Tonight’s student government meeting will give information about how to get more involved in service projects.

Associated Students of CSU is set to have two guest speakers at their weekly Senate meeting tonight who will provide more information about the community-oriented groups PRAXIS and SMARTRIDE.

Jake Blumberg, a junior technical journalism major, is set to speak about PRAXIS – “a new program that grants money for service projects,” said ASCSU vice president Sadie Conrad.

The program offers small grants to students who want to apply and work for a community action program.

Anna McConnell, an intern for SMARTRIDE, is set to discuss that program, which offers designated drivers free soft drinks and appetizers at bars and restaurants around Fort Collins.

ASCSU, along with Poudre Valley Health Center, founded SMARTRIDE in the ’90s.

“It is an event to help prevent drunk driving,” Conrad said.

The meeting is set to begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Senate Chambers of the Lory Student Center.
