Student Senate to talk HERC collaborations

Jelan Buchanan, Reporter

The Student Senate will let the executive board members and committee chairs give their reports and continue to explain what their plans are for this semester at its meeting Wednesday in the Arcola/Tuscola room of the Martin Luther King Jr. University Union at 7 p.m.

Student Body President Carson Gordon said she will talk about the projects she has planned with Health Education Resource Center this semester. 

She met with them Feb. 6 to discuss some collaborations they were organizing, but Gordon said everything is still in the works. 

She said she is going to bring the topic up to the other senators to keep them informed on what is to come in the next few months.

Gordon and Election Commissioner, Ethan Osborne, have been planning and meeting with each other to finalize the details of the student body election that will take place in March.

“We believe we have all the dates finalized but we run it by all of our advisers first and have them double check dates and everything, so it’s in the process right now,” Gordon said.

After running all of the information by the advisers to make sure everything looks correct, Gordon said they plan to make sure the scheduling location works.

This helps so that they can schedule informal meetings and candidates’ meetings before the election starts. 

Afterward, the information for the student body election will become public for the students of the university to review and they will send out the application packets for students.

The application packets will be located in the Student Activities Center and will be posted on the Student Government social media accounts. 

An application for student senators can be found online on the Senate’s website under “applications.”

A note on the Senate website encouraged students to attend senate meetings and introduce themselves to the senate and to speak to the speaker of the senate about becoming a senator.
