  • Open Forum:
    • Purcell previously said there were no building addresses on campus, which made it hard for first responders to find the locations of students on the Shadyside campus. As a result, Chatham was asked to change the addresses on the Shadyside campus, leading to some confusion within Amazon’s system. In regards to the Amazon packages that were lost, Purcell reported that Chatham is working with Amazon to rectify the issue.
    • Class 2025 Vice President Madison Smith asked about the potential for microwaves to be installed in Anderson Dining Hall. Class 2024 Representative Melissa Redding also brought up the issue of multiple cases of raw meat served in Anderson Dining Hall. The Senate referred both issues to the Food Committee. 
  • Appointments and Resignations:
  • Ashbey Kirkpatrick was appointed as the president of the class of 2024.
