This week’s ESC meeting was a little uneventful. The current council members shared event updates and touched upon the lack of funding from other student groups. The final moments of the meeting touched upon some successful initiatives during this past year.
Yesterday evening, Engineering Student Council met for one final melancholic meeting with the current council’s members. However, this wasn’t too sad given the election of many current members to new roles within the upcoming ESC council. As such, this short meeting focused on a few updates, while the council members then transitioned from a group hug into explaining any transition information to the council members-elect.
Final Events Updates
The Residence Hall Leadership Organization (RHLO) is hosting its annual send-off on Butler Lawns, Thursday April 10th, between 5:00 and 8:00 PM. They’re going to have inflatables, a pseudo-dunk tank (which will be “less dangerous”), and other activities. Similarly, April 30th is SEAS the Day, which “will be huge.” There will be a waffle truck, Shake Shack, giveaways for flip flops, tank tops, and SEAS shirts, drinks, food, a “beach-ish theme,” and (hopefully) good weather.
Because JCCC funds student groups in ratios depending on the undergraduate makeup of the groups, different schools have given funding over the past year in different amounts. This became apparent at the last meeting of JCCC, as CCSC and GSSC have essentially run out of funding unlike ESC and SGA. According to current VP for Finance (and President-Elect) Aida Lu, ESC is willing to dip into their surplus to fund these groups for “what they deserve.”
What ESC Is Proud Of
In the final moments of this iteration of ESC, the council went around in a circle explaining what they were most proud of in the past year. Responses included the following:
