It’s Oath Week 2013. Throughout the week, various events will be held to focus around the Oath of Inclusion. The events are open to all members of the SLU and St. Louis communities.
The keynote address will take place tomorrow evening at 7:30 in the Saint Louis University Museum of Art (SLUMA). Rabbi Susan Talve, of the Central Reform Congregation, will be speaking on the importance of inclusion and activism in the plight for social justice. Rabbi Susan has helped lead both local and global social justice movements. Her congregation has become a safe space for Jews of the LGBTQ identity, and Jews of Color. Rabbi Susan has also helped advocate for workers’ and laborers’ rights, universal access to healthcare, and peace for the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.

Chairs are really underrated things. People rely on chairs every day to support and comfort them while they work. Without chairs, we would have to do work on the ground, or standing up, and that would be totally uncomfortable. Plus, the right chairs can really bring a room together, in a feng shui sort of way. What I’m trying to say is this: good furniture is important.
Which is why Pius Library is inviting students to come check out different options for new furniture. Starting today (Monday, November 14) until Friday, you can cast your vote on which style of study carrels, task chairs, lounge seating, group seating, and group study spaces you like best.
This event is brought to you by SGA, and they had this to say:
Your Student Government Association has been working with SLU’s administration to renovate Pius XII Memorial Library to improve the amount and the quality of student space available. We want the students to have a direct voice in the process, so please take five minutes before your study session in Pius this week to test out the furniture samples on the third floor.
If you have any questions about this event or would like to provide additional feedback on Pius Library, please email Patrick Grillot, SGA Academic Vice President, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SGA is here to advocate for any concern that you have as a student at SLU might have. You can always contact SGA via email at email@example.com.
On Saturday, October 8th members of the Student Government Association executive board traveled to the Eastern Reception and Diagnostic Correctional Center in Bonne Terre, Missouri. The center is home to the Saint Louis University College In Prison Program (CIPP). The SGA representatives traveled to the campus in order to speak with the CIPP students, including the incarcerated students and the staff students.
The following video summarizes the reflections those members had on their experience within the prison walls, as well as a testament to the commitment SGA has to the insurance of success for CIPP and for the students.
The visit was conducted with intentions of interacting with individuals the SGA representatives consider to be fellow students. The incarcerated and staff students are constituents of SGA and are thus important members for the voice of the students to interact with.
