The 40th Legislature is proud of the things they accomplished on behalf of students during 2016-2017.
• Negotiated the installation of a 24-hour ATM (coming Summer 2017), allowing residential students a safe on-campus environment to process financial transactions. The ATM is surcharge-free and did not require any institutional funds. Lastly, the ATM will be located in the library between the study quad and the silent quad.
• Extended late-night food hours/selections to reduce wait time and increase variety.
• Instituted a program: “Recipe from Home” allowing students to choose a new recipe to be added to the meal rotation cycle for the Spring Semester. Based on this program’s success, dining services implemented three additional student recipes.
• Successfully lobbied to restore the 32 bus stop location on campus for students when NFTA removed the bus stop due to bridge construction.
• Fought against stringent newly imposed regulations on USG Organizations
• Advocated against reverse housing priority which led to significant media coverage and an official investigation.
• Mandated a policy for the Sports Arena to respond within two business days whenever they receive an event request from a USG organization.
