ASCC Senate passed motion to support implementing student-government notation, Senators Victor Villalobos and Athena Sanchez were nominated to represent ASCC Senate for the Safety Walk and the new commissioner of financial aid was appointed.

Next Senate meeting will be April 1 at 2 p.m. in room BK-111/112

Eduardo De la Rosa started off the senate meeting by giving a presentation about student-government notation and for ASCC government positions to be added to transcripts.

“We thought it would be beneficial for the school. We discussed it with several VPs and deans on campus and we did our research on how to go about doing something like this,” said De la Rosa

He discussed how this would be beneficial for student government members to help elaborate on skills that they might not be able to input in their admission statements.

According to De la Rosa this was previously on transcripts but taken off because transcripts also listed any club involvement. The amount of lines and text were magnanimous and really decreased the value of the transcript.

Senate passed the motion to support implementing student government notation.

Victor Villalobos and Athena Sanchez were nominated to represent Senate for the Safety Walk, which will be held on Monday, March 30 at 7:30 p.m.

Campus police, administration and student government officials will come together to walk around campus to vulnerable areas that could pose as a potential danger to night students.

Victor Villalobos said, “We’re trying to work on the safety of the campus especially at night because I know [night students] are underrepresented.”

Anyone is free to participate in the Safety Walk. “I’d like to see some night students there. They’re the ones who have to deal with those safety concerns at night and we want to reach out to them to see if they’d be willing to come.”

Benjamin Flores gave a speech listing reasons on why he wanted the Commissioner of Financial Aid position.

After he stated his experience, Aldemar Sanchez informed Senate that Flores in the past was part of the ASCC Senate but was rude to fellow senators and later resigned. Flores was questioned on how he had improved himself.

After listening to Flores’s responses, senate decided to give him a “second chance” and was appointed the new Commissioner of Financial Aid.
