Furthermore, the Coordinator of Student Advocacy, Michael Di Giorgio, is dealing with a psychological harassment case at the moment in which a student who accused a teacher of psychological harassment had to face that same teacher during the harassment procedures.  Our Coordinator doing his best to remedy this absurd and potentially mentally-straining situation that this student is faced with.  of the issue at hand. As the babyfoot tables have been outlawed, requests for a new ping pong table have been made. The proposition is being considered and, as of yet, there have been no objections made by Congress or Student Services.  Kristen Whitelaw of Student Services has proposed an activity to do in the coming weeks: Axe Throwing! Finally, David Cao, Coordinator of External Affairs, after confirmation from both the Marianopolis World Review and the Papercut on their cooperation, will now be contacting different restaurants around the school in an attempt to get coupons for the students, as he promised he would do in his mandate.
