The First ASB Senate meeting of the quarter occurred on Friday, Jan. 18 in order to go over future events and issues for our campus. The meeting covered several happenings on campus as well as Senate changes.

Many exciting future events were discussed during the meeting. From the Candyland Club Fest on Thursday, Jan. 31 to a concert featuring former American Idol contestant Rayvon Owens on Thursday, Feb. 7.

The Senate also brainstormed for what the Senate terms as smart goals. Smart goals are the senate’s aims to improve life on campus. Past smart goals included researching and implementing the food pantry.


We want to achieve something beneficial for the students. Something the student needs.”

— Riza Hassan

“We want to achieve something beneficial for the students. Something the student needs,” said Riza Hassan, the ASB VP of Administration.

Off campus, the executive council of the Senate will be traveling to Olympia for Advocacy day on Jan. 24th. The council will be advocating for issues on campuses as well as to learn about governing.

Emmerson Hunter, ASB Senate President, said that one thing she would like to bring up to legislators if they have a chance to meet with them is having staff and students receive training on how to respond in the event that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is on campus on how to respond.

The Student Services and Activities (S&A) committee announced they spent $4,000 of their $42,516 budget for an ice machine for the athletic department which is used for treating injuries.  The S&A is a new committee on campus, which uses $10.80 per credit for up to 10 credits as part of student fees to fund campus clubs and organizations.

As for the Senate’s members, Riza Hassan announced that he was leaving EVCC after this quarter ended. Hassan invited senators and potential student senators to apply for the position as of spring quarter when he will vacate the position.
