New RSOs to present to Student Senate

Luis Martinez, Administration Editor

Three newly approved registered student organizations will give more details on their groups to the Student Senate during its meeting Wednesday.

The senate approved three new RSOs during its last meeting, including the Longboarding club, Delta Alpha Phi and The Game of Thrones club.

Reginald Thedford, the student body president, said the RSOs would come to the senate to give a presentation about their organizations.

“They came to Student Government to be approved,” Thedford said. “Now they’re coming to discuss what their RSO is about and give a presentation.”

During the presentation, the senate members will look at what the mission statements for the organization are, as well as why the RSOs are important. The presentations will also provide an in-depth look into the organizations.

The senate will also discuss an upcoming recruitment event called “Bowling With the Senators” that will take place from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Thursday.

The event will allow students to meet with the senators on a more social basis as well as express their possible interest in joining Student Government.

Senators are encouraged to invite guests who show interest in joining as well.

Thedford said he would be giving some updates on the future of “It’s On Us,” which is a national campaign for sexual assault awareness.

He said he would introduce the presentation he is working on about how to avoid instances of sexual assault during spring break.

Thedford said the presentation would talk about important facts for both male and female students to avoid these types of situations.

The senate will meet at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Arcola/Tuscola Room of the Martin Luther King Jr. University Union.
