Senate News

  1. ASPC Budget Committee presented its recommendations for the 2015-2016 ASPC Budget to ASPC Senate yesterday. After some discussion and a few concerns, the budget was ultimately passed by a unanimous 8-0 vote. Check out next year’s budget here!

    The reasoning behind a few of the changes in next year’s budget:

    • PEC is receiving less money than in previous years as a result of budget committee restructuring—next year, the ASPC and PEC budget committees will be folded into a single ASPC Budget Committee. This means the same amount of money available for events as before, but now with a single budget committee to go to with funding requests for organizations and events!

    • TSL currently receives the vast majority of its funding from ASPC despite being a 5C newspaper. Budget Committee recommended slightly reducing their funding and encouraging them to seek additional funding from the other colleges.

    • The Draper Center, which started as an ASPC initiative but is increasingly a College program, is only receiving less money from ASPC because the College is increasingly funding it.

    • Income from vending machines is declining steeply—from \$10,000 for the 2013-2014 school year to an expected income of \$5,000 for the 2015-2016 school year. Vending machine income goes entirely toward the ASPC alcohol fund, so less money from vending machines could mean less money for the alcohol fund if the trend continues. Senators noted that revenue from the vending machines in the new dorms (Sontag and Pomona) goes to RHS, while all other vending machine income goes to the alcohol fund.

  2. STARTING NOW: The 2015 ASPC Course Review and Housing Review Raffles!

    Course registration and room draw are right around the corner, and ASPC has your back - you can check out our course reviews database and our housing reviews database to find out what past students have thought about their favorite courses or their worst dorms.

    We want to make these resources even better. For a limited time only, posting a new course review or housing review will automatically enter your name into a raffle for a chance to win two fabulous prizes. Each submitted review counts as a raffle entry, so the MORE reviews you submit, the HIGHER chance you have to win! Any reviews since the last raffle at the end of the Spring 2014 semester count as eligible entries. (Remember, only review courses you’ve taken, and rooms you've lived in.)

    Deadlines:

    • 11:59pm on Monday, April 20 for course reviews
    • 6:00pm on Friday, April 24 for housing reviews

    Prizes:

    • For the course reviews raffle, enter for a chance to win a new pair of Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Professional Studio Monitor Headphones - perfect for silencing the roar of college life during finals week.

    View the ASPC website on desktop or mobile

    • For the housing reviews raffle, enter for a chance to win a new Kindle Fire HD 7 (16 GB) - great for reading books or using thousands of apps.
