ESC & SGA Roundup: It’s Still Early Days

Your nascent student council

Brief headlines from last nights council meetings. Sean Zimmermann reports from the first Engineering Student Council session:

  • During the summer, recently elected Academic Affairs Representative Huili Zhu notified President Nate Levick that she would not be able to carry out her duties as the Academic Affairs representative in the coming year. The President invited runner up, Dong-Yoon “Tom” Yang, if he would still be interested in the position, subject to the council’s approval. The vote passed, and Yang was elected.
  • Senior Class President Judy Kim reported that, if you were unable to RSVP for the Dean’s Senior Class Engineering reception on Wednesday, you can still pick up your free “gift” (it’s a surprise!) at a later date.

Meanwhile, over at Barnard’s Student Government Association, the following items were addressed:

  • Those intending to run for first year elections had to declare today. Voting will open after Wednesday’s candidate forum and run until Monday at noon.
  • The Barnard Activities Fair is this Friday, from 12-3. Any clubs or governing boards that would like a table should email the SGA.
  • McAC, the Barnard Programming Board, discussed the upcoming Founder’s Day (Oct 11th) and possibility that students will need to swipe in to access the Founder’s Day and Spirit Day BBQs (i.e. no more free food). SGA is trying to find solution to keep these events open to everyone as they traditionally have been.
  • Maya Zinkow, Campus Programming Rep, confirmed that SGA reps will be serving breakfast to freshladies in the quad on October 16th.
