Inside Student Government provides weekly summaries of all major board meetings within student government: the president's cabinet, lobby corps, board of control and the senate. Please take a moment to read the summaries from each section.
As midterm season comes to a close, it's time to emphasize your personal wellness. With Wellness Week beginning this Monday, ASI has exactly what you need to reflect on your lifestyle and develop your wellness habits.

Start the week strong at the Beach Wellness Week Kick-Off, a three-hour resource fair on Monday at 11 a.m. at the USU Southwest Terrace. This event, like the many others occurring during Wellness Week, will provide you with information on wellness resources and give you tips on living your best life! Check out the full list of events here. Be sure to check out "Wellness Wednesday: Eating Healthy on a Budget" to get some helpful dietary tips from yours truly!

This past week, the Senators that focus on transferring and graduate student concerns and I met with officials from the Beach Transfer Transition Center ( BTTC) to discuss our goals and possible collaboration. With National Transfer Student Week beginning this Monday, I encourage transfer students to take a trip to the Student Success Center to visit the BTTC and see what resources are available for them.

Many of your fellow students work tirelessly to make sure ASI is working for students, by students, and we want you to be connected with their efforts. I highly encourage you to find your senator on our website and reach out to them with any questions or concerns you might have. Stop by USU-311 to find out when their office hours are to chat in person, reach out via email, or check us out on Facebook to watch live-streamed senate meetings. Another great way to see what goes on in student government is by reading our meeting minutes, all of which can be found on our website.

Have a great rest of your week!
