This past Thursday, United Student Government (USG) welcomed Christopher Rodgers, dean of student life, to come speak at its meeting. Rodgers spoke about his the relationship between the administration and student government. He said the administration helps student government to achieve their goals, and an important part of their relationship is student government asking difficult questions with the administration participating in those discussions.

He ended his talk by discussing some of the issues the administration has recently looked at. He relayed that they are working on plans for a new McGinley Center, had a meeting of the USG Sexual Misconduct Committee and have recently met with various cultural clubs. They are also looking into trying to make repairs to the student lounge in McGinley. He concluded by praising the Residential Life staff for how well they have been helping students after the death of Nicholas Booker.

This was the first meeting that included a delegate from the Fordham Veterans Association (FVA). President of the FVA, Wesley Wilson, PCS, was present at the meeting. He said that FVA’s numbers have increased a lot this year. He urged traditional students and veterans to use each other as resources and learn from each other.

Assistant Director of Career Services and Technology Kasey Fausak also spoke to the senate about important features on Handshake. She gave tips for refining job searches and demonstrated features such as the ‘reviews’ tab and resource library. She said everyone should make an appointment with career services to check in and go over anything they want to.

Judy Rothschild, assistant director of student technology at Fordham Information Technology (IT) services also spoke to the senate. She said IT is working on their printer program to put wireless printers in residential buildings. She said they have scouted the locations, ordered equipment and provided information about where to put in new lines, but the process is still going to take a while. Rothschild also said it is important for the students and IT to keep communication open.

USG chose St. Jude Up Till Dawn as its club of the month at last week’s meeting. This week, the senate presented the club with the award. The members of the club said they appreciate the recognition, especially during pediatric awareness month.
