    Montero, vice chancellor of student affairs.
  • Internal Vice President Sabrina Zeigler said her office
    hosted the Student Group Vendor Fair this week. She added council members are invited to the All-USAC Banquet at Pauley Pavilion later this week.
  • External Vice President Rafi Sands said he and Siegel attended the State of California Budget Revise, where the legislature discussed plans to increase in-state enrollment

    reactionary, decisions. He said he will fly out later this week to Washington, D.C., to meet with former External Vice President Zach Helder’s staff.
