On Wednesday, Bowdoin Student Government (BSG) president Derek Brooks '12 discussed the faculty's rejection of the proposal to extend Thanksgiving break at the Monday night faculty meeting.

"This isn't what [BSG] wanted, but we're going to redraft [proposals] and submit them to faculty committees that we have representation on," says Brooks. "It's unfortunate, but it's not over and is by no means dead."

Despite support from individuals such as President Barry Mills, Dean of Student Affairs Margaret Hazlett, Professor of Psychology Suzanne Lovett and BSG, the faculty rejected the proposal 47-28.

Also in its meeting, BSG considered two proposals, the first of which would allot $200 towards the purchase of 160 compact fluorescent low-energy light bulbs (CFLs) through Sustainable Bowdoin.

"This is something that we've done over the past few years as part of a sustainability initiative," said Vice President for Facilities Chase Taylor '12. "The price for light bulbs has gone up, but we're going to keep our funding to $200."

The proposal to purchase the CFLs was approved with only two dissenting votes. BSG decided to amend the proposal and install the light bulbs after winter break rather than before.

Kaitlin Donahoe '13 presented the second proposal, which, if passed, would allocate $1,500 toward the purchase of 150 T-shirts to sponsor a Pink the Rink event benefitting breast cancer research. BSG will deliberate on this proposal after winter break.
