Student Senate passed Bill 64-3 which will fund the new Executive Assistant of United Cultures of Bethel Stipend of $800. If the position is made permanent the stipend will no longer come from the Senate General Fund and would be subject to change. 

Extra funding to Clubs and Organizations

Changing freshmen visitation hours

Per the request of the Assistant Resident Directors, Student Senate discussed writing a statement of opinion in support of expanding freshman vis hours from 4 p.m. through 10 p.m to 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. The statement was voted down in favor of releasing the faculty cuts statement first and changing wording.
