The Shapiro Campus Center will not be open 24 hours a day during finals due to the budgetary constraints of the Division of Student Life. Assistant Dean of Student Life Alwina Bennett is expected to make the announcement this Sunday to the Student Union Senate.

Student Union President Jenny Feinberg 07 gave her State of the Union address Tuesday night in the Shapiro Atrium. Feinberg spoke on a number of topics, including finance reform, academic issues, and Union Initiatives.

As the President of this organization, I see no other way to govern than to assert the most passion into our microcosm of the real world and gain an intimate understanding of our school. And that has been my approach in guiding the Student Union this semester, said Feinberg in her address.
