Sept 28 WEEKLY UPDATE:
Compassion, Community and Care.
This week has been an emotionally challenging and tumultuous one for our college community. As such, the Student Government would like to reach out and let everyone know that the health of our community – both emotional and physical – is imperative. Please do not hesitate to reach out to your friends, DFs or members of the government as unity must eclipse all other priorities for the time being.
Alex Meyer has kindly put together a sheet of the resources you have available, so please reach out to any of them if you need to.
The Student Government will be putting out a statement in the coming weeks. For now, here are some updates.
Due to Week 7 absences, most of the agenda was postponed until enough people are on campus for quorum. However, we did appoint Timo and Sara as the graduation committee liaisons. The aircon policy was also reviewed. Although the system is under NUS administration and hence is difficult to change, we will continue the conversation around ensuring it works 24/7 in the common lounges. Please see the minutes for more information. Other conversation centered around publicity and design.
Student Life further discussed the Mascot Committee and planned the setup of a focus group. This will be publicized at a later date.
Once again, our thoughts and sympathies go out to everyone. Now is a time to draw together and support one another, so do not hesitate to reach out. Food and safe spaces will continue to be provided in the Common Lounges and College Offices. Remember that your professional and peer counsellors are also available at the Wellness Center and in Cafe Agora.
All the best,
Director of External Communication
