Aug 22 WEEKLY UPDATE: Elections, Leave of Absence, and Academics.
It’s that time again. That time when we breathe a sigh of relief, and a new team of eager hopefuls gears up for the year to come. Most of the time, your Student Government just toils quietly away in the background on a campaign of improvement, undemanding except for the odd annoying email.
Now, however, you are needed. After faithfully serving the school for the past year, we are calling on the students to engage momentarily with us to select, from your range of volunteers, those you will accept as your representatives for the next year.
Academic Report and Town Hall: The Academic Report has been distributed. We appreciate the positive engagement we’ve received from staff and faculty!
Elections and Town Hall: The new Student Government is being elected. Come see you candidates debate the issues of note at the Town Hall, Monday night, 7:30, TCT. Elections will continue from there.
Alumni usages: Alumni may not use the MPH, but have gym access for a 1-yr trial period.
Gym hours: Extended to 2am for a trial run this semester.
Dining: Is now under Infra instead of DOS. Dining Committee is still under DOS.
Constitution Update: Student Government members are permitted a “Leave of Absence” of up to one month, for any ‘acceptable reason’ as defined in Section 2.1.
Handover documents: Are being prepared to welcome and instruct the next government.
Again, find more detail in the minutes.
All the best,
Yale-NUS Student Council | Director of External Communication
