Hello, Spartans! Happy Fall!

Due to President Trump’s announcement rescinding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, the A.S. Board of Directors took action and allocated up to $150,000 to the SJSU Economic Crisis Response Team toward the use of scholarships for the fees associated with DACA renewal applications for SJSU students. If you or someone you know is a student in need of this resource, please email undocuspartan@sjsu.edu .

The Smith/Carlos statue recently underwent restoration work led by the statue’s sculptor, Rigo 23. The restoration is being completed to replace damaged tiles and grout to preserve the statues’ quality. In fall 2018, SJSU will celebrate the 50 th year anniversary of the powerful actions of Tommie Smith and John Carlos in the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City.
