This week’s AS senate meeting began with a meeting with NakID Ministries to raise awareness of the needs of LGBT students on campus. Brandon Banda, junior business administration major, Kira Bester, sophomore studio arts major and Baylee Acosta, sophomore psychology major, expressed concerns regarding stereotyping on campus, as well as ways for LGBT students to feel recognized and accepted.

Don Bernstein and Joey Declerq from the Biola alumni office shared the Biola Career Advisor Network to the senators. The network is a new resource for students to connect with alumni for resume consultations and career conversations with alumni in the student’s field of interest.


AS president Tyler Hormel proposed $2,842.80 for three buses to offer rides to students for the Biola concert at the Ace Hotel on May 9. “A Soul of Conviction, A Voice of Courage: The Campaign for Biola University" will feature Phil Wickham, The Brilliance and Josh Garrels. If passed, the buses would offer 171 seats available to students with free rides to and from the Ace Hotel.


Hormel’s Ace Hotel bus proposal will be voted on during the next senate meeting after spring break.

Sophomore communications major Liam Timoti’s proposal of $4,297 for Hart Hall’s “Heat of the Night” event was passed 15 to zero with one abstention for the partial amount of $3,000.

Senior film major Melissa McAllister’s proposal for the Biola Film Festival was passed unanimously for the full amount of $1,000.
