Weekly Briefing: Students continue to voice their opinions
October has arrived but the chill of Halloween is still missing. Keep your sweaters, leggings and boots in the closet, Pacers. It seems like the Summer weather is in it for the long haul.
This week, students held a debate on the USCA Student Life Facebook page about whether the university should keep the Critical Inquiry (CI) class on the roster. Our News Editor then created a poll about the matter, which sparked more discussion from students and even a TA for the CI program.
A new student organization, Unique Student Council Association, has been formed with the purpose of advocating for students with both visible and invisible disabilities. The association’s leader, Faith Clemons, spoke with our News Editor about why she started the group.
Sports Editor Michael Kuras covered both the women’s soccer team game, which was an unfortunate loss, and the women’s volleyball game, which was an unsurprising win. The volleyball team has had an incredible season so far, with Saturday’s game bringing their current record to 12-0.
Finally, the Diversity Initiatives office is hosting several events in celebration of Latinx heritage month, which falls between Sept. 15 and Oct. 15. Student Coordinator, Amethyst Marroquin, said that the month’s final event is a Pachanga and that it will “will serve as the grand finale!”
That’s it for this week, Pacers. See you next time.
