Student Senate encourages students to speak up

Debby Hernandez, Administration Editor

The Student Senate will encourage writing on the Doudna steps as part of its “your voice matters” campaign in which students will get a chance to voice their opinions on campus.

Student Body President Reginald Thedford said students will be allowed to write out their concerns and opinions on the steps outside of the Doudna Fine Arts Center.

“Students will write words to express what they feel about Eastern and changes they want to see,” Thedford said.

He said students interested in writing on the Doudna steps will be provided with chalk and guided in the process.

“Student Government members will be writing as well as inviting students to join,” Thedford said. “We will tell students what they can write, but nothing that will be too controversial.”

He said writing on the steps was initiated to encourage students to voice out their opinions in an area where many students like to hang out.

“This is the first time Student Government has done something like this,” Thedford said.

He said it will be a simple way to get students involved.

“It will be a very informal event” Thedford said. “We want to keep it open and fun.”

The writing will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday at the steps outside of Dounda.
