The Associated Student Government will hold their annual safety walk following the next senate meeting on Sept. 19.
“I just wanted to put on your radar about the campus safety walk that’s gonna be on Sept. 19 following the senate meeting,” said Paul Frost, ASG president and senior accounting major, “That’s where we will walk around campus and identify areas that maybe aren’t safe for the students or whatever it may be.”
Students are welcome to attend the walk.
“We’ve invited administrators to attend, and then senators go,” Frost said. “There will actually be Hornet announcements being released just to get student involvement...It’s a great way to get involved and have your voice heard about the safety of our campus.”
Senate resolution 20002, a resolution opposing the Cengage and McGraw-Hill textbook merger, was passed favorably.
“There’s a lot of fear with the merger of Cengage and McGraw-Hill,” Frost said. “The textbook market would become too small, raising textbook prices even higher. Something that the students advisory committee within Kansas Board of Regents has done in the past years is they submitted a survey that students are already paying significant amounts in textbook pricing.”
This resolution passed 22 in favor, 0 opposed and 0 abstentions.
“This is just one of our ways of reaching out to say ‘This shouldn’t happen,’” Frost said.
The next ASG meeting will be at 5:15 p.m. on Sept. 19 in the senate chambers on the third floor of the Memorial Union, according to emporia.com.
