SA Senate Notes

Senate holds last meeting
The 2002-2003 Student Association Senate held its last meeting Tuesday night. On the table for consideration were more than 25 bills and resolutions, a record for a final senate meeting. Many of these were amendments to SA bylaws.

Resolutions passed urging the University to allow GW graduates to keep their e-mail accounts longer, asking the D.C. City Council to make textbook purchases tax free and a resolution requesting the University expand the number of health science major spots available to pre-med. students. The last measure was passed unanimously.

SA cuts cost of transition dinner
After weeks of negotiations with various venues, the SA will hold its transition dinner in the Marvin Center this year.

The event is predicted to cost approximately $6,000, less than half of the $12,600 spent last year.

Robinson to release list of accomplishments
Outgoing SA President Phil Robinson is expected to release the official list of his accomplishments for the year Friday.

Accomplishments include negotiating with administrators to get more study abroad options, revamping the SA office, advocating for increased allocations for 4-RIDE and pushing for the expansion of Mount Vernon shuttle to a 24-hour service, a change which will take effect next fall.
