gssc to get swoll?

As per usual, Bwog brings you a summary of last night’s General Studies Student Council (GSSC) meeting. Highlights include an upcoming fitness challenge and important initiative updates. 

General Studies Student Council kept the second meeting of the semester short and sweet (about 30 minutes). As a reminder, GSSC meetings happen each week on Tuesday evening, and are streamed live on the GSSC Facebook page.

The council announced the upcoming GSSC Fitness Challenge, which will be underway soon. The challenge will consist of three separate phases. Phase 1 will emphasize a variety of exercises to do at home (body weight exercises, etc), and will include several instruction videos. Pawel Maslag, GSSC member, promised to complete weekly challenges (including doing one push-up for every like on the instructional videos). Phase 2 will involve collaboration with other groups on campus, and will include matching up workout buddies at Dodge, and mock workout plans. Phase 3 will feature a day of challenges on campus, including jumping jack and push-up challenges, as well as a fun run.

The council was supposed to present on the survey results of students with disabilities on campus, but pushed the presentation to next week due to a faulty projector. VP of Policy, Raisa Flor, also announced that the new elections rules will be announced on February 13. Furthermore, Flor encouraged GS students interested in improving mental health on campus to attend the Mental Health Initiative this Saturday at noon. Message Raisa Flor if you’re interested in attending.

The council also provided the following announcements:

  • Tomorrow at 7pm, the Jewish Theological Seminary is holding a memorial service for Hannah Weiss, a GS student who previously served as GSSC’s JTS Representative.
  • Glass House Rocks is tomorrow, and will feature free T-shirts, food, and performances from student groups.
  • The GSSC website is still under construction. The Yenta Database of student activities on campus is still in development, and is currently reaching out to different graduate centers and departments on campus to include their events.
