The rules and judiciary committee of Student Congress considered a bill Tuesday that would divide South Campus representation into two separate districts.
The bill, proposed by Paige Comparato, vice chairwoman of the committee, was brought forth in an effort to make Student Congress more representative of its South Campus constituents.
“If you think about the South Campus population, it’s mostly freshmen,” said Comparato, adding that the only freshman member of Student Congress lives in Granville Towers.
Currently, South Campus has six representatives, who are dispersed among Morrison, Hardin, and Craige North Residence Halls.
Despite the fact that South Campus is populated predominantly by freshmen, there are no freshman representatives in the current South Campus district, she said.
