Student Senate

Student Senate met last Thursday in the Round Room and allocated members to different task forces. Junior Gabe Paz and freshman Sara Brown were voted as members of the Trustees Alumni Hall task force while sophomores Kelly Grant and Greg Noth were elected to as student representatives to the Grievance Panel.

Senators were also updated by Paul Steenis on the MAP grant situation and informed about a rally in Springfield on October 15 in support of funding the grants. Student Senate agreed to encourage students to attend. There are 255 students at Knox who currently use MAP grants as part of their tuition payments.

The senators also voted to allocate $260 to student clubs during this meeting. A motion to burn the couches currently located in the S.S. McClure Publications Office after they were found to be infested with lice was voted down. The couches were later disinfected.
