New genderless bathroom in progress and discounted faculty gym membership becomes official
Maritess Inieto, University Student Union Board of Trustees chair, said that construction was underway on a new genderless, multi-stall bathroom in the USU. At the Associated Students Inc. Senate meeting Wednesday, she said that the stall is set to be finished by Jan. 21.
The Lunch Express Membership, a pilot gym membership that allowed faculty and staff to use the Student Recreation and Wellness Center at a discounted rate from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., has now become a permanent membership, Inieto said.
Explanation provided for delayed escalator repair
ASI Executive Director Richard Haller said that the reason the USU escalator wasn’t working was due to water damage on a controller. The controller, which is used to change the direction of the escalator’s travel, needs to be replaced, Haller said. He also pointed out that they were two weeks past their initial time frame for repairing the escalator.
