On Wednesday, April 26, Bowdoin Student Government (BSG) convened in the Main Lounge for its final meeting before the transfer of power to the new executive council elected over the weekend.
Sam Thomson ’24 discussed the laundry sheets program. He explained that there would be scented and unscented sheets in the dispensers, supplied in packs of 10.
Cheng Xing ’23, the class of 2023 president, explained that his class council will be reimagining the “Bowdoin Seven” tradition from before the pandemic. During Senior Week, seniors can list seven other seniors they would like to interact with before they graduate. If two people list each other, they will be notified. One member of the senior class council will be in charge of connecting seniors who list each other but will have access to only the students’ emails, not their names, to increase confidentiality.
Melissa Su ’24, president of the class of 2024, noted that her class council is undertaking a partnership with Dog Bar Jim through which juniors who take a picture of themselves with another junior on the Quad and fill out the form Su sent out can acquire a $5 gift card to the coffee shop.
Eman Okyere ’25, chair of student affairs, highlighted that the next Mental Health Forum will be held on Thursday, May 4 from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in the 30 College Great Room. Members of the Baldwin Center for Learning and Teaching will be present, as the meeting will focus on academics and wellness.
Class council elections for the classes of 2024 and 2025 will be held in the coming weeks. Polls will open on Friday, May 5 at 8:00 a.m. and close on Sunday, May 7 at 8:00 p.m.
BSG will hold its final meeting of the semester next Wednesday, May 3, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., when executive council member-elects will take up their new positions.
