The Associated Students of Central Washington University Board of Directors met for the first time on Monday in the SURC Pit among a crowd of over 15 students, emphasizing a push toward freshmen registering to vote and updating the school mascot’s uniform.

Cassie DuBore, vice president for legislative affairs, said that 130 students registered to vote during freshman move-in day alone.

“We had a goat with us, his name was Elston, our Vote Goat, and that was a great way to attract students to come hang out, update their mailing address and register to vote,” DuBore said.


There was also discussion about updating Wellington’s uniform. The uniform, said vice president for student life and facilities Rob Lane, is in “really poor condition” and was not sure when it was last replaced.

“I’m going to talk to athletics and see what we can do, how we can partner it and how we can afford it.” Lane said, also adding that he would like to have it finalized this quarter.

President Yosef Gamble asked to approve a motion to allot $1100 out of the general budget to purchase jackets for the ASCWU BOD. These jackets will be purchased from the Wildcat Shop in order to “support the university” according to Gamble.

Other topics discussed during the half-hour meeting were the club fair, student committee appointments and improving the general scholarship application.


The next meeting will be held next Monday, Oct. 6 in the SURC Pit at 4 p.m.
