UPUA Confirms New At-Large Representatives Bannerman, Santos

The University Park Undergraduate Association met Wednesday night in the HUB to confirm two new at-large representatives and pass a bill to fund student resume printing for spring career days.

President Katie Jordan discussed last weekend’s ABTS conference in her report, explaining UPUA representatives weren’t able to attend because of the weather. She also discussed the upcoming Student Fee Board meetings, which are held Fridays at 8 a.m. in 102 HUB and open to the public. This week, the board is scheduled to hear budget presentations from UPAC, Homecoming, SPA, and Student Orientation and Transition Programs.

In new business, the assembly confirmed two new at-large representatives in Beryl Bannerman and Diego Santos. Speaker Brent Rice said the Steering Committee received 19 applications for the two open positions, which were vacated by former representatives Isaac Will and Anthony Stem. If you know anything about UPUA confirming representatives in the middle of the assembly’s term, this is an incredible turnout and, as Rice said, speaks to the quality of the two candidates brought forward by Steering. Both Bannerman and Santos passed through Steering 4-0-0 and were confirmed unanimously by the assembly.

The only legislation of the week, Bill 13-12, commits UPUA to spending up to $600 for students to print up to 4,000 resumes (but only 10 each) at Copy Central leading up to the Spring Career Fair on Tuesday, February 6. UPUA has also partnered with the Engineering Undergraduate Council, which will match the contribution with up to $600 of its own leading up to the Engineering Career Fair on Wednesday, January 24. Students can begin printing resumes Monday, January 22 until the Spring Career Fair or until funds are exhausted.
