Week 2-TSG Bulletin

By Amir Emadi ’13

As the Thunderbird Student Government (TSG) president, I am very pleased to have the opportunity to lead towards a collaborative community on campus. Please give me the opportunity to hear your questions and comments about Thunderbird, TSG, and its team:

You can contact any of us at the TSG; we are here to listen and serve you.


Trimester Representative Applications

Deadline: September 17, @5pm
Location: TSG office or any TSG member on campus
(no online submission)

1st and 2nd trimester representatives have an opportunity to be a part of the internal student government body and learn more about the various roles we do on a daily basis. Trimester Reps will be in charge of bringing forward student issues, shadow a chair who deals in their area of interest, and act towards a progressive and collaborative goal.

Access the application by going to MTB Discussion Board > (in the Discussions box) > Ask TSG


Club Activation Applications
Deadline: September 17, @5pm
Location: TSG office or Shreyas Gore

If you’re interested in starting a club, you must have attended the mandatory meeting last week. The TSG had sent an email to all students interested in starting clubs, and we were very excited by how many attended. Clubs become official only after students have made their allocations, which should finalize the week following club day.

Regional Club Meeting
Date: Tuesday, September 17th
Time: 1-2:30pm
Location: LH54

At this meeting, TSG will discuss regional nights and other activities that regional clubs coordinate. If you do not attend, you will miss out on the most important information your club can attain and participate in changing.

Mandatory Treasurer’s Review
Date: Thursday, September 20th
Time: 1-2:30pm
Location: LH54
Host: Martena

Every treasurer from each club must attend this one-time, mandatory meeting. It helps TSG ensure that we have communicated and helps clubs better understand the required practices between club treasurers and TSG.

Club Day

Date: Friday, September 21st
Time: 4-6:00pm (allocations begin at 4pm)

Due to the many students who attended NAAMBA on September 14th (2nd week of the trimester) when we would normally hold Club Day, students have an additional week to prepare their clubs.

For setup:

  • Chairs and tables will be supplied near power outlets
  • Clubs are responsible for bringing, supervising, and cleaning up their own equipment.
  • Limited numbers of easels will be available, which will be divided equally around the TAC
  • Clubs are welcome to bring packaged snacks and refreshments for attendees
