Samuel Nusbaum, Administration Reporter

Applications to be on the Student Senate will be available starting Wednesday, Oct.26. and will be due on Wednesday Nov. 16.

The Student Senate will discuss these applications and the “It’s On Us” Campaign at its meeting 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Arcola/Tuscola room.

The senate did not meet last week out of respect for Tyler Behnke, who died Monday, Oct. 10. His memorial service was scheduled at the same time as the meeting.

Student Body President Catie Witt said an election for a new Speaker of the Senate will be held during the last meeting of the semester.

Witt also said set up for the “It’s On Us” Campaign is going well, with speaker Jackie Mortillaro lined up to share her experiences. Witt said the time and place Mortillaro will speak is going to be announced at a later date.

Witt said she and her “It’s On Us” Campaign committee are aiming for Mortillaro to either come in March before spring break or April for Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

She said the next committee meeting for the “It’s On Us” Campaign is 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 26 in the Student Activities Center in the Martin Luther King Jr. University Union.

The committee is planning a month full of activities for April and a dodgeball tournament before the semester ends.
