          Tuesday marked the first Undergraduate Student Government General Assembly meeting for the 2010-11 academic year. President Minh-Tri Nguyen began by welcoming everyone back and illustrated all the hard work done by the executive members that had been on campus over the summer.

          "We just dug into the work," said Nguyen. USG was also a very active part of the Welcome Days activities. Several representatives helped to organize the Activities Fair and Welcome Back Dance possible, as well as a new USG SatCo that occurred this past Saturday. Other initiatives that were highlighted in the welcome address were the new Tinkham Veale University Center, the new Performing Arts Center, and the university's Climate Action Plan.

          Vice president of student life Divya Aggarwal also presented her committee report. As well as restating all of the new projects introduced since the last semester, Aggarawl said that the student life committee would be equally busy this semester. Aggarwal assembled USG's student resource guide to be distributed by USG at the Activities Fair. She also discussed a new safety presentation in development for the freshmen.

          "We were approached by Dr. Kenny and Officer Mark about presenting a program that really highlights how community and community officers really work as part of campus safety," said Aggarwal. In addition, this year's Safety Fair will be held on the Quad instead of inside Thwing Center.

          Kelly Maloney, vice president of information technology made some very crucial announcement. For example, IT services is going to be removing the filer system that many student organizations on campus use to manage their websites. This means that these organizations will have to transfer their sites to other services, but this will not be happening immediately. ITS is also looking into making the network for the residence halls separate from that servicing the rest of campus. This could potentially increase the amount of bandwidth for each user to work with.
