Associated Student Government expects to release student guides Winter Quarter

Sophia Bollag, Copy Chief

After delays and setbacks, Associated Student Government now expects to release its unofficial student guides next quarter.

The online guides, which will be geared toward students both on campus and abroad, were initially scheduled to go live last academic year but were delayed due to a shortage of services committee members, said Noah Kane, ASG services vice president.

The Weinberg junior, who is spearheading the project, said the content for the general student handbook and the structure of the website are “essentially done.” In addition to the handbook, the services committee plans to release guides to major global cities for students studying abroad. Kane said the city guides are mostly unfinished.

Kane described the online handbooks as “by students, for students.” They are based on information from surveys and student interviews. Kane said the committee is currently trying to streamline its process of gathering student input for the manuals.

“The main issue with releasing the guide on time has been collecting survey responses,” he said. “We’re trying to come up with a more efficient way to do that.”
