Quoting Ohio Wesleyan alumnus Branch Rickey, sophomore Lee LeBoeuf began her secretary’s report to the Wesleyan Council on Student Affairs (WCSA) by saying, “It is not the honor you take with you but the heritage you leave behind.”
Despite these words on legacy, the final full senate meeting of the semester focused on things to come.
Junior Jerry Lherisson, president of WCSA, did thank the senators and representatives for their dedication to the council and for “the hard work that resulted in change.” And junior Emma Drongowski, vice president of WCSA, echoed Lherisson’s sentiment.
But Drongowski also mentioned that top members of WCSA are looking to fill a vacancy on the executive committee left by Jess Sanford, a sophomore who will be traveling abroad in the fall. They will begin their search within Sanford’s administrative policy committee but will look elsewhere if necessary.
The academic affairs committee informed senators of plans to host another academic forum next semester. This forum would bring administrators, faculty and students together to discuss OWU’s general education requirements.
Sophomore Jess Choate announced that her residential affairs committee was able to purchase sports equipment for Edwards Gym. Soccer balls, footballs, volleyballs and more will be available to rent in the fall.
Finally, the meeting closed after the allocation of the fall budget was unanimously adopted.
