Barnard Bearoness Maddie Stearn is so committed to the game that she covered last night’s SGA meeting BEFORE she knew about the free food. Check out what went down regarding election announcements, Town Halls, and more in this Tuesday’s SGA meeting roundup.
On Monday evening in the hallowed halls of the Diana Café, magic words like “elections,” “free food,” and “swag” ignited the air. A screen was wheeled in, the projector adjusted, and notecards were passed around. Anticipation permeated the atmosphere. Suddenly, the lights went up.
Actually, the lights were already on, but that did not deter from the air of excitement. This week’s SGA meeting began with a presentation from Amanda Ruiz, Sara Heiny, and Sarah Linden on the Academic Curricular Review. As the data collection stage of the ACR comes to a close, the Steering Committee is preparing to present its recommendations for a faculty vote. There will be one final student open session on April 9 from 6:30pm – 8:30pm in Diana LL104. This session will allow the committee heads to present their findings and will have more of a progress report format, as opposed to previous sessions that were more conversation-based. Provost Bell, who attended Monday’s meeting, assured SGA members that nothing is set in stone until the faculty votes on the Steering Committee’s proposal. If Barnard students have any questions, suggestions, or concerns, they can still send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The meeting continued with exciting updates from Campus Life (*ahem* free food is involved). SGA is having a Town Hall on Tuesday, April 7th from 7pm – 9pm in the Diana Event Oval. The event will address Barnard’s tuition increases, meal plans, and SGA endowment projects, among other topics. Students can submit questions ahead of time using the Google doc. Enthusiasm for the event increased exponentially when Shivani Vikuntam, VP for Campus Life, announced that free Thai Market will be served at the Town Hall.
