In the final bittersweet GSSC meeting of the year, the council spent their night going over the accomplishments of the council in the past school year, as well as appreciating their time with one another. Lovely! GSSC Bureau Chief Andrew Chee is here with the recap from the Jed Satow Room.
Dean Rosen-Metsch started off GSSC also talking about issues that she and the council have been working on, including financial insecurity, financial aid, food insecurity, and so on. She talked at length about the survey that was pushed a few months ago and the data correlating financial and food insecurity with decreased academic performance and overall stress. She also touched upon the search for the new Dean of Students, saying that there is a committee comprised of other deans and various student leaders tasked with finding a suitable replacement. While none of this is new information, it’s great to see that Dean Rosen-Metsch knows what’s important to the GS community and is constantly updating us so we know that she isn’t forgetting about us. Also lovely!
Dean Rosen-Metsch announced three major upcoming events, which include:
Two significant motions that passed include approval of a surplus of funds to be allocated toward subsidized Metrocards for students and the approval of a Bacchanal governing board, to increase accountability and oversight over the Bacchanal planning process. Extremely lovely!
GSSC’s Accomplishments for the Year
The council also ran through big and small policies and accomplishments that were executed this year, including but not limited to:
Finally and maybe most importantly, Snack Attacks will take place for the next two weeks in the GS Lounge! That wraps up GSSC for the semester and school year, so good luck to everyone studying!
