Elections for senate to begin next week

Senator elections are April 18-20, and candidates can officially start campaigning.
“They open and close at noon, so keep a look out for that,” Chief Justice Samantha Merrill said. “It is important to get everyone to vote.”
Senate has a current budget of $8,402.75 in unallocated funds.
Senate allocated $210 for two Platinum Eagle awards. These awards will be given to one male student and one female student who display signs of leadership and are graduating in May. The requested budget covered the cost of the award as well as the engraving of the recipient’s name. Senate also allocated $525 for the third annual Rising Sophomore Ceremony held at 7 p.m. on April 19 in the Student Center. The event is open to all students, faculty, staff and guests of the nominated freshmen. The breakdown of the budget is as follows: $64.50 for 10 dozen brownies; $72.50 for 10 dozen turtle brownies; $58 for 10 dozen cookies; $39 for five dozen mini cupcakes; $233.20 for eight fruit platters; $17.80 for coffee; $18.50 for tea; and $21 for water.
“This has been a nice strategy to contribute to retention of your peers,” Adviser Deena Kennell said. “So, it would be worthy of your consideration and a good use of your money.”
In another matter, AFB asked Senate to approve the budget recommendations totaling to $135,131.47. Senate approved $120,431.47 of the presented budget, minus the budget requested for The Eagle which came to $14,700 because of questions they had about their operating costs.
After an email discussion that took place early Tuesday, between Vice President of Finance Lukas Klueber, Senator at Large, and AFB member Tierra Snyder, Deena Kennell, and The Eagle advisor Michael Kennedy, these questioned were answered. Voting to approve the budget will take place during the Senate meeting on Monday.
In another matter, CAB’s last Free Movie Night of the semester is on Sunday. Doors open at 6:45 p.m., and students should check the Facebook and Twitter pages for the titles being shown. CAB is also hosting the last Free Bowling Night at Hilltop Lanes from 6-9 p.m. on April 22.
In another matter, Secretary Konery Klueber, on the executive board of the Health and Well-Being Committee, talked to senators about Mental Health Awareness Month.
“April is mental Health Awareness Month, and so be talking to your constituents about it,” Konery Klueber said. “Make sure that you are keeping an eye on your friends, and your dorm mates because that is a big issue on our campus as well as other campuses.”
The Public Relations Club and the Dean’s Counsel would like to invite all CSC students to Memorial Hall on April 30 for a showing of the documentary “Angst.” There will be one showing at 1 p.m., and another at 7 p.m. After the film, students will be asked to break into small groups and talk about “stopping the stigma” against seeking help for mental health related issues.
“As mental health and, especially, anxiety become more and more common in the U.S., students need to see that you are not alone,” Faculty Adviser Kurt Kinbaucher said.
