This week’s student assembly covered a spring weekend wrap-up, and a new campus organization.

Amanda Guthorn, director of Campus Safety, came to speak about how spring weekend went.

“Improvement comes in little steps,” Guthorn said.

Jessica French, student government member, said she thought the weekend ran smoothly and the parties were contained.

French said that the Keene Police Department was friendly, nice, and polite which lead to students cooperating with them.

“I saw the presence of campus safety and police but they weren’t aggressive,” said Kenneth Hadley, student government member.

Ryan Mahan, senior, spoke on behalf of a new campus organization in the works.

The organization will be a chapter of Wine to Water, a non-profit that educates about the water crisis and lack of sanitary water.

A constitution has been drafted and the move to approve the organization was passed.

The women’s rugby team requested a transfer of $1500 from their travel fund to their supply fund in order to buy warm up jackets and other supplies. The transfer was approved.

Keene Cannabis Coalition was in attendance for the second week. President Scott Dyer spoke on behalf of the organization, requesting $400 for transportation to Boston for an upcoming legalization march.

Due to a formality, student government instructed a representative of KCC to attend a finance meeting before they can be allotted any money.
