Housing Senator Mennambike Gowreishankar shared the topics from a recent Future Housing committee meeting, including ideas like a new 24-hour retail store and commons areas. She also will be meeting with the Director of Residence Life to discuss current housing issues and with the Auxiliary Services director to discuss cafeteria food.
The Hasan School of Business lab is still closed, said HSB Senator Sarah Bennett, because the main purpose of that lab is for it to be a CIS lab.
ASG members also discussed President David Fresquez revising student complaint forms. Several members suggested calling the forms “Student Concern Forms,” making them smaller, including a resolution section on the back, or adding the ASG logo to them.
They also suggested making the forms more accessible to students by sending an email with the form to all students, placing forms in residence halls, or mailing them as a postcard.
