New visitation policy discussed in senate
by Kevin Bess
Student Senate is studying a proposal
whicn would extend visitation to 7 days a week
- but the penalties are raising concerns among
a few senators.
The executive committee of Student Gov
ernment Association (SGA) proposed a new
visitation policy at the third senate meeting
this year. The proposal allowed for visitation
Monday through Thursday from 3 p.m. to 10
p.m., Friday and Saturday from 12 p.m. until
12 a.m., and Sunday from 12 p.m. until 10 p.m.
Along with the new hours, the proposal
also included a new set of violation penalties.
The penalty for a first offense, under this
proposal, is a $100 fine and disciplinary pro

freedom given by the new policy.

After the floor was opened to the gallery

resident advisor to police visitation in order to
enforce the new penalties.
A motion for a re-count was made, and
Ambrose took this opportunity to make a mo

The Student Life Committee met on Oc
tober 8 to give recommendations concerning
the new Student Government Association Con
stitution which has ah-eady been passed and
voted into effect by the Student Senate.
It was recommended by the committee to
review the constitution, with outside help, in
order to correct language and inconsistencies
present in the document.
Students were scheduled to vote on the
new constitution on October 12, but the voting
will be postponed until the document is re
Students were invited to comment on the
new constitution and some students did re

committee and the members of the executive
body of SGA.
The executive officers of SGA hoped to
present the constitution to the Gardner-Webb

voted on by the students and submitted for the
senior staffs approval first, so the possibility
of presenting it to the board seems doubtful.
