In the Chambers: October 3

by Molly Beth Hough
ASWU President

A very Hipster Homecoming has invaded the campus and we are eager for the week’s events! Make sure to look for all of the incredible activities that are happening around campus. They are all leading up to the homecoming game and dance! So grab your typewriters and vintage coffee mugs and head to the service station for the dance of all dances!

This past week in the chambers we had two guest speakers. Grant Casady, assistant professor in the Biology department, came to speak about a new environmental studies minor. This will be an interdisciplinary minor that includes 11 departments. It is a great opportunity for students. Seth Owens, off-campus representative, was put on a committee to help form this minor. He will be the student voice so make sure to speak to him if you have any questions or ideas. Brian Benzel, vice president of finance and administration, spoke to ASWU about new plans for the bookstore. A committee has been formed to view the new proposals for the bookstore and both Jonny Whitmore and Blaine Eldredge will represent the student voice on it.

The ministry known as YoungLives cares for teen moms in Spokane. They have multiple clubs all over the city and they truly care for these women holistically. YoungLives is doing “Jeans for Teens” and asking for any jeans you are willing to give away. It will provide clothing for these women as they are going through a transition phase in their life. The boxes will be located in the HUB, East, and Warren. Contact Samantha Keogh if you have any questions.

ASWU meets every Wednesday at 5 p.m. and I would like to personally invite you to the meeting. E-mail Tim Gjefle if you would like a free dinner for that night! I look forward to seeing you all there.
Please come up and introduce yourself if you have not already. I would love to meet you and hear how the year is going. Let us know if you would like to see ASWU do anything we are not doing already. We are here to serve you and hope that is being communicated!

Live Bold. Be Fierce.
