2015-2016 Senate Elections


Good morning Pioneers,

Welcome new students, and welcome back all others.  I am writing to invite you to take part in ASLC, Lewis & Clark’s student government body.  Each class will elect six student leaders to be Senators and represent their class and interests at ASLC meetings.  Not only is this a fantastic resume builder, but also a great way to be engaged with a large number of students from various backgrounds and to help enact change at Lewis & Clark. You will advocate for student interest and help write legislation that edits the school’s Constitution based on student desires.

The requirements are simple: you must be a full time student in good academic standing who is able to commit to attend weekly Senate meetings on Thursdays at 7:00pm.  To be entered on the ballot you must complete the attached application, acquire 25 signatures of support from your peers and return the application to the ASLC office in Templeton 238 by Friday September 11 at 5:00pm.

Please remember that you are fortunate to study at a school that advocates the Democratic process.  Contrary to popular belief Barry Glassner is not all-powerful, and needs students like you to be champions of our liberties.  

Feel free to e-mail me with any questions, or inquire in the ASLC office.

Forever yours,

Adrian Austin-King ’16

Reed Voices Concerns Over Nude Tradition

ASLC discusses future of RKSK Initiation with member of Reed Honor Council

On Nov. 6, the Associated Students of Lewis & Clark met with Lee Belcher, a member of Reed College’s Honor Council, to discuss the tradition of Reed students streaking on LC’s campus. Belcher was concerned about the event, the Reed Kommunal Shit Kollektiv, which involves Reed first-years jogging naked through LC’s campus chanting Communist slogans.

Belcher started the discussion after this year’s event, when, they said, “many Reedies very vocally questioned whether the event [was] respectful to everyone at LC, specifically victims of sexual assault.”
