ESC: EC Is Getting A Turnstile!
Sean Zimmermann reports on last night’s ESC meeting.
- ESC Sustainability Liaison Will Cybriwsky, in collaboration with GreenUmbrella, GreenBorough, and Eco Reps, is working to organize a “book swap,” where students would give their used textbooks to ESC after the semester. The council would then sell the books for the student, and give them the money from the sale. If the book doesn’t sell, the book is returned to the student. The idea is to encourage student to recycle books while also giving students the real market rate for their books (instead of the book store, which only pays students a percentage of the market rate).
- Council members discussed that, according to dinning services, only 30 students so far have used the newly implemented takeout options at JJ’s place. This comes as a surprise to both the council and Dinning Services, as the lack of JJ’s takeout was one of the most common complaints in the recent dining survey.
- Though the council discussed splitting the current amnesty policy proposal into two separate initiatives, one for individual students and one for groups, it was decided that the council would vote on a single updated proposal, which would offer amnesty to both individuals and groups, at the next meeting. Under the proposal passed by CCSC, student groups hosting an event, as well as students in the immediate vicinity, would receive amnesty if a student called CAVA.
- ESC President Chris Elizondo reported EC will receive an electronic turnstile for a second entrance. This should decrease the amount of time required to get into EC during busy nights, and is a small step in the council’s continuing efforts to expand the swipe system on campus.
