A GLUG is the organic link between FSMK and a college. Without the GLUG, FSMK will not be able to gauge or engage with the student community.
An active GLUG brings about self-sustainability. No activity can be driven from outside the institution. Interest and motivation has to be generated from within the GLUG so that the hosting institution benefits. FSMK can only provide resources from outside. However, if self-sustainability cannot be generated then resources will have to be used for priority GLUGs
A GLUG is where ideas are generated. While FSMK promotes certain thought processes, it is within the GLUG where they are debated, critiqued, burnt until it takes on a whole new form and built into something that is useful to society.
A GLUG is not neutral. A GLUG takes sides. It is argumentative not simply for the sake of argument but because it is in a state of meaningful learning. It is a mini-university.
A GLUG creates leaders who then create more leaders. A GLUG is not simply a hacking club. It is more. It is designed to unleash the potential within a member so that we may fruitfully contribute to a better society in whatever way we can.
