Tuesday, Oct. 26, the Senate of the Student Government Association discussed the upcoming meeting with Campus Safety and talked to the Asian Cultural Awareness club about bringing the hip-hop group, Far East Movement, to the college.
At 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 2, Senate will have an open discussion with Campus Safety, during which the officers will respond to any questions or concerns raised by the students.
While Senate is always open for any student to attend, this meeting will be held in a larger venue and all students are encouraged to attend discussion.
"We're hoping to get a really big turnout for this. We've been hearing a lot about Campus Safety, from confusion over parking spaces to unpleasant interactions. We want this talk to be really productive," Alex Stark, SGA president, said.
Senate also heard from two members of ACA who proposed their idea to bring the all Asian-American hip-hop group, Far East Movement, to the college for Spring Fling.
"We want to bring this group to Skidmore because they're really good Asian-American role models. We'd like to have them do a concert, as well as a question and answer session during the weekend," said Allan Wu '11, member of ACA.
The ACA has approached many of Skidmore's clubs and departments and so far has 16 interested in helping to bring the group to campus. ACA has raised about half the money needed, but would require a supplement and a loan from SGA.
The ACA is still in talks with the hip-hop group and is currently fundraising. SGA showed support and urged the group to return once it had more concrete details.
