An opinion piece recently published in TechNews outlined somebody’s perspective on the recently introduced “Legislative Session” to Senate meetings, and I felt it necessary to publicly answer some of their critiques and concerns. Know when I speak, I speak as a representative of the Student Body, concerned solely with the needs of Illinois Tech students.

It seemed only logical for him to combine these two pursuits into one: thus, he created his current show on the station - “BLANK Time” Sundays from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m.

On the evening of Wednesday, October 3, the Illinois Tech Student Government Association (SGA) held its second round of committee meetings. At these meetings, the organization breaks into its various committees (Academic Affairs, Communications, Events, and Student Life) to discuss its ongoing projects. After gathering all of the senators and executive board members in the MTCC Brown Room (and possibly breaking the building’s fire code in the process) for a series of quick announcements, SGA then broke into each of its respective committees. On this particular occasion, TechNews attended the Student Life meeting, led by Vice President of Student Life Lin Abu-Amara.
