The Associated Students meeting on Wednesday Oct. 12 was not held in its usual place in the Student Union instead, it was held Scripps Cottage.

Facilities Committee Chair Patty Masengale said the reason they decided to have their meeting in Scripps Cottage was because the location was the first meeting place for Associated Student in the 1930s, before the Student Union was built.

“It’s nice to think about where we came from and reflect on our values,” she said.

Masengale said those values include compromising, being proactive, being brave and speaking up.

University Affairs Board

University Affairs Board Chair Chimezie Ebiriekwe said he is working with the university senate about the academic planning policy section. He also said he is working on a change regarding course forgiveness.
