The Student Government Association met last night to discuss multiple topics including a bylaw revision and an academic guideline.
In other actions, senators voted on two proposals presented the previous week. The first proposal removes the missions line item from the SGA budget due to confusion about the language in the bylaw. The second proposal nixes the previously held 60 percent attendance SGA membership rule.
Senators also held an extensive discussion concerning the new academic guideline which urges faculty to allow a course to survive only if a minimum of 15 students are enrolled. As many students verbalized concern about the guideline, SGA executives guided a discussion with the ultimate goal of meeting with Chief Academic Officer Scott LaMascus.
President Tyler Clark presented a bylaw revision, stating, “Any funds left over in the Homecoming budget two weeks after homecoming day will go directly to the misc. line item.” SGA attendees will vote on the proposal next week.
The Spring Sing philanthropy director, Paige Arter, asked attendees to consider helping facilitate the philanthropy project next week. The money will go to the nonprofit organization Hearts for Hearing.
Due to the snow day this past Tuesday, the SGA town hall will take place on another date in the near future.
The SGA will provide $1 tickets to students who want to see the critically-acclaimed film “On the Basis of Sex” this Saturday, Feb. 23, at 8 p.m.
Campaign season will start soon as filing for SGA executive elections will begin Feb. 25.
The SGA will not meet next Wednesday.
