SA Notes

Shakour announces launch of Colonial Trader Web site

Student Association President Audai Shakour announced his plans for a “reinvigorated resolve” this semester during his State of the SA Address at Tuesday night’s Senate meeting in the Marvin Center.

Shakour announced the launch of the four-months-delayed Colonial Trader Web site, Shakour also will pursue the creation of an ad-hoc committee to make recommended changes to the Student Judicial Services process and said he plans to pursue again a $1-per-credit hour student fee increase.

In the past, Shakour has said the Colonial Trader Web site would be launched from, but that domain would have cost the SA $800, he said Tuesday. Shakour said the domain name was significantly less expensive.

“I personally apologize for the delays in the Colonial Trader site,” Shakour said. “We pushed back the release to ensure the quality of the site.”

Shakour will be working with former political rival Sen. Ben Traverse (CCAS-U), a senior, on a committee to review the student judicial process.

Shakour only briefly mentioned the University’s decision to clear him of sexual harassment and sexual assault charges filed against him by a former female colleague in November. SJS cleared him in December.
