Potential problems include lack of student involvement in campus-wide issues, low student-voter turnout, tuition increases, problems with the student health service, volunteering, mentoring programs, parking problems, and alcohol abuse problems. It is possible for students to identify a problem and then work with Student Life, Student Senate, or some academic or support department in gathering data (surveys or interviews) to utilize in the speech.
