Groups keep houses for next 3 years

Delta Upsilon and Community Living Center have received word that after review by a housing committee that they will remain in their houses.

Rumors have held that all three groups kept their house bids placed in January.

“I haven’t heard any rumors to the contrary,” secretary of Drama House Margaret Coit said.

Decisions were finalized on Wednesday, but would not be made public until all three groups receiving special interest housing had picked up their notification letters.

“We’re in this house still,” House manager for CLC and senior Sara Taubman said. “We think it is the best place possible for us. We’re all really happy about it.”

All the groups keeping the houses will remain in the houses for another three years.

Group Advocacy System discussed at summit

In an effort to address questions raised by club members about the Group Advocacy System adopted last November, members of the Students’ Association Senate attended the second Student Organizations Summit Wednesday night.

Organized by senior Paul Linczak, the summit brought representatives from six student groups — Amnesty International, the Black Students’ Union, the Campus Times, UR Cinema Group, UR Concerts and the Newman Community.

According to Speaker of the Senate Ashley Connor, the new system has not been completely successful due to miscommunication between groups and their senator advocates. “Apparently some of our senators haven’t been doing their jobs,” Connor said.

“We’re not trying to micromanage groups,” Connor said. According to the Group Advocacy System, many student organizations have been assigned senators that will attend the group’s meetings and events in hope that all SA groups will be equally and accurately represented at senate meetings.

In this way, Senate hopes to establish a useful communication network between groups and the main governing body of the SA.
