COMMUTER NEWS

COMMUTER STUDENT UNION
Plans for a new club designed specifically around the needs of commuters are in the works! Please respond if you are interested in being part of this exciting process of implementing SPU's very own Commuter Student Union. This club would be comprised of commuter students who are interested in representing the voice of commuters to the campus and planning events that would be more appealing to SPU's non-residential types. Contact one of your commuter senators today if this sounds appealing. The club is looking for both members and officers. [link]

COMMUNITY NEWS

MARTIAL SPORTS PASSES
ASSP has begun a partnership with Martial Sports to offer subsidized passes for Kickboxing, Pilates, Yoga, Taekwondo, Hip Hop Dance classes and many other programs. The best part? It's really cheap. Students can attend 5 classes of their choice for only $15. Passes are available for purchase in the ASSP office. For more information, contact Jeff Pickering, ASSP Public Relations Manager, 281-2497 or assp-prm@spu.edu.


BOARD OF STUDENT MEDIA
Applications are now available in the ASSP Office for Board of Student Media student representative and student chair positions. The Board of Student Media serves as publisher/broadcaster of all student media organizations (Falcon, Cascade, KSPU, and Second Essence) and is responsible for selecting top student officers and monitoring media organizations policies and budgets. If you are interested or would like more information, please contact James Pedrick at 206-281-2499 or assp-execvp@spu.edu. Applications are due November 24 in the ASSP Office.


COLLEGIUMS
Bri Clark, ASSP President, and Kathleen Braden, Dean of Students, presented the idea of the Collegium program to the ASSP Senate on Monday evening. The Collegium program currently exists at Seattle University and is a service that they provide to their commuter students. It is a space on campus for students to hang out between classes, eat lunch, study for their next class, or catch up on sleep before a big test. It is not just a study lounge: It is well-thought out space that is designed to provide a sense of community for students who are not members of the residence hall community. Essentially, it is a home away from home. Seattle Pacific University's undergraduate student population is comprised of nearly 40% commuter students. While many of these students live within four miles of the SPU campus, there exists a need for increased resources for commuters on campus. ASSP is forming a student advisory board to look at the Collegium program and see if it is something that would benefit the students at SPU. If you are a commuter who is interested in serving on the advisory board, or if you would like more information about the Collegium program, please contact ASSP President Bri Clark, 206-281-2494 or assp-president@spu.edu
