What Do YOU Want Wednesday
The purpose of What Do YOU Want Wednesday is to allow Mason students and Student Government to interact and facilitate conversations regarding desired changes or questions about campus issues to improve the Mason experience. The theme for this month’s event was Student Safety and we were able to speak with students about the pepper spray policy on campus. Volunteers shared information about the current policy and gathered feedback from over 100 students. This feedback will be shared with the Student Conduct office as well as Housing and Residence Life.

Recent Legislation: Resolutions 26 and 28, and Bill 24
At this week’s Senate meeting we’ll discuss Resolution #26: A Resolution to Establish a Steering Committee and Cultivate a Fair Trade Environment On Campus, Resolution #28: A Resolution to Support Additional Tailgates for Home Basketball Games, and Bill #24: A Bill to Allocate Funds for Spring DeStress Fest 2016. To read more about these resolutions and bills, check out our legislation log, here: http://sg.gmu.edu/legislation-log-3/
