Associated Students, Inc.: What has happened, what to expect

By Ryan Hickey

Associated Students, Inc. held a Student Experience event for students who were interested in being a apart of ASI.

The event informed students on different involvement opportunities on campus such as volunteering for the Bronco Events and Activities Team or joining ASI.

Furthermore, it gave ASI staff face time with other Cal Poly Pomona students.

Students who missed the event but are looking for job openings can find them on ASI’s website.

This quarter, BEAT has been busy programming both successful and seasonal events including Fall in the Farm and BroncoFusion.

BroncoFusion set new records by having sold more tickets than last year with more than 5,000 student attendess.

Reports say that students spent less time in lines than last year, since it was the second year the event was fenced off.

ASI was pleased to state that the event had no arrests or need for medical transports.

Earlier this October, BEAT presented its Fall in the Farm event, which allowed students some time in the pumpkin patch rather than attending with thousands of locals that come out every weekend.

BEAT reported that the more intimate event had about 300 students in attendance.

ASI Senate has made advancements in sustainability by developing new trash bins on campus.

The Bronco Student Center’s retrofitted trashcans were changed to encourage zero waste.

The bins promote recycling by educating students on what goes into recycling and landfills.

The trash bins are equal in size, which ASI hopes to subconsciously persuade students to put more trash in the recycling bins than into landfills.

ASI’s most recently released policy agenda covered two important topics, student advocacy and student education.

ASI President Farris Hamza delivered multiple student-friendly petitions to the California State Student Association.

He promoted the issue of keeping tuition low for students.

The senate also created the Governmental Affairs Committee to endorse students.

Throughout the fall quarter, the committee has focused on student health.

The committee presented issues like student loans and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals to the Cal State Student Association and has written a paper on Title IX petitioning its importance to United States Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos.

ASI Secretary of External Affairs Gustavo Callejas currently heads the Governmental Affairs Committee and has attended the Pomona’s city council meetings to advocate for CPP students.

As for the Internal Affairs Committee, they’ve focused on the future opening of the Poly Pantry.

Matters such as figuring out where the pantry will be permanently located is still ongoing.

CPP students can expect more information on the Poly Pantry, Title IX and tuition numbers as the school year goes on.

ASI events still on the calendar for the rest of the fall quarter include the following:

ASI, ASI LEAD and ASI BEAT will be hosting events for students throughout the rest of Fall Quarter
