Student Government President Tyler Liberty announced at the general body meeting on Wednesday, March 26, that Funival planning is in the works.
Funival is one of the most anticipated events of the year, falling on Friday, May 2, the day following the last day of spring classes. There will be games, rides, good music and tons of fun food vendors selling carnival favorites.
Early in the meeting, speaker Devin Dimmig introduced a new bill that affects the distribution of class council seats.
Dimmig explained that the position of Senators at Large has been eliminated, so Student Government has three extra spots available that will be put toward the sophomore, junior and senior class councils.
The bill was passed and will go into effect for the upcoming elections, so as of next year, there will be seven freshman class council seats and five per each of the other class councils.
“This makes the class council a more dynamic part of SG,” Vice President of Governmental Affairs Alex Brown said. “It provides more leadership opportunities to students who want to get involved.”
Later, Vice President of Academic Affairs Adam Bonnano talked about the new wall that is outside the Brower Student Center.
Inside a magnifying glass pained on the wall, it says “Do you have a clue about TCNJ’s academic resources?”
“It is part of the NORM campaign to increase the use of academic resources on campus,” Bonnano said. “These resources are so beneficial in so many ways. The stats on the board prove it.”
The board includes statistics from the Tutoring Center, Career Services and Counseling and Psychological Services, or CAPS.
Vice President of Equity and Diversity Sadia Tahir proudly announced that the second issue of Diversity University is officially out as of Tuesday, March 25.
This issue talks about the history of the black freedom movement, Queer Inclusive Bible Study, Students for Disabilities Awareness as well as several other groups and events on campus that celebrate diversity.
