At last week’s Student Government meeting, vice president of administration and finance Tom Verga introduced the possibility of bringing Zipcars to the College.

“I’ve talked with Princeton and I’ve talked to Montclair’s head of parking services,” Verga said. “We are actually going to end up pushing this project and I’m going to meet with the administrator soon.”

Vice president of equity and diversity Sadia Tahir shared several updates on behalf of her committee.

A newsletter, Diversity University, which will aim to provide an information outlet for diverse groups on campus, will be released toward the end of September, according to Tahir. The newsletter will include event information and possibly interviews from cultural, religious, ethnic and sexual orientation organizations on campus.

“It’s going to be one place where you can read up on everything that’s going on with those organizations,” Tahir said. “I think it’s a really good idea because it kind of unites multi-ethnic, sexual orientation (organizations) under one booklet. It’s a win-win for all of us.”

Tahir also announced the Can I Kiss You? campaign, which will start up in the beginning of fall. The committee hopes to bring speaker Mike Domitrz to the College to discuss consent and safe dating.

“I think it would be a really good idea to have him on campus,” Tahir said.

The committee is additionally looking to bring back the Liberty in North Korea event from last semester.

The first Eickhoff themed dinner night, planned by the student services committee, is expected to take place on Wednesday, Sept. 18.

The theme for the night will be a “Grand Slam Eick Dinner,” featuring popular baseball foods, such as hot dogs and an ice cream sundae bar.

Sophomore class representatives announced their design plans for a clothing line with the theme, “#onlyatTCNJ.”

“We are basically going to touch on a bunch of TCNJ characters that everybody knows,” sophomore class president Shap Bahary said.

One T-shirt design in the works will feature a picture of Big Larry on the front and “How you?” on the back, including “#onlyatTCNJ.”
