The first Bearcat Days is tomorrow! Be sure to greet all prospective students on campus.

Campaigning for next year’s ASWU President, Vice President and Treasurer is now underway. It began on Monday, March 12 and voting will open on Monday March 19 at 8 a.m. and close at 5 p.m. on March 20. Be sure to check your email and vote for candidates and proposed amendments to ASWU’s constitution.

The ASWU meeting on Thursday March 8 was focused on reviewing the ASWU constitution. The constitution has not been updated for five years and was in serious need of some revisions. Thanks to the executive team and Chief Justice Manful we are rolling out amendments to the ASWU constitution. Needing a two-thirds majority vote to appear on the ballot, all five of the constitutional amendments received unanimous approval by Senate. All of the proposed changes must be voted on by the students at large, so look for those amendments on the ballot, more information has been sent out via email.

The Bearcat Pantry was also unanimously made an official club at the March 8 meeting.

ASWU meeting take place every Thursday at 7 p.m. on the first floor of Ford; all students are welcome.
