Notes from senate meeting 3/3/09

Today’s topics discussed in ASG:

From Student Affairs Committee, Brett talked about possible 24 hours lab spaces by next year. A possibility is using the card access at Carnegie for the lab, once everything in there is secured. The old costume shop also called the Red Barn was found to have no historical significance, since they were thinking of utilizing the space for other things.

Springfest’s theme is: Islands of Adventure.

Also plan to go see N.E.R.D.’s concert hosted by GAP.

Social Change, The Red Barn, & More

There were several highlights of today’s meeting (2-24). ASG approved funding for next year’s “The Year of Social Change.” Aims of this year’s theme are to raise Allegheny’s profile, put us on the map of progressive liberal arts colleges, bring big names to campus, and foster student-led programing and organization coalitions. Michael Pollan, author of the famous book, The Omnivore’s Dilema, will be pursued for a speaking engagement.

Student Life concerns included the potential demolition of the red barn by Carr Hall. Some students are proposing to save the building and to convert it to some student organization space. Brett Fuchs, Director of Student Affairs, explained that the barn was never meant as a permanent structure and holds no historical significance. It would cost a great deal to perserve and upgrade safety and security measures. There is currently no room in the college’s Strategic Plan for such maintenance. FYI- The barn was slated for demolition two years ago and was bumped down on the priorities list because of other campus construction. There will be a meeting this Thursday between ASG, Physical Plant, and other concerned students about this matter.

In other news, ACTV will now be broadcasting our weekly meetings. Look for ASG meetings to appear on the schedule in the coming weeks!

Also, discussions between GAP and ASG is still continuing this week. Details and finances about upcoming concert programming are still developing…check the blog again soon for more information.

Unfortunately, the issue of theft on this campus has become a problem. Right now, it is estimated that between $6,000-$8,000 of campus furniture and other property has been stolen. ASG is in talks to start a public relations/ awareness campaign about theft, finances, and trust in our community. ASG would like to encourage students to exercise responsibility and good judgement when using common space and items.

Lastly, ASG Class of 2011, is bringing representives from “Invisible Children” to campus March 24th for a presentation. March 25th, the senators will be holding a scavenger hunt to fundraise money for this cause. More details will be publicized soon. Congratulations to the Class of 2011 for their hard work and dedication to activism. Please support this very worthy cause.

***2009-2010 Cabinet position applications are now available. Contact <fuchs> for more information. Be a part of what we do!***
