Internal Affairs discussed having senators take a more active role in Student Government. It is a possibility that senators will be grouped together based on shared interests such as women’s and LGBT rights.
“I’d like to see a couple people take more action on what they said they were going to do,” Kiera Fegan, Speaker of the Senate, said. “I don’t want people to become all talk.”
The next regular Senate meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m., Jan. 26 in Student Center 310B. For more information on Student Government, go to emuch.edu/studentgov/index.
