III. Announcements and Constituent Concerns
Any progress regarding extra benches around the Hardin Gazebo?
o Dr. Carney-Hall: There are current
conversations/willingness regarding additional benches, however, it is hard to
make a case for new/additional resources when current resources are being damaged.
specific damage includes burn marks on the Hardin Gazebo benches, Stickers (the
chalk is ok!), and the removal of signage.
Constituents are asking about their standing regarding credit class vs cohort
(year, ie class of 2014)
o Dr. Carney-Hall
o Housing purposes: it has been decided that
cohort class will be used
o Formal mail-outs: both cohort and credit
class are often used
o Email/senate notes: credit class is often
used (If you would like to be added to your cohort senate notes contact Shiffrawat@hendrix.edu)
o Voting: this issue often comes up and it is
up to the senate to change (currently voting is on a credit basis), if we would
like to change voting to cohort, we would have to motion/vote to make this
