OAS will be handing out breakfast items, as well informational pamphlets, containing off-campus specific support resources for off-campus students.

From Secretary Amanda Murray, there were updates announced about Capital Improvement. For Capital Improvement, the Senate is given at least $50,000 each year to fund tangible, student-driven projects that impact the Clemson community as a whole. The application will go live on Sept. 15 and close this semester on Dec. 9. Any student can submit a Capital Improvement application on any on-campus projects that they believe will benefit the community.

When discussing New Business, a bill to amend election bylaws was sent back to the finance and procedures committee. The bill was about amending the election bylaws, and a section in the bill proposed that the student body’s campaign can only make the Top 15 once in their time at Clemson, which refers to the cabinet. Next week, it will return for a pro/con debate.
