Blais delivers State of the Student Union address

| Thursday, December 7, 2017

Student body president Becca Blais gave her State of the Student Union address at student senate’s Wednesday night meeting. Blais talked about the many accomplishments of the Student Union thus far in her term.

“Your work in the Student Union has culminated in nearly 100 different policy and programming initiatives, with more to come,” Blais said.

Blais cited a few, mentioning changes made during the summer to University Health Services, the introduction of LimeBike, the Flick on the Field event, support for DACA and undocumented students, initiatives related to Notre Dame-South Bend relations and GreeNDot training for both Student Union members and varsity athletes.

“Where are we now? Last senate of the semester, 250 days down, 115 to go in this term,” Blais said.

Even though only 75 days will remain in her term after winter break, Blais hopes the accomplishments of the Student Union will continue.

“It is never too late to try something new and engage in these roles in creative ways,” Blais said. “We will not slow down, we will not keep pace, but we will strive beyond in our service this spring.”

Finally, Blais echoed the sentiment with which she began the address.

“If people aren’t calling us crazy, then we aren’t doing enough,” Blais said.
