Second concert funds approved

Student Senate greenlights show.

Senate passed a bill Sunday funding another concert, this time put one on by the Association of Residence Halls. The concert will feature Logic, an up-and-coming hip-hop artist. It will take place sometime in mid-April, before the big Spring Jam concert in May.

“This is a way to bring a big event for ARH,” ARH Programming Board Treasurer Johnny Roche said. “This is a fun, free way to do that and bring people back to the residence halls.”

No date is set yet for the concert, but ARH is looking to hold it in the ballroom at the Memorial Union.

Senator Kristin Emmonds was not in favor of the bill because it is so close to the Spring Jam concert.

“I don’t want attendance at either concert to suffer since we are putting so much effort and money into Spring Jam,” Emmonds said.

Parking issues

State Governmental Affairs Coordinator John Mitzel brought back results from last week’s Tuesday Twos. The questions focused on parking and received a lot of responses. Over 82% of the respondents said they considered parking at UND to be unsatisfactory. Mitzel is planning a meeting and encouraged all senators to attend to find ways to improve parking on campus.

“We need to identify some of the problems,” Mitzel said. “We need to figure out what we can do to work with the parking office to better serve students.”
