Happy Wednesday, Long Beach State! On behalf of everyone in your ASI student government, we hope your break has been as fulfilling as you need, if not more. Be sure to enjoy the rest of it, and don't forget to mark your calendars with upcoming events such as Queer Speed Dating , the Owen's Condition for Tuition Finale and Conscious Collection once school starts up again!

This week's edition of Inside Student Government highlights the ways in which your student representatives are constantly working to ensure your voices are heard. Through the efforts of our governing bodies, our leading principle of shared governance is upheld within and throughout every division of ASI. Our work from last week was no exception, and we welcome you to learn more about it below during your time off.
