Student Government began its meeting on Nov. 28 by hosting men’s basketball, who persuaded the General Body on why its should be considered an official club at the College.
The group claimed there is currently a lot of interest for the team, with two sophomores ready to lead once the seniors graduate in the spring.
Recreational Basketball has been on campus for multiple years at the College and gained recognition by the Sport Club Advisory Council, but Men’s Basketball intends on hosting tryouts for competitive membership, introducing tournaments and fostering a community that offers recreational basketball to students across campus.
Men’s Basketball was voted a club at the College by the SG general body.
SG then welcomed Don Trahan from the Office of Student Diversity and Inclusion to present. He spoke in front of the general body on the topic of universal inclusion, claiming that students should have more foundation to decide if the College fosters an inclusive atmosphere on campus.
Trahan emphasized that universal inclusion is a model and mindset that the College is still in the process of trying to fully achieve.. He also claimed that the inclusivity will be very intentional, especially considering President Kathryn Foster’s prioritization of diversity on campus.
Taylor Mislan, a senior communication studies major and vice president of student services, announced that Finals Fest is coming, but that details about the event have not been decided. She was able to confirm that SG plans on providing smoothies, bagels and pizza at the event.
On Monday, Dec. 3 at 7 p.m., there will be an Active Shooter Preparedness Training taking place in room 100W of the Brower Student Center. This event is free and open to everyone. Campus Police will be present to prepare participants on what to do in the case of an active shooter.
SG announced its Freshman Class Council election results. The organization congratulated Laura Yuan as president-elect, Ami Patel as vice president-elect of operations and Alea Ferrigno as vice president-elect of public relations.
