On Friday, September 4, the New College Student Alliance (NCSA) held their Early Fall Elections led by Supervisor of Elections Sabrina Finn. Ethan Kennedy was election as First Year Student Allocations Committee (SAC) Representative for the entire academic year with 47 votes, followed by Kayla Kisseadoo with 41 votes, who will serve as the other First Year SAC Representative until December 2015. Third year Orion Morton was elected as the Landscape Representative, who will serve on the Council of Green Affairs and second year Donni Aldrich was elected Residential Life Representative, who will serve on the Council of Student Life.
The SAC also elected new leadership positions. Second year Racha Masara is chairperson and second year Becca Caccavo is secretary.
Thesis student Kamron Scruggs has been appointed as the new Recording Studio/Band Room Technical Assistant (TA).
Thesis student and Darkroom TA Tricia Johnson has announced that the space will now be open. Constant hours are not decided on yet; however, Johnson’s plan is to open for two hours one week night and for an hour on the weekend.
Lastly, the composting program is not operational due to issues with the compost bike. “As soon as the bike is fixed, bins will be distributed and the program will resume as normal,” third year and Compost TA Olivia Mealor said. “I’ll be doing brief informal information sessions, so that everyone who wants to compost can learn how to do it properly. I am also planning on running the composting tutorial during the second mod [module] of this semester, and I’ll send out more information closer to the start date.” Mealor adds that anyone can contact with questions or if they’re interested in joining the composting program.
