Letter from the AS President (February 1)

AS President Lauren McClain.

Hey Otters,

I hope you are settling into your spring courses nicely and learning lots! I have been busy
working all winter break for you to make sure that our campus gets better and better every day.

One of my main focuses is on the food pantry. I have been working heavily on food insecurity on campus during my term and based on your feedback, we are implementing a new structure this semester. Starting with our first pantry on February 8th, we will be having two pantries per event. Each food pantry day, we will be distributing bags of food to current students from 11am – 1pm and 5pm – 7pm.

We will also be working to have more options and more nutritious, whole food. Feedback helps make us better so we will always welcome additional input. A complete list of food pantry dates can be found online at csumb.edu/as/food-pantry.

If you’ve seen AS initiatives like the food pantry, or you are always thinking of issues you’d like to address on campus, I’d highly encourage to run in our elections. Packets are available to fill out now and are due February 23rd. More information can be found on our website under the “Elections” tab.

If you are interested in social justice, diversity and inclusion, or becoming the AS president, here is your chance. This is a great opportunity for anyone who is looking to make a change here at CSUMB and possibly beyond. Feel free to reach out with any questions.

See you around!
