THE SILLIMAN UNIVERSITY STUDENT GOVERNMENT (SUSG) assembly passed 21 resolutions for this school year. Eight of which have been approved by the SUSG president.
More resolutions will be added to the list as the last assembly meeting will be in March, according to Aprille Roselle Vince Juanillo, head of the SUSG Committee on Resolutions.
Six out of the eight approved resolutions were by the representatives of the Institute of Clinical Laboratory Sciences (ICLS).
Juanillo, one of the ICLS representatives, said that they are only serving their colleges as they have promised.
“I, for one, could say that we weren’t after the number of resolutions we could pass, we were after what we could do for our college, its people, and Silliman. And it just goes to show that a lot still needs to be given attention, specifically in our department,” Juanillo added.
The resolutions drafted by both Juanillo and co-ICLS representative, Marc Manaban, include a request for a means of transportation for students from the main campus to the Angelo King (AK) building, place a pedestrian lane in front of Hibbard Gate at Silliman Avenue, and repair the green benches outside AK.
Juanillo and Manaban, together with Raby Palomo, Techy Gonzales, and Jesah Estrellado of the Institute of Rehabilitative Sciences, drafted a resolution for repainting the institute signs at AK.
In addition, Manaban authored a resolution for the institutionalization of the SUSG External Programs Committee official logo. The External Programs Committee, according to Juanillo, was implemented just this school year.
“It is the primary executive committee that caters to all needs and concerns as well as extend student government programs, activities, and services to officially-enrolled students outside the Silliman campus,” Juanillo said.
On the other hand, Juanillo also authored a resolution for the installation of ladders and siderailings for the double-decked beds of the cooperative dorms for girls.
She added that this resolution is one of the few passed resolutions that have been executed.
The other two approved resolutions include the one authored by Jil Varon and Clark Ferrer of the College of Nursing to place mirrors in the comfort rooms at the third floor of the Olivia Villaflores Yanson building.
Representatives of the School of Basic Education, Carissa Araco, Windyll Orlina, and Ray Chiu, also authored a resolution for the complete disinfection and proper maintenance of the filtering systems of the drinking fountains in the junior high school campus.
According to Juanillo, the current SUSG administration has the responsibility to execute the approved resolutions until their term ends in May.
The other resolutions approved by the assembly include: installation of room divider for Com Room 1 and 2, installation of tissue vendo machines at Emilio T. Yap Hall, declaration of February as Students’ Rights and Welfare Month (Sommer Buyante and Renz Macion);
