Graduate students were not allowed to attend last Thursday’s Residence and Dining Enterprises (R&DE) Lunar New Year dinner, a decision the Graduate Student Council co-chair called “discriminatory.”
The Graduate Student Council (GSC) on Wednesday night expressed concerns that graduate students would not be able to attend Residential and Dining Enterprises’ (R&DE) Lunar New Year celebration, which will be held in Wilbur Dining Hall on Thursday.
Dining halls no longer offer take-out containers to students looking to take food to-go — and some dining halls now have signs that read: “To-go containers and Ziploc bags are not allowed.”
In its weekly Wednesday meeting, the Graduate Student Council (GSC), followed up on last week’s Mental Health Town Hall and discussed goals to study mental health data, promote pedestrian safety and support transgender and non-binary students.
On Wednesday, the Graduate Student Council (GSC) held a Mental Health Town Hall that addressed graduate student mental health and wellbeing on campus.
The event follows last week’s undergraduate town hall, which similarly brought together administrators and students to discuss mental health concerns and resources.
The council, which has about $180,000 in funds per year according to funding committee member Melanie Malinas, doled out $4,420 during Wednesday’s meeting.
In a unanimous vote, the councillors swore in Latin American history Ph.D candidate Mateo Carrillo to represent the social sciences district. Carrillo was the default replacement for Caleb Smith ’18, who was elected last year but graduated, leaving the seat vacant over the summer.
