Though Notre Dame is located in Indiana, it caters to a national population with students from many different states. At Notre Dame, student-run state clubs perform the function of bringing together students from their home areas. According to SAO, there are clubs representing nine states: California Club, Connecticut Club, Hawaii Club, Louisiana Club, Minnesota Club, Montana Club, New Jersey Club, New York Club and Texas Club. Each state’s club has a slightly different focus, from helping arrange transportation at breaks to organizing events reflecting their state’s culture.Junior Danny McMaster, vice president of the New Jersey Club, said his club’s main purpose is serving as a link between students, alumni and New Jersey, as well as social opportunities.“We organize rides back, both by organizing a major bus back … [and] in coordination with some of the Philadelphia [alumni] clubs,” McMaster said. “We are the liaisons between New Jersey students on campus and the four New Jersey [alumni] clubs. … We’re just basically a social club where, you know, all the New Jersey kids can get to know each other, get some cool T-shirts, get some good pizza and good breakfast sandwiches.” Junior Rosie Crisman, co-president of California Club, said her club’s major focus is helping Notre Dame students network with professionals in California. She said a large number of California Club members are not actually California natives.“We help students connect to professionals in California, including Notre Dame alumni and recruiters,” she said. “If I had to guess, around 25 percent of our club is not from California.”Senior Iliana Contreras, president of Texas Club, described her club’s mission as both connecting students to alumni networks and helping Texans adjust to life in South Bend.“Alumni networks within the Texas Club are huge. We have the Alumni Barbecue in the spring where actual alumni from Texas come and they host a huge barbecue for all of our students, be [they] from Texas or not,” Contreras said. “We also want [Texas Club] to be a safe haven for people on campus; we recognize that moving to South Bend, Indiana, from any place in Texas … [puts students in] an entirely different culture, environment and weather. We want to make sure that people know where to buy the right jackets, get the right snow boots. … Texas Club is supposed to be a place where you can come and you can combine your two homes: your love of Texas and your love of Notre Dame.”These clubs allow for students to express their love of their home state, even while so far away from home. McMaster said, in his experience, state clubs build up community among the members of their state, and that those involved enjoy their work.“One of the biggest draws for us is that New Jersey is one of the biggest states at Notre Dame, especially considering how far away it is,” McMaster said. “There’s just a matter of state pride … [because] a lot of people rag on our state. Everyone who’s from it really loves it and we all have a good time with it.”Tags: California, Geographic Diversity, New Jersey, State Clubs, Texas
Español, Press Release, Voting & Elections El Gobernador Tom Wolf firmó el proyecto de ley 2502 de la Cámara de Representantes, ahora Ley 35 de 2020, que requiere que el Departamento de Estado publique un informe sobre las elecciones primarias del 2 de junio de 2020. El informe ayudará a identificar todo cambio necesario en el Código Electoral de Pennsylvania antes de las elecciones generales de noviembre.“A pesar de la pandemia, Pennsylvania tuvo una elección primaria segura y exitosa, pero siempre se pueden hacer mejoras”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “Gracias a la histórica reforma electoral del año pasado, los votantes pudieron utilizar una nueva votación por correo y usar nuevas máquinas de votación. Ahora debemos prepararnos para las elecciones presidenciales y para la gran concurrencia que se espera en noviembre. Este informe ayudará a identificar las maneras de mejorar nuestro proceso electoral”.El informe incluirá una serie de puntos de información para cada condado en relación con las reformas de la Ley 77 de 2019 y la Ley 12 de 2020, que incluyen el número de votos por correo que se solicitaron y se recibieron, el número de nuevos registros de votantes que se recibieron y a qué hora cada condado comenzó a realizar el sondeo previo y el recuento de los votos y de los votos en ausencia y por correo.La elección primaria fue la primera vez que los residentes de Pennsylvania pudieron emitir el voto por correo sin tener que dar una explicación. Se emitieron casi 1.5 millones de votos por correo o en ausencia, 17 veces el número que votó en ausencia en las primarias de 2016, cuando se emitieron aproximadamente 84,000 votos en ausencia.Para ayudar a los condados ante la situación del aumento de los votos enviados por correo y para reducir las demoras en informar los resultados de las elecciones, el departamento apoya un cambio legislativo que propone permitir que los condados comiencen a procesar las boletas enviadas por correo en las semanas previas al día de las elecciones. Según la ley actual, los condados no pueden comenzar a realizar un sondeo previo de estas boletas hasta las 7 a.m. del día de las elecciones.Los últimos 22 condados también debutaron con nuevos sistemas de votación en las primarias, completando una iniciativa de dos años para implementar los sistemas de votación de última generación en los 67 condados.View this information in English.

“Kindly accept my resignation as Gor Mahia FC head coach effective today, the sixth day of August 2019. As you are aware, the decision has been forced on me by the personal challenges I am facing here in Europe,” Oktay said in a letter addressed to rachier.He added; “I wish to thank you and the entire club, including the fans for the opportunity you accorded me to manage this great club. I also wish you guys all the best in your forthcoming assignments.”The tactician had asked for permission from the club to return to his home in England to sort out long standing personal issues, but seemingly they have taken more time to be solved.Rachier on Monday evening told Capital Sport that he was aware of the issues and that he did not think Oktay was trying to engineer a move away from the club, barely six months after joining and leading them to the quarter finals of the Confederations Cup for the first time ever.Gor Mahia head coach Hassan Oktay chats with his assistant Zedekiah Otieno during a training session at teh Uhuru Stadium in Dar es Salaam on January 22, 2018.
