ASUA Notebook: Senate Meeting Oct. 24

At the weekly Associated Students of the University of Arizona Senate meeting fees were allocated, senator reports were given, and ASUA day and flyers were discussed.

ASUA will be on the Mall on Oct. 30 to hear student concerns. Senator Bryan Namba planned the event and Senator Vinson Liu planned the office hours for the senators to be on the Mall during the event. At least three senators will be on the Mall at a time for office hours.

Sen. Liu also discussed the ASUA flyers he will put up around the student union, residence halls, and academic departments for one month. The flyers will have the ASUA contact info to increase their accessibility towards students. The Senate allocated $71.97 to create 200 flyers.

In senator reports, Senator Taylor Ashton reported that his syllabus survey was on the ASUA website and sent out to the ASUA admin listserv.

Senator Jake Barman reported that Alpha Epsilon Pi and Pi Kappa Alpha are “going green.” Senator Logan Bilby reported that a student survey would be released soon on Spring Fling in order to get a larger student voice.

Senator Danielle Novelly met with student affairs to help create a syllabus for the recreation classes. The syllabus needs to be approved before further steps are taken. Also, she is still working on removing bacon off the list of foods the school considers healthy.

ASUA President Katy Murray reported that next week is the last week for early voting for the presidential election, she starts student regent interviews tonight, and she is working with the Arizona Students Association on changes to their policies and procedures.
