Hope you’re having a great Week 3 of school! The Monday dashboard numbers were almost too good to be true, so thank you to everyone for doing your part to keep us safe, healthy, and (for most of us) on campus. Heading into the third week, we wanted to highlight the recent exciting announcement that we can now add our Commodore Cards to our Apple Wallet! Although Android users may have to wait a bit longer to receive similar features (sorry!), those of us at VSG wanted to to give a huge shoutout to the Student Services Committee for working towards this goal over the past two years. Now that’s dedication to making our lives easier! If you don’t remember getting an email from the Commodore Card Office or have no idea what I’m talking about, you can read more about this awesome new feature here.
On a second committee note, there’s still time to check out working sessions and apply! Once you decide which committee you’re most passionate about, you can find the committee application on Anchor Link (here).
Senate elections are coming up, with candidates announced later this week. The Senate Election race officially begins this Friday, Sept. 11. Be sure to exercise your right to vote for your favorite candidate on Anchor Link starting Sept. 15 at 8 a.m., and ending Sept. 16 at 12 p.m..
As a reminder, if you’re interested in being the First-Year Representative, Director of Campus Outreach, or Director of Technology for Cabinet, be sure to apply here by Sept. 17. We will begin scheduling rolling interviews later this week, so if you’ve already applied, keep an eye out for those interview details. We’re excited to “meet” all of our applicants!
In addition, our Programming Team has been working with Vandy administration to organize weekly lawn events every Tuesday night, in an effort to better utilize outdoor spaces and give students more opportunities to safely socialize. The first kick-off event is next Tuesday, so keep a lookout for details!
Last but not least, check out the additional information below on updates to student parking, this year’s virtual Spotlight performance, and trying out for BhangraDores. And, I hope you enjoyed this picture of our Speaker of the Senate, Kate Petosa, rocking her favorite RBG look.
All the best,
VSG Director of Communications
