Two Associated Student Government caucuses elected whips before the Senate meeting Wednesday night.

The Greek Caucus elected Communication senior Sarah Brock, and the RHA and RCB Caucus, representing the Residential Hall Association and the Residential College Board, elected Bienen sophomore Harrison Flagler.

This will be Brock’s second consecutive full term as Greek Caucus whip. Prior to serving two full terms, Brock was elected as Greek Caucus whip during her sophomore year after the then-whip left. This will be Flagler’s first term leading his caucus.

The Off-Campus Caucus will elect its own whip next week.

During the meeting, technology vice president Sheng Wu said the University has entered into negotiations with a major streaming service to replace NUTV.

“There is no replacement yet, although there are negotiations with one of the popular on-demand streaming services,” the McCormick senior said. “I can’t say more about that.”

Senators also heard a presentation by a new undergraduate student group, the Northwestern Science and Policy Action Network, requesting $50 from the ASG Project Pool to pay for food at an event it is holding. Senate will vote on the proposal next week.

Senate adjourned after half an hour in an unusually short meeting.
