The revamped site will have a new layout so that each student will be able to log into their own personal account with the Student Activities Office and view a calendar with an updated list of the SA events. This process is expected to take a few months. Andrews’ official contract is under negotiation with the communications committee. Also during the meeting, there was a discussion on how to best get the voice of the student body heard and represented through the senate as effectively as possible.New committee meets for first timeThe Committee on Examining and Evaluating Student Engagements, Opportunities and Social Atmosphere on Campus, led by Students’ Association Vice President and senior Katherine DelBalso, met Wednesday night for the first time. While exactly how the mission of the ad-hoc committee of the SA will be executed has yet to be decided, methods the group plans to implement include a survey and focus groups. “The goal is to have the first ever student- generated theory on what students are engaged in outside the classroom,” Goldblatt said. “The aim of the committee is to really find out what students’ thoughts are in regards to campus life outside of academics.”Reporting by Martin Fernandez, Bonnie Jarrett and Andrew Bruml.
