Donald Trump has been President of the United States for two weeks, and, according to a recent poll conducted by Quinnipiac University, his approval rating is already sitting at a 36 percent. If 36 percent were a grade at Harvard and grade inflation was accounted for, that would still be woefully low. Thankfully (especially for all the tuition-paying parents out there), our fair college boasts a comprehensive list of things that have a higher approval rating than Donald Trump. Here’s a non-comprehensive rundown of things that make the list.
HUDS Sweet Potato Fries: No matter how terrible of a state our lives is in at any given point, if there are sweet potato fries on the HUDS menu, our day instantly gets better.
Economics 1011b: Just look at that sexy Q score of a 3 out of 5. Admire it. Recognize that the 3.0 probably also reflects the number of students who get an A in the course. Take it for your EMR requirement anyway.
The semi-secret Sorrento Square social organization that used to occasionally publish a so-called humor magazine: This is saying a lot, considering that the semi-secret Sorrento Square social organization that used to occasionally publish a so-called humor magazine is, well, just that. They should have comped Flyby instead.
The New Omni App: The original Omni was a bit of a flop, but hey, this updated one comes with a food truck schedule and a better shuttle tracker. It's perfect for Quadlings and those crazy people who have lined up five consecutive hours of class on Wednesdays.
Tatte: Forget the fact that it's basically impossible to get a seat here, ever. Tatte and its Insta-worthy aesthetic makes this place worthy of all of the praise.
Unrecognized Single-Gender Social Organizations: Forget the sanctions. Even Dean Khurana seems to be giving them a second thought. In fact, a whopping 60% of students voted in favor or repealing the sanctions in the most recent UC election.
Next time you’re suffering through a class with a terrible Q score or bemoaning the fact that you’re a prospective Class of 2021er who wants to be in the Fly(by) Club but also wants to get that Rhodes scholarship, just remind yourself that your chances are probably still higher than Trump’s approval rating.
