Week of Feb. 20

Post  Admin on Sun Feb 21, 2010 12:03 am

Looking forward to the world cup, this is going to be so cool, and I jst know it will ROCK!
I spoke to tony about the Speak out event, I cant wait to help get the word out, I like the idea of it being in two locations on one day, something new is always a good thing to try.
The grants committee meeting was productive, and interesting to say the least. I look forward to next week, I have a feeling we will be looking at very competitive proposals.
I enjoyed My meeting with Mr.Walker this week, Thanks for the updated, and the information you provided me with.

Fajir's First Post

Post  Admin on Sat Feb 13, 2010 4:28 pm

This week I had my first meeting with the cabinet members of the VCU SGA, it was Awesome, and I got to learn about many things including the fact that we must post weekly updates on the SGA forums. I also learned that the new constitution has been passed and new elections will soon be on the way. Also, I learned about the VCU students amazingly awesome efforts to help clean different streets and neighborhoods in Richmond.
I have been trying over the past week to get the word out in regards to the GA VCU RAMS on the hill day; also, I am still exploring my options in regards to learning how I may be of service to the SGA, and VCU. If anyone has ideas, I am more than happy to hear them people. The one thing I know for sure is that there is a limitless amount of potential and loads of energy to be tapped into.
I also have been randomly striking up conversations with students at the library, and in the commons, and in different classes I am taking, I ask people about their opinion in regards to the value of their degree? And about their willingness to be evolved alumni? The responses I have been getting range from positive to negative to non interest!!
I hope you find this post of value, it is my first time around, and any criticism is always welcome Smile

Updates, (contain some older things as well)

Met with Gabe and Faculty Senate Student Affairs committee regarding finalizing a plan for the Add/Drop issue and textbook concerns. Gabe will be presenting to the faculty senate soon. Logistics of a blackboard system to house syllabi to be worked on. Very promising ideas and progress is being made!

Attended Virginia Coalition for Education meeting. Gathering of students regarding budgetary concerns and administrative policies. Students plan on participating in the 'day on the hill' event SGA typically runs, as well as voicing their concerns regarding other campus issues.

Green unity event a huge success, volunteered for several hours. Great response from students, and numerous questionnaires filled out regarding the green fee issue.

Recommend everyone to attend Office of International Education coffee hours, and mingle with our growing international student population. Great way to extend a friendly welcome to exchange students studying here.

This week was able to make it to the Student Life committee meeting, where I brought up concerns raised in the executive cabinet meeting regarding the proposed bus route and the poll question. Questions were answered and question reviewed. Speak out was this past wednesday and quite a success. I volunteered and saw first hand a huge student response so awesome job and much credit to Gonzalo and friends. School Song resolution was reviewed and I dispatched calls for the creation of a joint committee, contacting the respective groups required. Great week so far and I am excited for the upcoming month.

Post  Sanjay I on Fri Oct 16, 2009 6:32 pm

Short update for this week, my apologies, midterms everywhere!

Deputy Director of Student Affairs position is being temporarily worked by Justin Ahdoot, a class of '13 Theatre Major. He is passionate about aiding the SGA and excited for the upcoming year.

Once again, must congratulate the Student Life committee on their work. Excited about the upcoming SGA speakout, and as usual, expecting great success. Portal poll is up regarding the proposed Monroe Park Campus bus route, please vote!

Thanks, Sanjay

Updates

Post  Admin on Fri Oct 16, 2009 3:04 pm

Updates from the past couple weeks,

Met with Faculty Senate regarding Add/Drop issue and Compiled Textbook concerns. Extending Add/Drop time frame is unadvised and not something which will happen, so the proposed options include creating more in depth course descriptions informing students of class responsibilities prior to registration or making accessible old syllabi to give students an estimate of the future semesters coursework. Decision to be deliberated on and discussed later. Student concern regarding compiled books brought to attention of faculty senate. Compiled textbooks were designed with the intent to lower prices for students, but there is very little resale value. Brought to attention the SGA book trading website, and requested faculty to allow SGA representatives to speak during class regarding the web page. Will be discussed further at a later date.

Student life committee off to an awesome start, much credit is deserved by the hardworking members and the tireless Gonzalo. Sat in on the last meeting which dealt with the proposed bus route, tie resolution, and other things. Will be attending tonight and update if necessary. Great work guys!

Since our last meeting, at the end of August, we have pushed the creation of the VCU Worldcup, a large scale sporting event geared toward multicultural exchange and bringing various communities together. We successfully met and begun working with leaders from the Intercultural Festival, and are in planning stages regarding potentially tying this event to the annual program in the spring. Several student organizations have pledged their support, and the groundwork to get this going is being set. Expect more updates soon!
