Service to honor sophomore who fought cancer Members of the Northeastern community are invited to attend a memorial service on Centennial Commons today for Jonathan Angelone, a sophomore international business major who died Nov. 13 following a battle with cancer. “He was always worried about everyone else,” his cousin, Katie Phillips, told the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle at the First Annual Turkey Bowl, a round-robin flag football tournament held at Brighton High School in upstate New York in honor of Angelone. The tournament served as a fundraiser for the “Just Be Aware” Johnathan B. Angelone Foundation, a cancer-fighting organization that encourages early detection of the illness in youths. Twenty-eight teams competed in the tournament, each paying $82, in honor of Angelone’s high school football jersey number, the newspaper reported Sunday. During his time at Northeastern, Angelone was a member of the a cappella group DownBeats. For more information about today’s service, which begins at noon, contact the Office for Student Affairs at (617) 373-4384.

SGA amends bylaws at first joint senate of semester On Monday Nov. 20 the Student Government Association (SGA) held its first joint senate meeting of the fall semester. Of the 10 bylaw amendments on the agenda, only nine were discussed. The topic that received the most debate was an amendment proposed by Senator Andrew Alperin, who was not present at the meeting causing Senator Michael Benson to present the proposal. The amendment proposed to double the number of weeks of Senatorial status an executive board candidate must have in order to run. The new version requires 30 weeks for vice presidential candidates and 50 weeks for presidential candidates. The issue stirred much debate. Senators were concerned whether this new version of the amendment would limit students who join the association their middler or junior year from running for an executive position. This amendment was not voted upon as the senate did not meet quorum. The issue will be re-discussed at the next joint senate. Other amendments passed concerned the senators’ required number of advocacy hours, unexcused absences at meetings, legislation availability and the Association’s advisor. Parliamentarian Michael DeRamo also gave a presentation on direct elections providing the exact dates of nominations, campaigning and voting. The student body will vote in the first week of April and the results will be announced at a joint senate meeting on April 12.
