10/03/2013: CUSC in brief

This CUSC meeting was an exciting one, as many newly elected representatives came to witness how the council is run.

$300 was allocated to ISA for International Journey. $151 was allocated to student Ivy Mbayah to go to the 2013 Youth Summit sponsored by The World Bank Group. $100 was allocated to Clark University Dance Society for a speaker to be shared with other groups for use in the Atwood Blue Room. $700 was allocated to a software engineering group that seeks to make an educational game for freshmen that depicts student life. The group hopes it will eventually be available for free on Androids and that it will be used by Clark and even other universities.

For fall break, there will be free buses to Boston on October 11 at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m., and October 12 at 12 p.m. On October 13, there will be a shuttle every half hour to Shrewsbury from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. On October 14, there will be a bus to the Natick Mall leaving at 2 p.m. and returning at 7 p.m.  

The results of the election were certified, but the council is looking for someone to fill the second off-campus representative position.

The council will be reconciling all club allocations by taking funds from the cumulative surplus. This cost almost $24,000.

The newly elected representatives will be officially sworn in at the beginning of next week’s meeting and then will be accountable to answering constituents’ queries within 48 hours.
