Group extends GRC reforms

first_imgStudent Senate discussed the complete overhaul planned for the College Hookups, Alcohol and Sexual Assault education program, known as College HAS Issues, at Wednesday’s meeting. Student body vice president Katie Rose said the Gender Relations Center (GRC) wanted to foster a spirit of care on campus with the reformation of the program. “The GRC is basically planning to change everything about it,” Rose said. “They want to focus on community safety within the dorms, being our brother’s or sister’s keeper. The overall goal is to illustrate a positive, healthy social life, define sexual misconduct, identify risky behavior and make known the resources that are available.” Class of 2014 president Lizzie Helping said educating students about Indiana state laws in College HAS Issues would help to create a safer environment at Notre Dame. “With regards to the state laws about alcohol, is there any way we could give the freshmen a packet with the rules?” Helping said. “It’s one thing to hear about them, but it’s another to actually remember them.” Rose said she shared this concern because many students coming from other states are unaware of Indiana state laws pertaining to alcohol. “The state laws and rules about alcohol are not explicitly talked about [in the program],” Rose said. “A portion of the content of College HAS Issues is actually federally mandated, but we’re making sure to get that and additional state information to students without it being so stigmatized.” Pangborn Hall senator Emily Pollard said the GRC plans to make a short video about Indiana state laws to address the issue. Pollard is currently working with the center to implement changes to College HAS Issues. Looking ahead to the upcoming turnover, student union treasurer Alexa Shaw announced her search for a successor. “We are looking for a new treasurer, so I encourage all of you and your friends to apply,” Shaw said. “It is more skewed towards finance and accounting majors, but we’re opening it up to all majors.” Student body president Brett Rocheleau encouraged the Ssenate to recruit candidates for the position. “This is a great opportunity, especially for business majors, to run a budget of about $850,000,” Rocheleau said. “This year is unique because you could become the student union treasurer right away without having to be an assistant treasurer first.” Rocheleau also reported a positive meeting with the Community/Campus Advisory Coalition (CCAC) on Jan. 29. “[Tuesday] I went to the CCAC meeting to talk to police forces and neighborhoods,” Rocheleau said. “Everything is going good, everyone’s happy.” Department of community relations director Kelsey Eckenrode asked senators to encourage their neighbors to attend CommUniversity Day, which is set for Saturday, April 6. “It’s a day-long event, and we’re trying to get well over 1,000 participants,” Eckenrode said. “Previous years have had from 700-1,000 participants in the past, so it shouldn’t be too difficult if you spread the word in your dorms.” Contact Maddie Daly at [email protected]last_img read more

Football Closes Home Slate Saturday

first_img Live Audio Live Video DES MOINES, Iowa – The Drake University football team hosts Pioneer Football League foe Marist at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, for the final home game of the season. Prior to the game there will be a program to honor the team’s seniors for their accomplishments at Drake.Drake (5-3, 4-2 PFL) slipped out of the top two spots in the PFL last week with a 27-10 loss to first-place San Diego. The Toreros bottled up Drake’s typically potent offense and the Bulldogs’ lone touchdown was a Jeran Proctor interception return early in the second quarter. The pick-6 was the third this season for Drake vaunted defense that still ranks in the top 15 nationally in multiple categories.Marist (5-4, 5-1 PFL) is still in the hunt for the Pioneer League title, and they will likely need to win their final two games of the season to take home the regular season championship, including the season finale against San Diego. The Red Foxes have a balanced offense, rushing for 123.7 yards per game, and passing for 232.0 yards per game. They have been on a tear offensively the past three games, averaging 43.7 points per game in that stretch.Drake leads the all-time series 6-0, including 3-0 at home. The last time the two teams met, the result was a 19-14 Bulldogs win in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. where kicker Danny Donley went 4-of-4 on field goals to hold the lead against Marist’s late push.After Saturday’s game, Drake will head to Morehead, Ky. to close out the season against Morehead State at 12 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17.
