SGA: Housing Revelations
Katheryn Thayer reports on last night’s SGA meeting.
- Coming up: Barnard Basketball Night! Saturday, February 5, 7pm at Levien Gym. Support the basketball team and breast cancer awareness! With special appearance from Bacchantae, singing the national anthem.
- EcoReps will hold their first potluck of the semester February 2 at 7 in the Diana dining room. The topic of discussion will be energy-related. The school store now has an EcoRep certified section with sustainable products.
- ResLife shared some love by bringing brownies to the meeting, perhaps to sweeten ominous news regarding the most stressful time of the year – housing. The representative mentioned some of their priorities include kitchens and bathrooms in the 600s and renovations made in Plimpton. This summer, they will try to shuffle residents so that they can renovate 600 and 620, keeping 616 open. The work in Plimpton isn’t debatable because there are problems with heat and hot water.
- Barnard and Columbia are working together on a gender-neutral housing initiative. Interesting fact: if your room is too hot, opening the window just disturbs the heating system, which will self adjust to make it hotter!
