Bowdoin Student Government (BSG) approved one decision at its first meeting of the year on Wednesday, unanimously deciding to update the bylaws of the Student Organization Oversight Committee.
Prior to the update, the SOOC bylaws described several functions that no longer applied to the organization. The update preserved the SOOC’s adjudication procedures, which enable the organization to judge and punish student groups who violate BSG regulations. Last year, the SOOC followed these procedures during their investigation of the Meddiebempsters.
 “I didn’t change anything that was groundbreaking,” said Brian Kim ’13, BSG vice president for student organizations, referring to the updated bylaws.
BSG discussed the shuttle system, which operated over fall break for the first time this year, and was in high demand, running at capacity for most of the weekend.
The remainder of the meeting was spent introducing each of the committees, all of which briefly described their functions and goals for the year.
“This meeting was really about getting the ball rolling,” said Dani Chediak ’13, BSG president. “It was an orientation of sorts.”
