Student Sen. Zarrilli looks into adjusting Latin honors criteria by major

Student Sen. Elizabeth Zarrilli, chair of the academic affairs committee, suggested adjusting the University’s Latin honors criteria to vary by program. Currently, students graduate cum laude with a GPA of at least 3.70, magna cum laude with a GPA of at least 3.85 and summa cum laude with a GPA of at least 3.95. Student Sen. Zarrilli is hoping “to take into account academic rigor,” which can differ between majors by increasing or decreasing the GPA requirements. The last time the University adjusted its Latin honors criteria was in 2012.

Overcrowding on CATbus at Crawford is “miserable,” says Student Sen. Shin

Student Sen. Minhyun Shin expressed his discontent with the CATbus Red route, and shared that the University’s Parking and Transportation Services is aware and looking into adding an additional route. The route would target Publix, Crawford and GrandMarc. The city of Clemson is planning on hosting a public forum to allow the community to share ideas about future routes.

Twenty-two student senators recommend extending Schilletter Dining Hall’s hours on weekends and game days

A large group of student senators supported SRE No. 12, which proposes that Schilletter’s weekend hours expand to 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. to match McAlister and that it maintains a flexible schedule for home football games. McAlister Dining Hall is the only dining hall open during breakfast hours on weekends and home football games. 5,164 students live on east campus, including Douthit, Bryan Mall, Calhoun Courts and Lightsey Bridge, which make up 51.4% of on-campus residents. If passed, the recommendation is non-binding for the University and expresses the Student Senate’s support.

Twenty-four-hour access to academic buildings a priority in proposed recommendation

Student Sen. Harrison Langpaul and three other student senators recommended that the University provide students with 24-hour access to academic buildings to study in. Few buildings on-campus are available to study in after 10 p.m. unless a student has special access to a building like the Honors College, said Student Sen. Langpaul. He also noted that students remain in buildings after closing hours right now and let in students without scanning who are unable to enter otherwise. The recommendation, SRE No. 11, will be put to a vote next Monday and, if passed, express the Student Senate’s support.
