In The Chambers: Dec. 5

ASWU President

Well… it’s official. Christmas season has arrived and is in full swing! The campus is decorated and there are at least 10 Christmas parties to attend. I can’t wait to drink hot chocolate and drive around to look at all of the wonderful Christmas lights. Oh yeah, and somewhere in between all of the holiday cheer find time to do school work. Speaking of school… Aren’t finals coming up soon?! Anyway, remember to spread the holiday cheer and pay it forward to those around Whitworth. This week do a random act of kindness for someone you care about.

This past week in the chambers we had Kerry Breno come to speak to ASWU about the sustainability efforts within the 2021 plan. There is a committee that meets regularly to ensure that sustainability within Whitworth is moving forward. They are focusing on things such as food and water conservation. Recently, Sodexo put on a sustainability challenge. Congratulations to the winners and keep up the good work! This committee is working very hard to keep themselves accountable to the sustainability goals planned out in the 2021 plan. They also have student representatives on this board. Please email Kerry if you have any questions or want to learn more.

This past Sunday Unite had its “Dream Workshop” where students, faculty and community members came together to dream big. Creative and intellectual ideas were presented on how to stand up and speak out against the issue of human trafficking. The Unite team is currently working on a video with Darrien Mack to further educate people and expand our reach. A grant is also being applied for to go toward the capstone week happening in the spring. We will be excited to celebrate with all of you because of everything that has been done this year in regard to combating the issue of human trafficking.

ASWU is extremely thankful for all of you! We are happy to be serving you this year and look forward to another semester. There is much more to come, but please let us know if there is anything you would like to be seeing on campus or within ASWU. Email me anytime and I would love to hear your thoughts! Don’t forget to check out our meetings next semester every Wednesday at 5 p.m. I look forward to seeing you around campus and make sure to say hello!

Live Bold. Be Fierce.
