Dear Faculty, Staff, and Students,

Southwestern Student Government Association hopes you all had a great Thanksgiving Break and have come back refreshed for these next two weeks! November has been a very busy month and the holds true for your Student Government representatives.

Earlier this month, Student Government Association partnered with the Office of Student Life to put on a Bystander Training. This event was open to all students and touched on many different topics including sexual assault/ bystander training, racism, and gender discrimination. If you were able to attend this event and have any feedback regarding it, please feel free to talk to a SGA member; we would love to hear your feedback!

Student Government Association also held our second Student Body Forum of the year on the topic of Student Health. We had representatives from Health Services, Counseling, and Religious Life come talk about student concerns that had been raised, changes that had occurred over the summer, and the services that they offer. They went over the new insurance plans, changes in health services, quick stress relief tips, and worship times for students. If you missed the forum and would like to learn more, feel free to talk to a SGA representative as well as contacting any represented group about their individual services.

Make sure to keep a look out on our Facebook and Twitter pages for updates regarding events for the upcoming semester! Also, all general assembly meetings are open to the public; they are every third Tuesday at 7pm in the Prothro Room in the Library!
