On Wednesday, Sept. 28, four new members were sworn in to the Undergraduate Student Governmentat at the general meeting. 

Jake Miller and Rebekah Hoehne were sworn in as First Year Representatives. There will be one more First Year Representative, Konraad Vandyke, sworn in on Oct. 12.

 

Residential Representatives Andrew Brenner and Billy Buchalski were also sworn in last Wednesday.

 

There are still five open positions remaining for students who would like to get involved in USG: College of Forestry Representative, College of Sciences and Arts Representative, two Third Year Representatives, and one Second Year Representative. 

 

Students that are interested in joining USG should contact the President, Cheyenne Scott, at [email protected]. There are more positions available relating to student government for individuals that want a different role. Isobel Bowker, the current USG Secretary, mentioned that the  Inter-Residence Housing Council was understaffed. 

 

IRHC helps support the hall governments found throughout Tech’s three dormitories; they work closely with Residence Education, Housing Services and Student Affairs on issues which impact the living environment of the residence halls. Unfortunately they do not have the resources to report to the USG, Isobel Bowker said. Students interested in representing their hall, or other residence hall affairs, should contact [email protected]

It is stated that IRHC “reports” to the USG. To clarify, the IRHC and USG are of equal standing, and one does not report to the other.
