Miranda Liming, editor-in-chief

Student Senate returned to business Tues., Jan. 25, for the second meeting of the spring semester.

Resolution 001, authored by Senators Lessor, Buchanan, Pickard, and Secretary Bertolasio, was presented and states: “A resolution pertaining to the repairing of the door handle on the upstairs door in the Social Sciences building leading to the Humanities building.”

According to the written resolution, “The handle is broken and the door is unusable from the push to open side; this damaged door hinders students walking between the buildings; and the door reflects poorly on the campus in its current state.”

No questions were asked on this resolution, and it was passed unanimously.

In other senate news, Senator Stormy McClary was appointed into the empty floor leader position.

Treasurer Myka Sederis reported a balance of $23,902.65. Sederis also clarified that this balance will change before next week’s meeting because “everything will be updated.”

Campus association Sigma Alpha Mu requested $500 from Student Activities for various club necessities. Senate and the Financial Review Committee voted in favor to provide the funds.

President Myka Phillips reminded senators that there are currently two open senate positions, and voting for those seats will begin on Tues., Feb. 1, during the senate meeting. Students who are interested in becoming a member of student senate should visit the Student Activities office, room 120 in the Student Center.
