Every week at Texas A&M’s Memorial Student Center, thousands of flyers are pushed into the faces of unconcerned students.  Whether advertising A&M’s newest Women’s Organization, or eating at Panda Express as part of a profit share, most of these flyers go ignored.  

Despite the universal acceptance of the flier distributors that they are completely wasting their time and their organizations’ precious bakesale revenue, a recent phenomenon has been reported to have occurred. On September 8th, freshman Psychology major, Parker Sandersen was seen walking through the MSC and keeping a flyer handed to him. The flyer was about attending the Tree Killer Society’s Tuesday night informational in Rudder 405, and to the astonishment of all who witnessed the phenomenon, Sandersen actually attended the informational.

“My Fish Camp counselors kept telling me to get involved, so once I was handed the flyer, I took it on myself to go to the informational. It turns out that everyone else there knew someone in the organization already, or had been recommended it by roommates and friends, so when I said that I had heard about them through receiving a flier, I got some weird looks,” said Sandersen.  When further questioned on what took place during the informational, Sandersen went on to say, “The presentation wasn’t bad, but I was disappointed that the ‘free food’ they advertised was just HEB cookies.”  

Todd Kellie, a junior Tree Killer Society member, reported his reaction to Sandersen’s attendance.  “I was shocked,” said Kellie.  “We are so used to students grabbing our flyers and immediately throwing them into a nearby trash bin or outright ignoring us…never did we expect a student to attend our informational based on our flyer.  The reason we make flyers in the first place is to stay in line with our organization’s mission and values, knowing that one of the most efficient and effective forms of wastefulness is by handing students our paper and letting them do the dirty work for us. The first few weeks of classes are our most productive times of the year because the whole school is really pitching in to our cause, whether they are an official member of TKS or not. ”   

Kellie also told The Mugdown about the society’s upcoming profit share at Panda Express.  After a short period of feigned interest, the flyer for the event was discarded.
