Pros And Cons Of Being A Class Rep. by KPhantom(m): 8:28am On Apr 23, 2016
Pls, what are the advantages and disadvantages of being a class rep in a university/polytechnic/COE ?

PROS
1) You develope leadership and management skills: Beign a clas rep involves alot of responsibilities, You're charged with the onus of ensuring assignments are submitted, providing CA list, fixing project works and all. These in turn helps to develope your leadership qualities.. In a department, u can have students that can call you all sort of names if they get to knw any of their important assignments go missing, you learn to be calm, and work under pressure.

2) You become an acountant by force: Yes, very true, you will be in charge of students money running into hundreds of thousands, especially when there's an excursion coming up and about 100 students are to pay N4000 each to you.. You become cautious when handling money because you dont want your HOD and students to deal with you if a kobo gets missing.

3) You earn trust and respect: a very sensitive position, and people cant just help but to trust you with thier 6 credit unit assignments and projects. You also earn respect frm fellow students and lower students.

4) You learn to become a great multitasker: Is it to arrange for an impromptu meeting or to provide reliable information to your department, its you.. You also strive to be at the top of your class in academics, you're representing your class, you have to knw your onions when it comes to academics.

CONS
1) Its stressful: The stress can gradually take a toll on you.. especially when your department is large, and your assistant class rep is not functioning. the larger your department, the more the stress.. And if you cant handle it properly, your grades will feel the heat.

2) You miss important classes: You are always running around, while classes are going on, believe you me, if you miss a test, no one will say "come and re-write the test because you're the class rep"

3) You will be at the receiving end of insults and hate: get ready to receive many insults frm fellow students. This one is inevitable. Or is it when your fellow course mate is contesting for a position in the SUG and you dont support his campaign. If he looses, he will come for your head..
