CLARION, Pa- The Clarion University Student Senate convened for their weekly general meeting this past Monday Oct. 2 at 7:30 p.m. in Gemmell 246. The Senate touched on the registration of on-campus organizations, the supplemental requests and the possibility of a group conference.
This past week, the budgets for the Student Senate came back from the audit with the supplemental contingency reserve at $40,365 and the overall Senate budget at $25,584.88.
Organizations that have failed to meet the annual re-registration deadline have been placed on inactive status as of this week. These organizations will remain on inactive status until their registration is complete. The Senate will be contacting those organizations privately in the next few days, after which the list will be published on the Student Senate social media outlets.
According to the Campus Safety, Health and Environmental Concerns Committee Chair, Senator Mackenzie Porter, signs will be placed in academic buildings across campus cautioning students on their use of products with strong fragrances. Use of such fragrances can severely affect the health of students and faculty that have allergies to the products. Porter also cautioned students on bringing candy into classrooms during the Halloween season, as there are many students who have severe food allergies as well.
No new business was brought to the table during this meeting, so after a brief open forum in which Trustee Edward Green asked members of the Senate that were unable to attend the retreat that took place last weekend to stay after the general meeting to be updated, the meeting was adjourned at 7:46 p.m. For those in leadership positions in campus organizations that have not yet registered on Cu Connect, look out for correspondence from the Student Senate with instructions on how to do so. The Senate will be meeting at 7:30 p.m. in Gemmell 246 next Monday Oct. 9.
