Senate talks new campus center, ex-officio member

In the eighth meeting of the 20th Undergraduate Senate, Director of Student Unions and Operations Jeanette Smith-Laws spoke about a proposal to construct a new campus center.

Senator Matthew Wigler ’19 also proposed a bill to make Tim Vrakas ’21 an ex-officio Senator, a member who has the privileges of a Senator but cannot vote. Vrakas lost the 15th Senate seat to Wigler in the 2018 Senate elections after invocation of the upperclass district, but has since remained a regular attendee at Senate meetings.
