LGBTQ Senate Seat Rejected from on Vimeo.

Representation was a major issue during Tuesday’s Student Senate meeting.

Members of both SMU’s athletic and LGBTQ communities attended the meeting to show support for special interest seats in the legislature.

The legislation to create an LGBTQ seat failed to pass. While the bill received a majority of votes, it was unable to pass due to the necessary two-thirds requirements to create a senate seat. Harvey Luna, who wrote the legislation, has stated he will bring the issue back to the floor next year.

The athletic community has also assured senate that they will work to create a seat next year.

Football Slideshow: SMU v. TCU

For the Iron Skillet showdown, SMU and TCU brought their A-games to Ford Stadium.

SMU shot out the gates with the first touchdown of the game. Mustang momentum held through the first half, but TCU was quick to retaliate in the third quarter.

Although the final score resulted in a TCU win, 24-41, the Mustangs proved they could keep up with the #4 ranked team in the nation.

Pony fans and Horned Frogs filled the Ford and brought an energy unlike any seen this year – or even last season. Win or lose for the ‘Stangs, it was one of the biggest games of the year.
