Graduating seniors bid their final farewells and new elects were sworn in at the Student Government general body meeting on Wednesday, April 23.
Senior Tyler Liberty concluded his final meeting as Student Government president by passing the gavel down to Matthew Wells, the new president for the upcoming school year.
Other senior members looked back on their tenures in Student Government during the emotional final meeting: senator of science Chloe Fama, vice president of Advancement Jen Toth, assistant ACM representative Hajar Lakhouli, vice president of Governmental Affairs Alex Brown, senior class council secretary Katrina Xyloportas, senior class council treasurer Josephine D’Amico, vice president for Student Services Annie Montero, senior class council vice president Santina Mazzola, speaker Devin Dimmig, senator of Humanities and Social Sciences Anushka Patel, Executive Vice President Daria Wells, senior class council president Grace Moran and vice president of Equity and Diversity Sadia Tahir.
Before the conclusion of her last meeting as vice president of Equity and Diversity, Tahir announced that the third issue of Diversity University has been published.
Tahir went on to explain the “I, Too, Am TCNJ” campaign, intended to highlight instances of racial microaggression.
“Harvard, Oxford, Berkeley and other colleges have this campaign, too,” Tahir said.
Students can add their own experiences to the wall outside the Brower Student Center, which currently lists phrases like, “‘At least you aren’t that dark’ isn’t a compliment,” “Black culture is not ghetto” and other examples of racism faced by students.
Moran spoke later in the meeting about Senior Week planning.
“It’s the culmination of the senior experience,” she said.
Moran told students who have any questions to contact her for more information regarding Senior Week.
