UPUA Gears Up For CCSG Council, Homecoming

The University Park Undergraduate Association’s meeting this week was relatively uneventful. No legislation was passed and no votes were held, as many projects are still in progress or in the planning stages.

President of the Council of Commonwealth Student Governments Mohamed Raouda appeared during the Open Student Forum portion of the meeting and encouraged UPUA members to attend this weekend’s CCSG meeting. Raouda said that the Assembly has “so far shown amazing support to the Commonwealth.”

Last year revealed tension between the two student government bodies, and a strong UPUA presence would serve as a good gesture of solidarity and help to improve the relationship between the two, a goal that UPUA expressed itself at the beginning of this year. President Christian Ragland announced that he would attend the meeting on behalf of UPUA.

Also in his address, Ragland briefed the Assembly about his recent projects. He said he had attended a meeting of the University Budget Committee and another about the upcoming spring concert. He anticipated that he should have legislation on the latter by next week’s meeting. Vice President Colleen Smith attended the Student Activity Fees Board meeting as well as the aforementioned budget meeting.

Other notable details of the evening:

  • A special presentation unveiling a spanking-new UPUA website.
  • The State College Borough Council is drafting a resolution regarding a student seat on the Council and continues to work with UPUA to that end.
  • Assembly members will be spread out, representing UPUA at many Homecoming activities.
  • Plans continue to have students appointed to the Facilities and IT boards.
  • Governmental Affairs distributed approximately 4,500 registration forms and flyers to mailboxes.

The evening concluded with a universal invitation to tomorrow’s Campus Night Out event, sponsored by the Student Life & Diversity Committee.
