Dear Faculty, Staff, and Students,
Just like that February is over! Your Student Government Association has been hard at work preparing events and working on new legislation!
First off, welcome to our new members! Earlier this month SGA held elections to fill the positions of Natural Science, Humanities, Social Science, New Paideia, Fine Arts, and First Year Representatives. For a complete list of Representatives, please see our website under the Student Government tab on the Student Activities page.
In addition to our elections, there is a new piece of legislation in the works! SEAK brought an idea to SGA regarding the sale and distribution of plastic water bottles on our campus. The new legislation would effectively ban all of those sales and distribution; with the goal of progressively making our campus more environment-friendly and promoting our push to be a sustainable campus. This legislation would affect the Cove, water bottle vending machines only, and university funding (organizations would not be allowed to use university funds for the purchasing of water bottles). SEAK has worked to earn grants to provide more water bottle refill stations, and instead of pirate bike shirts, there would be pirate bike reusable water bottles. If you have any questions regarding this legislation, please contact any SGA representative.
SGA has also been working on our annual Last S.T.R.A.W. event for this upcoming March. This is a week-long event from March 7th through the 11th, with event including self-defense training, a viewing of “The Hunting Ground”, and more! Make sure to mark it down on your calendars and check our Facebook page for updates on times and locations!
We hope you had an amazing month and are getting ready for an even better one! Spring break is almost here, you can do it!
Your Student Government Representatives
