' union, since increasing num- >ers of LCC students are taking leir third and fourth years in he U.S. The general feeling of most udents seems to favor joining le AAS again, and to also con- ider joining the American ociation. on an others exchange including students, who could work their required summer hospital hours in a Maritime hospital instead of an Alberta hospital. Transferabllity Is a current complaint of college students who want to be able to transfer credits to Alberta universities as they now can with many American universities. Mr. Draginda said the AAS is currently working on tha problem, but needs support from all colleges to have an) success. association woul cost the college students' soci ety about ?350, at 50 cents per student.
