Austin Osborn, SGA vice president, began Wednesday’s meeting by briefing the members over the importance of the recent student fee referendum.
The referendum, which was put on students’ GUS accounts on Wednesday, is aiming to collect statistics on whether students are in favor of the proposed student fee increase that would assist the funding of the “master plan” campus renovation project.
“It’s vital that we spread the word to our constituents that this referendum is up and running,” Osborn said. “The more students who know, the better.”
Emily Smith, Big Event coordinator, also informed SGA members about the annual community outreach. According to Smith, more than 800 students have already signed up for the Big Event.
Sen. Thomas Gregory updated the members on the progress of SGA election info sessions. Gregory says there has been a considerable turnout for the two sessions that have taken place. Gregory says 20 students attended the sessions.
Jeanine Kunshek presented “Bill 11-11,” which would make it mandatory for SGA senators to maintain at least a 2.25 cumulative GPA.
“I know a good majority of us are exceptional students,” Kunshek said. “However this is more of a marker for future senators who don’t have a sufficient GPA. Especially with the opening of more Senate positions next year, I think this bill would help maintain our overall GPA.”
Peter Kipp, SGA treasurer, says allocation and student fee resolutions will be on the table for SGA in the coming weeks.
