Connect with student senate during Snack & Chat

December 5, 2013 - 6:10pm

Student senate met Nov.22 to determine goals for the year in Gray Wolf 166. This year, they’re focusing primarily on five different goals, with each goal being met by a committee. The issues at hand are New Ideas, Financial Aid, Advising, Student Involvement and Textbook Alternatives. These goals were enacted last year and are subject to change. Goals will be fully set by Dec. 6, said ASB President Katie Rodgers.

These Senate committees work to represent student goals and ideas.

Student senators proposed and passed Snack & Chat, the table around campus with the big red canopy over it. Snack & Chat gives students a chance to talk to their student senators and make suggestions so that they are better represented. There’s also free food. Rodgers was on the committee to start Snack & Chat.

“I was so honored to be able to see that come to fruition” said Rodgers. “As a student at a community college, there’s such a high turnover rate that you don’t really get to see your ideas come to life.” Snack & Chat hopes to bridge that gap between students and ASB for all students, said ASB VP of Public Relations Kyle Millett.

At the latest Snack & Chat, held Nov. 19, there were fliers for clubs, events and information packets for student government. There was also an empty sheet of paper, where students were encouraged to write down goals for the senate to consider. Parking and cheaper textbooks were key issues as always, but some students simply asked for more of the pie they were handing out. And if students suggest something that ASB government can’t really change, then they’ll try to pass word along to people who can make changes, said Millett.

Snack & Chat is not a new idea, but improves on the old table that ASB used to set up. It was at the same time and in the same place, and that doesn’t reach many students. In order to reach more students, Snack & Chat is located in different areas of the campus at different times with the incentive of free food. Millett plans to expand Snack & Chat to East County Campus and the aviation program as well as reaching students who attend school at night.

Needless to say, I’ve never played at a paying concert before and I’m incredibly nervous. Looking over my shoulder, I notice a familiar face. To my surprise, I see the guy who sold me my textbooks a week before.
