Their second event has a wider focus. “History of our excellence” will bring in guest speakers including alumni and local community members to talk about women of color in history. They plan to provide appetizers and snacks. Senate approved $73.28 for the event.

Health and Wellness chairperson Tina Jeon, junior, talked about the self-care kits she is putting together. The next steps are judging interest from students and purchasing items.

Senate also discussed a second survey about the graffiti wall, which was sent out after the meeting. Vice President Carly Rieger, sophomore, also updated Senate on the chairperson elections, which are happening now. The election ends 10 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 29.
