This week our committee is eager to begin on our goals. This week at our meeting we split up our first assignments for each of the senators. This week our senators will be reaching out to, meeting with, and discussing the first steps in accomplishing these goals. This week, our committee will be working closely with the Admissions Office, the Bear Card Office, UCA Campus Recreation, and students who are passionate about making a change on campus. 



Our committee members all were given their assignments!

Senator Burton- Bike Share Program / Email Name Change Policy/ HPER Swimsuit Policy

Senator Ramirez- Bear Facts Day RSO Involvement

Senator Culmer- Bear Card Wear and Tear Policy

Senator Griffin- Final Decision Day Project

Senator Abbott- Richard Hammond Project.

Senator Collins- Bear Essential Boxes

Our Senators will be working to reach out to make connections with their person of contact and be able to get their projects beginning.


Updates on our committee: 

Senator Burton found out that the name change email policy already exists and will not be pursuing the issue further. Senator Burton has also met with Mr. Richard Hammond of the UCA HPER Center and has discussed the swimsuit policy. This policy previously stated that females could only wear one piece swimsuits in the HPER pool. 

Senator Ramirez has met with Ashley Berry in Admissions. They have written a blurb to send out to all RSOs through Brandon Price with information on how to get involved with the Bear Fair.

Senator Culmer met with the Bear Card Office.

Senator Griffin has reached out to Ashley Berry and Courtney Bryant.

Senator Abbott has met with Mr. Richard Hammond to discuss his ideas for campus. 

Senator Collins met with Lesley Haynes to discuss placement of the Bear Essential Boxes. 


Fall Break


Senator Burton met with Mr. Hammond and the swimsuit policy was updated to include tasteful two piece swimsuits. The policy is included below. Senator Burton also has set up meetings across our campus to get our Bike Share Program to hopefully run on campus soon!!

Old Policy:

    • All swimwear must be modest in coverage, style, and cut.
    • Fabrics and colors must not be transparent or revealing.
    • No baggy street clothes allowed in the pool.
    • Women’s suits must cover the stomach (a form fitted tank top should be worn over your suit if you choose to wear a bikini).
    • Men’s suits must sit at the waist (no briefs). 

 Current Policy:

Swimmers may wear their own swimsuits during open swim times according to the following:

  • All swimwear must be determined modest in coverage, style, and cut by the Aquatics Center Staff.
  • Fabrics and colors must not be transparent or revealing
  • No baggy street clothes allowed in the pool.


Senator Ramirez has sent the blurb to Brandon Price to send out to all RSOs.

Senator Ramirez and Senator Abbott is working on a new project called "The Clawset." This will be a clothing closet for those on campus needing gently used clothes. We are excited to work on this project and get it off of the ground.

Senator Culmer has met with the Bear Card Office to find out there is a replacement policy in place for wear/tear Bear Cards.

Senator Collins looked into prices of the Bear Essential Boxes and will look into further options to present to Finance Committee.
