One of the many duties of student government is to appoint student representatives to committees of importance to the student body. Each college has a committee that is responsible for reviewing students’ complaints about "unfair" grading in particular classes, and the ASI judicial branch is tasked with representing students on these committees.

As the semester kicks into gear, LBSU and ASI have good news for undocumented students.
