This weeks Associated Student Body Clubs and Events Board and Student Senate meetings ran in tandem on the morning of Tuesday, Oct. 28 as preparations for Thursday’s Club Day wrapped up.
The theme of the Club Day is “Geeks and Goths.” It is part of an anti-bullying campaign being hosted by CAEB to promote student unity.
CAEB will be selling t-shirts at the event stamped with anti-bullying slogans. The t-shirts cost five dollars each and the proceeds will go to charity next month.
The Student Senate meeting opened with Tamara Dunning, who is acting as ASB Student Senate President, announcing that the Senate will be participating in the Club Day.
Officer Sam Escibo made an announcement during the public comment section that American River College will be the first community college in the district to host “The DUI Court in Schools Program.”
“It is set to happen on Friday, Nov. 7 in the community rooms,” said Officer Escibo. “There will be a real judge and it will be like a real courtroom if you are interested.”
The day before that, Thursday, Nov. 6, the Student Senate will be meeting in the Student Center adjacent to the Hub in order to increase their visibility to the students.
CAEB Director of Activities LeslieAnn Dameron said that there will be orientations in accordance with the new “Yes means Yes” law signed by Gov. Brown.
The law will fund college campuses across the state to educate and promote safer activity at school.
“There will be orientations that will train students in appropriate language, and also, will define what is conscious and voluntary agreement in a sexual act,” said Dameron.
Student Senate is also in the beginning stages of planning next year’s March in March, an annual student advocacy event to be held at the capitol in March 2015.
Preparation includes a vote to agree on a budget that will accommodate student representation for ARC. Students are encouraged to come and represent their schools at the event this March.
