    ASUN readies out to students
with service-awareness survey
BY MARGARET BEHM
Student government mem
bers want you to tell them what
you know.
The Association of Students of
the University of Nebraska is con
ducting an Awareness Day on
Nov. 8th.
Members of ASUN will intro
duce themselves to students and
ask if they know about a variety of
services ASUN provides.
Questions such as whether
students know they can get a free
lawyer through Student Legal
Services are on the questionnaire.
Speaker of the Senate Jason
Mashek said he was in favor of
passing the bill, which passed 18
- 5.
“I think what this is saying is
that we care what the students
think,” he said. “I’m not advocat
ing that this is the only effort we
make, but it’s a good start”
Polling will take place in and
around the Nebraska Union,
Union Plaza, Nebraska East
Union and the Hewit Athletic
Academic Center.
All senators and executive
board members will poll students
for at least an hour between 10
a.m. and 3 p.m. on Nov. 8.
Arts and Sciences Sen. Angela
Clements said she hoped the poll
would inspire senators to educate
the students they represent.
"This is to jump-start some of
you who don’t know what to do in
ASUN to do something,” she said.
Some senators, including
Engineering and Technology Sen.
Emily Bannick, voiced opposition
to the proposed bill.
“I think thatwe’re just goingto
be sitting in the union for an hour
and a lot of people might just say,
‘No, I don’t want to take this stu
pid survey,”’ she said.
General Studies Sen. Michelle
Schrage said that even if students
passing by choose not to take the
survey, it’s at least worth a try.
“There is no harm in passing
this bill,” she said. “The only thing
that could happen to us is that we
waste an hour of our day.”
In other senate new.
■ A bill passed that requires
each senator to get in touch with
the college he or she represents.
Senators will research the aca
demic resources available in their
fields of study. They will report
that information to the Academic
Committee.
Student government wants to
compile the information to have a
database of educational
resources available in each col
lege for students to access.
It was passed without debate
with a vote of 18 for and 8 abstain
ing.
■ ASUN President Joel
Schafer also announced an
online-voting petition drive.
If 5 percent of the student
population signs the petition, a
special election will be held to ’
determine whether online voting
becomes a reality.
