The student associated college’s came together this fall with the Clubs and Events Board after working separately for two years with an agenda of new and old resolutions, beginning with the return of homecoming week.

Current PR Senator Lincoln Scott and Senator Pia Lomboy said that the fall semester is a time when SAC join forces, working to understand individual positions and pass resolutions.

In the spring semester the Senate begins to work on implementing the resolutions. “The main goal is to make sure all the students — and every kind of students’ — needs are met,” said Scott.

According to Frankie Jones, former public relations senator for SAC, this fall started strong after restructuring in the student government created confusion in 2012.

Jones said, “I think this board has been amazingly successful in getting in order because we have a bunch of new senators that are straight out of high school, and when I have been on the board, it has been really dysfunctional. And I have seen this board getting some really good work done.”

According to Jones, a major setback in the student government was a decision by the Board of Governors in 2012 declaring that the student government was not, in fact, a government entity but an organization.

“The Board of Governors renamed us the Student Associated Council, and we had to have a new constitution ratified, and with the new constitution we had to assign new positions,” said Jones.

The transition from year to year is not always smooth, according to council members, and sometimes dealing with the shortcomings of previous student councils due to changes made in policy on campus can be very challenging.

The decision by the Board of Governors created a separation between CaEB,the former student government’s sister organization, as well as the Inter Club Council, according to Jones and Scott.

The student government had previously worked hand in hand with these other campus organizations, allowing for a smoother approach to concerns that affected the student body all across the board, said Jones. The rift between the government and CaEB and ICC created confusion in each organization.

According to Scott, this semester these organizations have picked up the pieces and worked together again, accomplishing old goals and developing new ones.

Among their successes, CaEB, ICC and SAC brought the traditional homecoming week celebration back to City College.

“As long as Sac City has been a college, they have done a homecoming week,” said Jones. “For the last two years we haven’t had a homecoming because of the constitution ratification. This year CaEB really got the ball rolling instantly.”

According to Scott, homecoming was a success. The combined efforts of the clubs on campus getting together to celebrate school spirit went over very well.

“The clubs sold food and led a canned food drive for an entire week, and they held a rally,” said Scott.

SAC is also working with the Sustainability club in an effort to jumpstart the college’s composting program, said Scott. The resolution for a composting program was passed by the previous Council and Campus Development, a faculty-led task force, but was never actually implemented
when it was created two semesters ago.

Other resolutions include the Student Leadership Advisory Network, or the Student LAN project. This resolution will give accurate representation to students on the main campus and at the West Sacramento and Davis campuses.

“The LAN project delegates a certain number of students for the Senate members to talk to each day and find out about issues and concerns affecting them,” said Scott. “The students can give us their input on how we should be representing them accurately.”

According to Scott, SAC also hopes to pass resolutions establishing a homeless student outreach program associated with LAN, as well as trying to obtain more student discounts in the areas around City College, and setting up sleeping stations in the Learning Resource Center in the spring semester.
