Congress Weekly- October 6th

Written by Ousmane A.  Diagne

Lend me your ears, MSU!

I am sad to be the bearer of bad news, but last Friday was our beloved Kristen Whitelaw’s last day.  She will be missed by us all but has said that she will try to pass by the school occasionally. The Cultural Fashion Day initiative brought forward in previous meetings will be moved further into the semester due to unforeseen technological issues; it seems it will be pushed into November. There may be a Polaroid Booth where students will be able to take pictures in their appropriate cultural clothing for about 2$ to 3$. Of course, there will be a prize for the winners: an always-appealing gift card.


Next, regarding the party organized by the MSU’s Social Activity Committee, multiple venues are currently being considered. There will perhaps be a bracelet system to recognize the legally adult students from the underage ones (there may be an open bar for a few hours). A DJ is also in the process of being selected for this party (as well as one for the end of the year party) – it could even be a student! Also, the final members for the Sexual Violence Committee will be Linda Zhu, Coordinator of Social Justice, and Michael di Giorgio, Coordinator of Student Advocacy.


In light of the recent suicide of one of our fellow student, Marianopolis College wishes to remind its students of the services are their disposal to cope with such grief, including the school counselors. The school is also considering providing more discreet services to students in need. We, at The Marianopolis World Review would like to extend our most sincere condolences to the family of the victim and their friends.


Furthermore, there will be no second ping pong table due to logistical issues. Yi Sen Wang, Coordinator of Communications, and his Communications and Yearbook Committee wish to begin on the Yearbook as soon as possible and for this, they require a software which they will be purchasing soon. The money for such a purchase usually stems from the Student Services instead of the Congress Budget. They will be utilizing an independent software and then contact a yearbook company to print them.
