I've been doing a lot of painting around the ASGA office lately. A fresh, new coat of paint really makes things look great. All of the old blemishes are covered and everything looks unified when it's colored the same.
All of the touchup made me think of the tarnished images of many student governments around the country. Perhaps yours is one of them. Students think you're a joke and administrators don't take you seriously.
By putting a new coat of paint on your "image" you can start changing how students and administrators see you. ASGA has a ton of resources on how to use public relations techniques to improve your image and ability to reach out to your constituents.
