The Undergraduate Student Government (USG) senate unanimously voted to pass a resolution stating that the senate will pressure Stony Brook University faculty and staff to conform to university policies regarding course syllabi and textbook requisitions at its final meeting of the semester Thursday evening.
Undergraduate Student Government elections closed on Friday, officially establishing junior biology major Garry Lachhar as the next president of USG and making the $99.50 student activity fee mandatory for undergraduate students for the next two years.
Heated remarks and impassioned debate dominated a series of budgeting decisions at the Oct. 10 Undergraduate Student Government Senate meeting. The senate fiercely contested changes to the student government’s annual budget, the recognition of one club and funding for another. One student publication nearly lost all of its funding.
In a continuation of the Undergraduate Student Government’s effort to garner feedback from students, USG will hold a series of town hall meetings this year called SB Voice events. The events complement the SB Voice forum launched on the USG website this summer.
