A Message From the CSRC


November 27, 2018

Dear Fellow Pios,

Hello! My name is Mikah Bertelmann and I’m the ASLC Community Service & Relations Coordinator. As part of the responsibility of the CSRC, I oversee providing the New York Times to the Lewis & Clark community and I’m excited to announce that effective Monday, December 3rd, you will now have full complimentary access to NYTimes.com and NYT mobile apps among other amazing features outlined here.

To activate your pass for free access, follow these steps:

  1. Visit AccessNYT.com and be sure to use your @lclark.edu email address.
  2. Follow the simple instructions to create your account.
  3. Once activated, your pass will provide unlimited and uninterrupted access to NYTimes.com from any location until the time you graduate.

In anticipation of this exciting new offering and in an effort to make L&C more sustainable, ASLC will be cutting back the number of print copies provided beginning in the Spring. If you cannot access the NYT online, be sure to seek out one of the limited number of print copies from outside Fields Dining Hall.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at csrc@lclark.edu. For support with the onboarding process, please fill out the link here.

Have a great rest of the semester,

Mikah Bertelmann ’21, Community Service & Relations Coordinator

Senate Candidates 2018

Hello Pios!

Attached to this email you’ll find the Fall 2018 ASLC Voter Information Packet, which contains candidate statements and photos for each of the students running for ASLC Senate. A separate email will go out in a few minutes with a link to your ballot. There are eighteen candidates running for twelve Senate seats, and you can vote for up to twelve candidates.

I would encourage you to take a few minutes to read over the statements before voting; these candidates are running to represent you and your fellow students and to solve problems that you see on campus. Voting is one of the best ways for you to have a say in your student government.

Voting will be open for exactly one week, so be sure to submit your ballot by 9:30 a.m. next Tuesday, September 25. Then stop by the ASLC table outside the Bon this week to pick up an I Voted sticker!

Additionally, the annual Senate debate will take place this Thursday, September 20, at 7pm in the Council Chambers. The debate is an opportunity for all of the Senate candidates to elaborate on their statements and talk about what concrete steps they would like to take if elected.

There will be a period for questions from the community, so if you have an issue with some aspect of student life, this is a great time to see where these candidates stand and how they’re planning to address it. Additionally, there will be free pizza for all attendees!

If you have any questions about voting or the debate, please don’t hesitate to contact me at elections@lclark.edu.
