Director of communications and press Ryder Sullivan, 22, said the biographies of the presidential and vice-presidential candidates are now on the ASG website, as well as she finished a video on browsing on said ASG website. Additionally, she announced that the organization Why Not Us? would be hosting a spectator education event on Wednesday, March 2, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Tippie Alumni Center.
Attorney General Jack Parker, 22, announced that because Director of Sustainability and Environmental Affairs Andi Reiser, 23, and Biniewski had dropped out of the ASG presidential race, primary elections would no longer be held.
Parliamentarian Rachael Harris, 23, said next week there will be a Title IX spectator training event with Title IX coordinator Gilly Ford. She also gave details of the next presidential debate, which will take place on Tuesday, March 15 at 7:00 p.m. in the Quigley Auditorium. Ethan Woodfill, 22, and Roman Hladio, 23, editors of The Campus, will serve as moderators.
Additionally, Harris introduced 24-year-old Travis Dear to talk about the Allegheny Fishing Club, a potential ASG-recognized club seeking to vote for its constitution.
“I think the Fishing Club could be a great opportunity for Allegheny students to…learn more about fishing and what it has to offer and also…build a community around a sport that I love,” said Dear. “I think we can create a really good community involvement.”
Fishing Club was approved for the first week of voting. The second round will take place at the assembly next week.
Chief of Staff Genesis Pena, 22, announced that two students want to be approved for College Committee Councils: Becca Winton, 23, for the Academic Standards and Awards Committee; and Aja Short, 25, for the curriculum committee. The two motions of approval from the students were carried.

Estrada-Hernandez also reported that the class is looking to create a committee for the upcoming freshman formal to help with things like music selection and choosing a theme.
According to Vice President Sophie Adams, ’22 the loop went “without a hitch” this past weekend. Adams had heard that given the popularity of transportation with students, every twenty minutes at the Allegheny Commons on Fridays was getting a bit irritating, but she was glad it worked nonetheless.
“I had asked a student to run on weekdays,” Adams added. “If you have any strong opinions or are relying on it during the week and want to influence it, let me know.”
President Noah Tart, 22, reminded those who attended the Saturday service to email Director of Organizational Development Crystal Hernandez to ensure those hours of service were recorded.
The meeting adjourned at 7:44 p.m.
