In an effort to address the demands of a growing undergraduate population, Undergraduate Advising and Research hired four new academic directors this past spring.
The ASSU’s Community Action Board (CAB) recently launched a grants initiative to fund programming that promotes more extensive collaboration between diverse groups on campus.
The ASSU Undergraduate Senate unanimously approved the Alternative Review Process (ARP)–a revised judicial procedure for cases involving sexual assault, relationship violence, sexual harassment and stalking–at its Feb. 5 meeting.

Beginning in the 2009-10 school year, Wilbur and Stern (with the exception of the theme houses Okada and Casa Zapata) switched entirely to freshman housing. According to conventional wisdom and survey data, all-frosh houses better promote community and rapport with dorm mates than four-class houses do. Yet, some have argued that four-class dorms provide their own benefits; benefits which disappear when the majority of freshmen are secluded in a bubble within the bubble. While advocates for four-class dorms are right to cite advantages for academic advising, they are flat wrong when it comes to improving alcohol safety.

Several dorms on campus have experienced flooding, and campus maintenance crews have been working to drain water and keep areas dry.
