Clarion, Pa.- An hour-long Student Senate meeting hosted by President Jarrett Boxley on Monday night at 7:30 p.m. saw another Clarion Recognized Student Organization approved, continuing the constant trend of this semester.
It was decided unanimously to recognize the National Society of Leadership and Success as the newest addition to the Clarion RSO family.
The meeting’s new business consisted almost entirely of excusing senators from missing meetings and events due to sickness and private issues. However, some of the meeting’s participants did have important things to say regarding the past and future business of Student Senate.
Adviser Shawn Hoke attended a meeting last week regarding discussion with the Clarion Parent Organization on addressing the needs of the student body. Advocacy for student funds and issuing grants were the important subjects of discussion, and both groups would like to partner to tackle issues not being addressed and that may be affecting students and families.
Looking ahead, November is shaping up to be a busy month for the university and its senate. The week of Nov. 7 hosts Wingo on that Saturday, the Social Equity Dinner on Nov. 11 and the admission open house on Nov. 14.
It was noted that the new book store coming to the Suites on Main will be finished on Nov. 30 and will be ready for the spring book rush on Jan. 16.
The Accounting Club requested $1,840 in funds to attend a conference. The motion to approve the allocation of these funds was carried, but with three votes against the request.
The Public Relations Student Society and Ad Club recently returned from a conference and relayed their experience. The 2015 Tri-State Public Relations Society of America Conference was said to be insightful and a good opportunity that allowed attendees to network with professionals in the field.
