Housing causes tensions

In the Round Room of CFA last week, Student Senate met to discuss a variety of issues, primarily the approval of the special interest housing applications recommended for approval.

Initially given approval for houses were the Q&A House and the Early Bird Special House. Approval for block housing was given to Reel House, Post-Apocalypse House and Top-Hat House.

Contention occurred when students in support of another application that did not receive approval, the Football Flat, questioned why they were not given the go-ahead. Overall, Senate decided to send the list back to committee and voted down the recommendations as a whole.

Next, Technology Chair Chris Bugajski presented the results of an investigation he had been making into changing the channels offered on the campus cable network.

“This stuff costs a lot of money,” Bugajski said. “It’s going to be a long road ahead.”

Bugajski further said that he and members of his committee would be tabling in Seymour Union over the next few weeks to gather student opinion on what they would like to see changed with the campus television offerings.

Finally, the topic of Wallace Lounge was brought up as a side note. According to members of the Senate Exec board, there is a plan in the works to spruce up the largely unusable space for the coming school year, with major work to be done for the 2011-2012 school year.
