Student senators looks to improve campus relationships

As the semester comes to a close, the student senators discussed new ways to reach out to the student body next semester while enhancing City College’s public image.

One of the ideas the Associated Student Government members talked about was the possibility of helping out in Santa Barbara at least once a month.

“These are mostly community-targeted,” said President Isaac Eaves. “We can volunteer and also build a relationship with the community.”

The idea is to have senators and students collaborate and pick up trash in the Mesa neighborhoods. This would be an attempt to clean up any debris leftover from student parties.

“This is huge,” said Public Relations Officer Isabelle Doerschlag. “It’s a great way to work alongside the community.”

It was suggested that clubs held on campus can join the senators to have a larger impact.

“These are just some ways to get them to be more active around the community,” said Student Trustee Tyler Gibson.

The senators also plan on being out on campus more often to listen to students concerns. They also mentioned plans to table on a regular basis, where they would receive students input about important issues.

“Two people will table at least once a week,”  Eaves said.

However, no official plans have been made.

This was the senators last scheduled meeting of the semester, and the next will be held when spring semester begins on Tuesday, Jan. 19.
