A majority vote was in favor of the appointed judges: Sara Bergamini and Logan Rutt. As well as a majority vote in favor of the cabinet appointees: Mason Yaskovic named athletics and intramural liaison and Anna Grimm named Greek life liaison.

There are also new ideas that have been raised during the senate meeting which directly follows the general assembly. Some of these new ideas included an additional explanation of the solar tables. These charts help with the School Sustainability Rating and Evaluation System (STARS) which refers to the sustainability of the Florida Tech campus as a whole. Other ideas that were presented and discussed at the Senate meeting were the possible implementation of reusable cups, sponsored by SGA, which could potentially be used at Starbucks in Clemente and possibly even at Einstein in the SUB. Another step toward Florida Tech’s sustainability is setting up more water bottle stations around campus.
