Congress allocates $1,500 to ASA Culture Show, Discusses Brooks Village

Oct. 6, 2005

During regular session Thursday, Student Congress was given first glimps at the proposed Brooks Village, the new residential living facility proposed by Campus Living and Learning to replace Brooks Hall. Dr. Frank Shushok, Dean for Campus Learning and Engagement, showed Congress artist renderings floorplans of the site, and answered questions regarding construction, costs, and effects on resident life at the University. Dr. Shushok compared the new facility to similar designs taken from other universities such as Harvard and Cambridge. Shushok also said that, if approved by the Regents in their next meeting, construction could begin as early as summer 2006.

Student Congress also passed legislation allocating $1,500 of the Student Life Fund to the Asian Student Association for their 1st Annual Asian Fest and Culture Show. Congress also passed a support resolution extending condolences and prayers to the University of Oklahoma for the recent bombing tragedy that took place on the OU campus.

In special orders, Attorney General Rosie Gregg was elected as the Student Government homecoming nominee.
