Te current Student Senate executive staﬀ will pass over responsibilities afer elections in under two weeks, but it doesn’t mean they’re slowing down anytime soon.“It’s not our ﬁrst 100 days that motivate us but our last 100 days,” said Marcus etwiler, student body pres-ident.Platorms are still coming to ruition, such as Student Body Vice President Emma Halling’s initiative to install lockable cellular charging stations in downtown bars.In act, Halling said the installation in at least highly popular bars is slated to begin in April afer the University’s General Counsel reviews plans.Te lockers would be smaller than those in the recreation center but can be accessed by a similar sel-set code with chargers or a variety o devices inside. Hal-ling received approval rom the Student Saety Board to purchase the machines.Halling said it’s import-ant students have access to rape crisis lines and cellular applications like Saerek immediately, especially in the downtown area.“You can give people as many apps as you want, but i their phone is dead, it doesn’t matter,” Halling previously told Te Kansan.Student health was a prior-ity o the Student Senate this year, and the renovations o Watkins Health Center have progressed, said Morgan Said, current outreach director. Carpeting, paint colors and student artwork have already been chosen or the lobby o Watkins. Most o the renovations will occur in the summer.“Tere aren’t many build-ings that you walk in and it’s evident that there was a heavy student hand in the creation o all this,” said Said.Next week’s voting results will decide the platorms or the 2014-2015 school year. Tree coalition platorms are outlined, but new initiatives have been added.
Crimson and True
An initiative released on March 27 encourages the University to license out textbooks and books already in the public domain, said Sara Anees, vice presidential candidate.She said it would cut down the cost and increase the availability o textbooks. Members o Crimson and rue would work with Uni- versity Governance to make texts ree or discounted.“You can’t get every book rom the library,” Anees said. “Tat’s just inconvenient.”
A privately-unded music estival is GrowKU’s most recent initiative. Te plan in-cludes working with a student advisory board to bring a big-name act to Lawrence during Homecoming. Numerous proession-al campus entites would continuebout unding would continue unding conversa-tions i GrowKU is voted into oﬃce, Said said. Said said this event will bring past, current and uture KU ans together.“Tis is so large scale that it goes beyond just one student group,” Said said.
A social justice minor was added under the Beyond platorm last week. Te pro-posed curriculum would oﬀer students another alternative or a rounded-out education, said MacKenzie Oatman, presidential candidate.Mitchell Cota, vice presi-dential candidate, received support rom the Oﬃce o Multicultural Aﬀairs (OMA) afer administration told him they’ve wanted to introduce the minor or a while, said Oatman .“Tere’s a core base o people who are active in the OMA who this would appeal to but at the same time, it’s important or people to have that cross disciplinary study,” Oatman said.
