Task force member opens up questions in CCSC meeting
The show went on in the Satow Room on Monday night even though some had their minds on tonight’s Oscars. Learned Foote opened the meeting up with a vote on the council’s picks for Best Picture. Most of the council voted for Inception but Learned used his executive power to make CCSC’s selection Black Swan. Alas, The King’s Speech won.
For the CCSC meeting tonight:
- Alex Frouman, CC ’12 and a University senator, took questions on the Senate’s Task Force on Military engagement, on which he serves. When asked when the senate would vote on whether or not to invite the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps back to campus, fellow senator Kenny Durell said, “I can’t imagine the senate ever voting on something [pause] that comes before them immediately.” Laughter followed.
- Senior class president Sean Udell asked Frouman if he’s found the task force to be impartial, echoing concerns from critics that the task force has a pro-ROTC bent. “I’m not sure impartiality is an issue since we don’t have decision-making power,” Frouman answered, explaining that their role is merely to present information to the full senate. The senate is expected to vote in April.
- Alex Jasliuk, sophomore class president, proposed moving Glass House Rocks to the fall semester, to better coordinate planning. He suggested that the event could have a haunted house theme for Halloween. The council voted to table a vote until later in the semester.
- Elizabeth Kipp-Giusti presented a proposal from GreenBorough, EcoReps, and Food Sustainability Project to house a food composter in Schapiro’s patio. The project has informally been dubbed Schapatio. The internalized compost machine is called The Rocket, which, as Kipp-Giusti says, “sounds like a sex toy or something.” Her words, not mine.
