During its brief meeting on Wednesday, March 14, Student Government announced several upcoming events throughout the remainder of the semester.
Kelly Kosch, senior English and secondary education double major, announced Autism Awareness Week, which will run from March 26 to April 2.
The week will include a series of events and will feature two speakers. Kosch also told students that NBC is also doing a special on the speaker and author who will be coming to the College on March 29, and anticipates that he will be filmed during his lecture so all students are encouraged to attend.
Kosch also announced that Relay for Life will be held on April 13 and will follow a carnival and circus theme. Lion tamers are also expected to be featured.
Sadia Tahir, junior biology major, announced that SG is co-sponsoring with prism for Transgender Awareness Week.
Tahir said that the bathrooms on the first floors of most campus buildings will be transgender for the week.
There will also be a film screening on March 28 at 7:30 p.m. in the Library Auditorium, according to Tahir, of “Ma vie en rose,” which translates as “My life is pink” in English. The Belgian film tells the story of a boy who grows up insisting to others that he is supposed to be a girl.
SG advisor Magda Manetas also encouraged all students to attend the sessions for the new system that will be replacing SOCS because she said that it is crucial to have student input.
“Without student feedback, they’ll go entirely on what faculty want,” she said.
The third and final posibility is being presented on Thursday, March 22 in the Library Auditorium. There is a morning session at 11 a.m., an afternoon session at 2 p.m. and a hands-on session in the Library at 1 p.m. All students are encouraged to participate.
Senior class council announced that its next senior night will be on March 30 at the Field House in Philadelphia. Tickets will be on sale on March 26, 27 and 29.
There will also be a junior and senior night at Bar A in Belmar on April 17. Tickets will be on sale the week before.
