by justin tristano

Partial results are in for the Associated Student Body Government (ASBG) elections, which concluded May 4. Two-hundred thirty students in total voted in the election. Write-in results from the election are to be released next week. Lorena Campos is the new ASBG president going into the 2012-13 school year, having received 82 votes. Campos is currently the senator of legislative affairs. A student who only just recently joined ASBG in the spring semester, Campos currently has a few goals with a heavy focus on improving the communication of ASBG and the students. When asked about her plans to reach out to students, Campos emphasized College Hour as well as increasing announcements and fliers.

Campos said she doesn’t believe ASBG’s loss of the flea market and the subsequent challenges in finding funding will hinder the governing body in upcoming seCAMPOS mesters. “I don’t believe the board solely relies on the resources it has,” Campos said. “I don’t believe it relies on finances” With proper planning, Campos believes ASBG will be able to continue its operation on campus. She said this semester ASBG spending was under the budget limitations instated by outgoing President Nicholas Aguirre. “(We) worked hard not to exceed our limits to keep everything in budget,” Campos said. Campos wants to inform stu-

dents of their rights and allow them to understand how they can impact the campus environment. Campos also wishes to improve the students and the members of ASBG by seeing the “strengths and weaknesses and plan our goals.”

DRUMMING TOWARDS FINALS: Jeni Swerdlow, owner of DRUMMM Rhythmic Events, leads students in a drum circle on May 3.

Students drum away stress by eliana romero

One of the last College Hours of the semester brought many students together to release their stress for finals by dancing and playing to the beat of the drums. The Associated Student Body Government (ASBG) brought Jeni Swerdlow, the owner of DRUMMM Rhythmic Events in Oakland, to unite the students on campus by conducting a drum circle.

Many students participated in the drum circle while those who didn’t stayed and watched as Swerdlow encouraged the students to continue beating their drums. Knowing how to play the drums wasn’t necessary to join. “The thing we liked about Jeni is that she brought in that anybody can drum,” said Bronche Taylor, vice president of student affairs. “We can all drum together and release stress from doing it.”
