The Associated Students of the University of Arizona will hold its final senate meeting tonight for an ASUA end of the year presentation.

The senate and other ASUA officials will discuss their accomplishments and achievements from this academic school year, according to ASUA Executive Vice President and President-elect Emily Fritze.

Fritze is proud of this year’s senators.

“”The senators have done a great job of having a mixture of legislative debate and coming to compromises and cooperation on some issues,”” Fritze said. “”They have also done a good job visiting clubs, reaching out to the student population.””

She said an example of this is the gun forum, which was held in February, which sought out student opinion on the gun resolution.

“”The senate has also done well with their projects and reaching out to the UA and Tucson community as a whole,”” Fritze said.

ASUA will make final senate funding requests for any projects that senators may be working on, including a request for up to $600 for a disc jockey for the upcoming clothing drive at the ZonaZoo Undie Run.

“”I think that this year has been the highlight of my collegiate experience,”” said Sen. Tyler Quillin. “”My role in ASUA, and my role as senator, has made it such.””

He emphasized the broad job description of the senator position.

“”There’s a great responsibility that comes with being in senate with it because it’s really so open-ended, and there’s no set rigid job description,”” Quillin said. “”That’s great and also worrisome.””

He believes he has taken advantage of the opportunities he has received from being involved with ASUA.

“”I’ve done great things for students; I did what I could,”” Quillin said.

The new senate will be inaugurated May 3 and will hold their first meeting next week.
