ASG President Austin Young announced the forthcoming production of Northwestern’s very own Cash Cab, an NU take on the popular Discovery Channel game show, during a rare under-an-hour Senate session Wednesday night. The Northwestern model of Cash Cab will pay trivia-savvy SafeRide passengers cash for answering surprise NU-centric pop quiz questions. The program remains in the planning stages as Young and his team search for funds.
Young also announced a the formation of a Student Summit, which he envisions as a UN-type gathering of student delegations from various campus groups, which will pass a list of priorities to be presented to Student Affairs. Young says an opportunity like this is particularly relevant at a time when Student Affairs is writing its own strategic plan. A Student Summit, Young said, will present a “declaration of sentiments” of students’ most pressing priorities.
The announcements came during a smoothly moderated and unusually short Senate session, during which senators preoccupied themselves mainly with a request of $300 for extra computer chargers to be available via rental to students at the library’s circulation desk. Senators will vote on the proposal at next week’s session.
