Student Association Senate holds second meeting

The Plattsburgh State Student Association held its second session Wednesday at 9:15 p.m. in the Cardinal Lounge in the Angell College Center.

PSUC acapella chorus Minor Adjustments, represented by the president/executive director Rachel Covey, attended the meeting and requested $400 to finance their expenses for a workshop hosted at Rainbow Wedding and Banquet Hall in Altona, New York by Sweet Adelines, a fellow acapella group.

The request was approved by the SA with a majority vote in favor of the outing.

President of Plant Powered Tatyana Barlow requested and was approved for $300 for branded sweatshirts which will be available for sale as part of fundraising operations.

Morayooluwa Okesola was appointed, in absentia, as co-chair of Activities Coordination Board Special Events Committee.

Emanuel Paun was approved as co-chair of ACB Athletics Committee after losing his campaign for the position last semester to a student who has since withdrawn from PSUC.

Upon his appointment in the assembly, Paun said, “I intend on making all students feel welcome at all sporting events.”

The Dining Dollars for Donations open on Friday Sept 7 and will remain opened until Sept. 25, when recipients will be chosen.

A “Save the School’s Energy” movement was proposed by Scael Andriamahefa with the backing of SA Senator Ralph Cordeau. The movement will self-elect students to reduce their energy consumption starting at “the individual level.”

The movement proposes that students check academic buildings for computers or lights left on overnight.

The problem is worse in residence halls where lights and appliances remain on throughout the entire day and night. The energy wasted on college campus like PSUC has very negative effects on the environment.

“This is simply an attempt at collectively distributing the weight of efforts among those willing,” Andriamahefa said.

Cordeau supports the campaign fully

“I absolutely love it, there’s no way around it,” Cordeau said.

It was noted in the meeting that SA Elections are around the corner.

The petition pickup is on October 27th, with the due date for applicants falling on November 1st. The election itself is on the 7th of November and the results are set to come out on the 13th of the same month.

The SA holds its meeting every Wednesday at 9:15 p.m. in the Cardinal Lounge of the Angell College Center.
