WACO, Texas--Student senate passed two resolutions in support of Adam Todd and Mark Hudson.

The unexpected death of Adam Todd left many in grief. Todd was a vital part of the Baylor family and a light to all who knew him. Student Government offers its condolences and prayers to the friends and family of Adam Todd during this holiday season.

Baylor was also grieved to receive the news of the passing of Mark Hudson. Hudson was a part of the Sigma Nu Fraternity and active on Baylor's campus. His presence as a student and friend will be dearly missed. Student Government also wishes to send its deepest sympathy and prayers to the family and friends of Mark Hudson during this time.

Men from BU Cellect came to the senate meeting to promote their idea of a mobile campus. BU Cellect would allow students and faculty at Baylor to receive information through media sources of their choice (internet, e-mail, or text messages). The mobile information service allows participating business and organizations to send participants new deals with their company, deadlines for organizational membership dues, and merchandise offers. BU Cellect will hopefully move to other college campuses in the future.

The men of Beta Upsilon Chi were given $17,500 from the Student Life fund for Island Party next semester. Island Party is an entire evening to enjoy life, God's blessings, and to have fun at the same time.

A resolution was made to begin dialog with the Baylor faculty and board of regents to change and/or edit the questions in the faculty evaluation sheets. Students hope to accomplish a possible system to give students access to parts of the faculty evaluations.

Allan Marshall announced new external vice president cabinet members. Amanda Beattie will work with other private colleges about issues they face, and Caleb Gallifant will work on community involvement.

Mark Laymon and Travis Plummer ended the meeting with a reminder that life is precious and time with friends is valuable. They reminded students to continuing praying for the family and friends of Adam Todd and Mark Hudson.
