In this last segment of PUSH, Wilson College Government Association will give a summary of what has occurred on campus and what will occur in the future.

New clubs

WCGA Executive Board received a constitution from students to form the Wilson College Vaulting Club and the Wilson College Music Club. Motion was made to pass the constitution for both groups and grant the groups club status and the ability to apply for apportionments from WCGA. Motion was passed and the clubs will receive $250.00 each as a start-up amount from WCGA. Congratulations to both!

Student of the month

WCGA also announced Lauren Kershner as the April Student of the Month for her willingness to help her fellow students by being an informed member of the community. If you see Lauren, please congratulate her on receiving this award and honor.

Pizza Talk

On April 17, WCGA held their final Pizza Talk of the semester which focused on discussions concerning a new tradition now that Senior Week has become one weekend and all students can stay until after Commencement. Some thoughts included Sister Sit Down or a Traditions Boot Camp. The sit down would be a place where sister classes can share knowledge about the traditions specific to whether they are an Even or an Odd. This new tradition would allow the torch to be passed on to the underclassmen to keep the traditions alive and to make the farewell for seniors to be grander.

Honor Principle Day

Also held on April 17 was the 2nd Annual Honor Principle Day where students, faculty and staff showed their support of the Honor Principle. All participated by wearing their Wilson blue, doing the honor principle quiz, or sending daisy grams to those who have been seen doing something honorable. Participants were entered into the drawing for $20.00 gift cards of their choosing. Students that won a $20.00 gift card were Kayla Talik, Kimberly Leitma, Lindsey Sutton, Courtney Lieb, Georgia Kalmoutis, and Laura Wilson. Faculty and Staff were entered into the drawing for their lunch to be paid for them on Tuesday April 23, 2013 courtesy of the Wilson College Government Association 2012-2013 Executive Board. The winners included Jean Hoover, Carolyn Perkins, Bob Dickson, Doug Crawford, Lisa Woolley, and Ed Wells.

Executive Board elections

Elections for the 2013-2014 Executive Board were a great success and the new officers are President Morgan “Momo” Lindsay, Vice President Caileigh Oliver, Treasurer Amanda Clever, Secretary Nicole Melanson, Chief Justice Sonja Hess, Constitution and By-Laws Chair Brookelyn Steinbach, and Academic Affairs Chair Emma Echanis. Parliamentarian will be decided upon by the newly elected board after installation. Next year's officer team will begin meeting with current officers to prepare them for next year and tag along with the current board to meetings such as the upcoming Board of Trustees meetings occurring the weekend of May 17. The newly elected board was installed into their respective positions at the last WCGA meeting of the semester.

Food for Finals

The Food for Finals schedule is finalized and this whole event will be held in the Jensen Dining Hall. RAs will be providing ice cream sundaes on Sunday evening, Alumnae/i Relations and the Alumnae Association will be offering bagels and spreads on Monday evening, on Tuesday a soft pretzel bar provided by Dining Hall, Waffle Wednesday provided by WCGA, and CAB will be providing Pizza on Thursday. This week occurs the week of May 12 during finals. Hope everyone enjoys!
