It has been a great year for the student senate. Your senators have passed 15 bills that will positively impact the school. I will briefly list some of those bills. They passed a bill that will make sure that there is at least two evenings dedicated per week in the gymnasium for soccer. After multiple discussions during our senate meetings, there are gym open hours for the student body.
That means you can go play any sport you want in the gymnasium at certain times outside of intramural. Soon, you will be able to do the same thing at the 49ers field. There will also be a new kitchen in Prescott.. There will be more water fountains around campus at specific locations and a better recycling system.
I am extremely happy that this senate was able to achieve so much in just one school year. I have also worked on making the job of Executive VP at Union to work more with the other executive VPs of the other Seventh Day Adventist universities. I was able to work with them in order to make our senates more helpful to the student body in the quest of making our campuses better.
It has been a privilege and an honor to serve the student body as executive VP this school year. I am happy that I was able to reward all of you with all the things that the student senate did this year. For the remaining couple of weeks of the school year, my job will be to make sure that Roxanna Vasques, the incoming Executive VP is fully equipped for the task ahead during the 2018-2019 school year. Good luck on your finals!
