ASLC senators are responsible for representing the interests of the student body by reaching out to their fellow students, writing legislation, and serving on committees. Being a part of the Senate is a great way to make an impact on campus by focusing on issues that you and your peers are passionate about. Recent senators have worked together on projects ranging from funding the Counseling Center to creating common spaces on campus to creating a subsidy to make textbooks more affordable for low-income students. 

In order to run for Senate, you must be a full-time student in good academic standing who is able to attend weekly Senate meetings on Thursdays at 7:00pm. To be on the ballot, you must complete the attached application below and turn in 25 signatures from peers who support your candidacy. Further details about the elections process can be found in the attached application.

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
