On Wednesday Oct. 3, FSU’s student senate hosted a session in the Florida State Capitol House Chambers downtown.

The 64th student senate of FSU, alongside many members from FAMU’s student senate were first welcomed by FSU Student Body President Rueben Stokes who took time to thank house representatives and recognize the nature of the legislation being passed in the night’s session.

“Senators, I want to thank you all,” said Stokes. “I think what we do here is, the legislation being passed this evening recognizes individuals in a higher level of government that make daily decisions that affect our well-being and the status of our university. It’s important that we thank and acknowledge them for their due diligence and providing an atmosphere for us to come and be educated.”

Stokes also took time to thank the Director of the Office of Governmental Affairs for FSU Harrison DuBosar for working with Tallahassee’s Pittman Law Group to secure the House Chambers for the night. The senate then welcomed a brief speech from DuBosar, who introduced the keynote speaker for the evening, Chancellor of the State University System of Florida Frank Brogan. The Board of Governors named Brogan Chancellor in 2009. read more…
