Miami University Associated Student Government (ASG) spent their Tuesday evening meeting last week discussing a bill that would place a cap on student organization funding.
This spring, candidates for student body president will face tighter spending caps and more lenient rules for election violations.
ASG voted on Tuesday to pass a resolution supporting "flexible" buffet swipes, where a swipe can be exchanged for up to $12 in dining dollars. The senate doesn't have the power to unilaterally change the meal plan, but ASG is a member of the dining committee, so this bill can trigger negotiations between Dining Services and ASG.
Two senators and two members were chosen by ASG Senate in a several-hour Senate session on Tuesday.
For all on-campus districts, ASG senators have been selected by direct election from their constituents on the Hub. Results were announced Tuesday afternoon, and senators will be sworn in at Tuesday's ASG meeting at 6 p.m. in the Joslin Senate Chamber.
With no competition for their districts, some candidates have been named automatically victorious in their race for ASG Senate, Speaker of the Senate Cole Hankins said. Each on-campus district has two senators.
Vinny Guadagnino, a former reality star best known for his role on MTV's "Jersey Shore," will be the keynote speaker at Miami's second annual mental health forum at 6 p.m. on Sept. 7 in Hall Auditorium. The event is co-hosted by ASG, Student Counseling Services, the Interfraternity Council, the Panhellenic Council, MAP and RHA.
