The first meeting of the Spring 2019 Student Senate went off without a hitch on Monday, Jan. 21. Jon Allen, Director of the Organization of Student Activities and Greek Life (OSAGL) and the adviser of Student Senate gave a presentation on parliamentary procedure as it related to the governing body. He stressed the need for decorum, advising that the quorum should speak to express their opinion, not to respond or retort, as has been the case in previous semesters.

Parliamentarian Abby Hauer ’21 recapped the past semester’s constitutional amendments.
