USG news and notes: kiosk hours

Joe Anderson

USG member Joe Anderson is pushing for minimum wage increases for students.

Kiosk hours

Starting next semester, Undergraduate Student Government executive board members will be available to talk during weekly kiosk hours. Kiosk hours are designed for USG to hear questions, comments and concerns. It’s also a place where students can learn about and sign up for our upcoming events. Check out our website for the latest kiosk hours and locations.

Did you know?

While undocumented students are currently ineligible to receive various forms of financial aid, federal law does permit individual states to offer undocumented students eligibility for state financial aid.

In response, USG unanimously supports the Illinois Student Access Bill. This bill would allow undocumented students in Illinois to apply for scholarships at four-year public universities.

Member of the month

USG’s member of the month is Joe Anderson, a senior with a double major in political science and American history with a minor in gender and women’s studies.

Anderson is active on campus, working for the athletic department and serving almost four years on the UIC Model United Nations Team, as well as USG.

He will continue to fight for minimum wage for student workers until it is raised. For more information, email
