The first student assembly of the 2021-2022 academic year kicked off with advisor Jen Ferrell asking everyone to introduce themselves. Ferrellstated she was excited to start the year with everyone, working with them and maybe even working with them in ways they haven’t worked before.

Ferrell then told the assembly that she wanted to make sure the assembly members were comfortable, considering the new Class of 2025 representatives and even guests came to visit the assembly. Ferrell said that sometimes people will even just come in and ask for suggestions. Ferrell advised the assembly to not hesitate to share their opions and wanted them to be comfortable doing so.

Student body president Caitlin McCracken took it from there, changing class meetings from weekly to monthly meetings. She said this was to emphasize communication within class officers. She also asked the assembly to start thinking about committees and office hours.

Treasurer James Ronning said there would be more to report next week.

Moving to class reports, the class of 2022 will be having a food festival on September 9. The festival will begin at 6 p.m. for seniors, and will open up to everyone at 6:30 p.m.

The class of 2023 shared that they have not met yet, but they will be tabling at the Student Involvement Fair on Friday, September 10.

The class of 2024 will be holding an event with late-night sizzlers. The date and time of the event were not clear in the meeting.

McCracken told the assembly to mark out the October 29 for Pumpkin Palooza, an event held during Halloween weekend to discourage partying and to keep students on campus.

The other date is April 29, in which Spring Carnival will be held.

The meeting concluded with McCracken sharing that Election Day for class officers will be on September 29. Petitions will be made available on September 20 and they will be due by September 26.
