Student Government Column

Hello Students,

I hope the school year has been going well for everyone. I wanted to take this opportunity to reach out to all of you and give an update on how the Undergraduate Student Senate has been working hard behind the scenes to improve your Carnegie Mellon experience. We are currently working with the administration to monitor the add/drop deadline policy to see how students feel about it. We are also working with the administration to help create the Consensual Relationships Policy. Our Finance Committee has currently approved over $4,000 to organizations on campus to help them start new initiatives and projects.

With this in mind, starting Oct. 21, we have a new project we are undertaking: Senate Week. Starting on Sunday and going through Thursday, the Senate will be holding various events geared towards students. We want to take this time to meet with our constituents on a more personal level so that we can get feedback on how their experience at Carnegie Mellon has been. Keep an eye out for the Strip Crawl on the 21st. The Campus Life committee will be providing free transportation to and from the Strip District where vendors will be offering Carnegie Mellon Students discounts on various merchandise and food. Look out for the full list of vendors, which will be confirmed soon.

As always, if you have any questions about the Student Senate and what we do, please feel free to email me: Or you can visit us at our table during Scotty Saturday!

Enjoy the rest of your week!
