BSG reflects on Board of Trustees Meeting, looks ahead to “Night with the Presidents”

After a busy week of meetings and events to attend, Bucknell Student Government met for a brief weekly Congress session to discuss any updates members had.

When the clock struck 4 p.m., President Sam Douds ’25 called the meeting to order, and Vice President of Administration Christine Ajao ’25 took attendance. After that, the executive board members went through their normal introductory material—public comments, reviewing the schedule and office hours and approving the minutes of the previous meeting.

The schedule for this meeting was relatively lighter as compared to others, so Douds took some time to share the executive board’s experience this past Friday at the Board of Trustees Meeting.

“It went very well,” Douds said. “The number one goal was to try and make sure we treated it with a degree of professionalism and seriousness necessary so we can keep coming back.”

Douds, along with the executive board, brought up topics frequently discussed in BSG Congress sessions and the pressing concerns and ideas top of mind for students across campus. 

“I think it’s a good step in the right direction in terms of increasing the accessibility of administrative and Board of Trustees people, but also the transparency of the institution,” said Douds. 

Isa Segura-Suarez ’25, Vice President of Operations, mentioned that she thought it was “really cool” that they were hearing from students and that this step is “opening the door” for future conversations to be had.

Douds also pressed the mandatory “Night with the Presidents” for the BSG Congress members, where they will be asking questions to President John Bravman, along with the Dean of Students and possibly the Interim Provost. 

As the calendar year is rapidly coming to an end, so is Douds’ term as President. He and Segura-Suarez made a comment about the upcoming BSG Executive Board elections, stressing to members all around the room that if they can run, they should go for it.

The Congress, through all of its seriousness, made time to engage in “Snaps,” which are always enjoyed by all.

To end, each committee chair gave a weekly debrief on past events and future goals for each. 

Right before the Congress was adjourned, they showed the Campus Pulse as well as the infamous “Caught in the Act.” 

The next Congress session will be held this Sunday, Nov. 5, at 4 p.m.
