The short student senate meeting on Wednesday, May 8, 2019 began with a review of prom and prom costs, as well as a look toward future proms.

“Next year it’s the Graduate, which we’re getting a discount on,” faculty adviser Steve Tygrett said. “The next year after that is not scheduled yet. If we’re scheduling for two years out, what is the preference [on location]?”

The senate debated locations and settled on a preference for the Iowa Memorial Union. It then moved on to a discussion of the class president election.

“The candidates will be excused from fifth and sixth periods to practice speeches,” Tygrett said. “The vice presidential candidates will go first, and then the presidential candidates.”

Faculty adviser Chip Hardesty mentioned a possible program of packaging excess cafeteria food and recycling it to give to students.

“I did a project in AP Research, and part of it was calculating food waste,” Vice President Naomi Meurice ’19 said. “The numbers that are in a computer…there was minimal extras that were made and apparently the extras go back in the fridge and are used again. According to the food staff, there is not much waste.”

The senate meets every Wednesday at 8:10 in Room 3311. To learn more, attend meetings, which are open to all students, or contact one of the faculty advisers: Judith Dickson, Melanie Gibbens, Chip Hardesty, or Steve Tygrett.
