Senate approves the powwow budget
Student Senate allocated $800 towards the budget for the CSC Native American Club powwow, Saturday Nov. 18, 2017. The breakdown of the budget consisted of $250 for the Master of Ceremonies, $250 for the Arena Director, and $350 for the Mighty Arrows host drum.
Senate also allocated $340 toward the purchase of customized stoles for ten graduating senators.
“The stoles will say Student Government down one side, and the position [of the Senator] on the other,” Vice President Johnathan Sayloune said.
Student Senate also allocated $250 for the shipping cost of boxes for the Operation Shoe-Box Charity, only half of the requested amount. Senate explained that they would allocate half of the money asked for by Andrew Johnson, and requested that CAB ask clubs to donate the rest of the money.
Senate has a current budget of $24,581.95 in unallocated funds.
The Constitutional Court is looking for justices for the spring semester. Some duties of a Justice include conducting elections during the fall and spring semester, apply the rules, bylaws, and Constitutional Court.
“There’s been some confusion lately, and I just want to be very clear,” said Chief Justice Samantha Merrill. “Justices are neutral parties, and they do not assist in anyway in the defense or the prosecution of Senators. They are a neutral party which Senators are brought before, and we decided based on the information to presented to us. We do not assist in any way, shape, or form.”
Students interested must be a full-time student, with a minimum GPA of 2.75. Those interested in the position should contact Merrill.
With the feedback received from last weeks CAB meeting, the Spring Daze Committee has decided not to have a concert for entertainment.
“Our Saturday looks like we are going to hire a professional DJ,” Sayloune said. “We are going to try to make it one of the event style dances on campus.”
The Spring Daze theme is 90s nostalgia, and the committee is opening up a T-Shirt design contest to the students.
