On Wednesday, March 8, the Student Government Association (SGA) hosted their semesterly President and Provost Forum in Hermann Hall, where students and faculty were invited to bring questions and comments to address issues and improvements at Illinois Tech. To start the event, SGA President Hamze Leo Sukkar introduced President Alan Cramb and Provost Frances Bronet, and gave guidelines to make the event run smoothly and efficiently such as a ten minute limit to questions and discussions.
International Women’s Day is thought to be a time when women of diverse backgrounds can come together to celebrate the great advances that women have made over the course of human history. For many like Illinois Tech senior Saja Hamayel, a digital humanities student, it can often be a time of great confusion and suspense.
The Student Government Association (SGA) Senate meets biweekly on Wednesdays, with the latest senate hearing held on Wednesday, March 22. Ordinarily, SGA senate hearings are led by Vice President Sonia Kamdar; however, both Kamdar and SGA President Hamze “Leo” Sukkar were unable to make this particular hearing, and therefore SGA Secretary William Gordon led the meeting in their stead.
Have you noticed your peers acting distant? Have they been disappearing at odd hours of the night with no explanation of where they’ve been and a crazed look in their eyes?

If you live in the residence halls or Greek housing here at Illinois Tech, you probably think you know the ropes by now. If you commute to school, you’ve probably still visited one of our residential buildings with friends at one point or another. Still, there are some little things that you may not notice from day to day, and some bigger things that THE SHADOW BOARD OF TRUSTEES IS HIDING FROM YOU.
Explorative, deep, strategic. In the context of games, did those words make you think of a video game? If so, you have been living a lie, perhaps full of pretty screens, but what is real life besides a large, metaphorical television screen anyway? To the gamer in you, I say take out a napkin and a pen so that you can play a real game: Tic Tac Toe. You may be about to tell me to go fish for a new mentality on what constitutes a real game, but hear me out on this. As such, here is a review you never asked for but assuredly will change your mind on gaming.
It was recently reported that the delay in the construction of the new academic building on campus was due to the harsh weather in Chicago during the winter months. This has been the official reason given by the school and city alike, but the delay was truly caused by gophers. These are not your run of the mill gophers, however, as many of them have apparently grown massive in size and have begun to surface due to the ongoing work in and around their homes in Morton Park.
