Campus Brief: New student government to meet for first time

Monday night will be the first meeting of the next Undergraduate Student Government administration.

USG President Alex Solis and Vice President David Neely decided to have the first meeting of the new senate to establish future meeting dates.

“This is something that’s very common for USG,” Solis said.

During the meeting the new USG speaker, Melissa Dzienny, will propose meeting dates for the summer and next year and the senate will vote on them.

The meeting will also include the swearing in of new senators that weren’t able to make the swearing-in ceremony this past week, Solis said.

He said there are about five to six new senators to swear in.

All the members of Solis and Neely’s administration have not yet been decided, Solis said.

Solis and Neely are currently accepting applications for members of their cabinet, which are due Friday. They will interview applicants next week and make a decision during exam week.

“We’ve had a good number of applications come in already,” Solis said.

There will also be a USG meeting April 23, which will be the last meeting of the semester, he said.

During the meeting the organization will bring in University Chief Financial Officer Sherideen Stoll to give a budget update.

Solis said he is excited to get started in his new role as USG president.

“It’s still very surreal,” he said. “But it’s starting to set in. I’m pumped for summer, I think it’s going to be a really productive summer.”
