Amid the array of fraternities, sororities .
.and student organizations that steal study
time from students is the University's Student
Government Association which operates with
a staff of between 400 and 500.
"Student Government is a huge operation
with literally 100 different projects going on
at one time," said Student Body President
Scott Norberg. "We're making every effort
for students to know what we're doing and
(how they can) help us with ideas and sug
gestions. ' Norberg said Student Government was di
vided into three branches executive, legis
lative and judicial.
The executive branch has a staff of more
than 200 people with four executive assist
ants, 11 cabinet members and their commit
Tavia Hutching one of Norberg's four ex
ecutive assistants, works closely with cabinet
members and with students who are interest
ed in becoming involved with Student Gov
ernment. She suggested that interested, stu
dents stop by the office, or Suite C as it is
commonly called, in the Carolina Union.
"Students should let us know that they are
interested," Hutchins said. "Anyone can get
involved. There's lots to do and everyone
has a chance to get involved."
Cabinet committees study state affairs,
national affairs, student services, town af
fairs, athletics, transportation, University
services, housing, University relations, aca
demic procedures and educational policy.
Student Government's legislative body, .
the Campus Governing Council, is made up
of 27 elected representatives-from 23 Uni
versity districts, which involves undergradu
ate and graduate students. Norberg said one
of the main concerns of the CGC is to allo
cate a $400,000 budget each year. These
funds come from student activities fees.
El Chino Martin, speaker of the Campus
Governing Council and vice president of Stu
dent Government, said he became involved
in Student Government as a freshman on the
Academic Procedures Committee. During his
sophomore year, Martin was a CGC represen
tative and a member of the finance commit
"It's best for a freshman to start off in the
executive branch since there are so many
cabinet (positions)," Martin said. "Students
should talk to (CGC) representatives if they
want to seek election to offices." All seats
on CGC wiU be vacant in February.
Martin said that in the two years he had
been involved in Student Government, the
CGC iad become more independent of the
other branches of Student Government CGC
has the responsibility of approving allocation
of funds and also major projects including
Chapel Thrill, which is an outdoor spring con
cert with a $120,000 budget. ,
"We're not there to act as a rubber stamp
for the executive branch. We take a very crit
ical stance on issues" he said.
The judicial branch, which includes the
Honor Court, is the third branch of Student
Government Mark Carpenter, student at
torney general, said that applications for
court members and the attorney general's
staff came out in the spring, and court
members and his staff had already been
chcsert Anyone interested in the court should
come by, he said
The honor court is made up of a chairman,
two vice chairmen and 30 other members.
Five members, including the chairman, or
of his vice chairmen, preside over a
hearing. The court hears cases involving stu
dent violations of the campus code which
