The seats of Gibson Hall senator, Court Street Hall senator and commuter representative remain empty, as no students ran for the positions. A second election will take place to fill the vacant chairs.
The first meeting of the new SGA body will take place on Thursday, Sept. 15. Regular SGA meetings are held every Thursday at 12:30 in Thaw 216 and are open to everyone. All students, faculty, staff and other interested community members are invited to attend these meetings and voice their opinions or just sit in and listen to the issues and bills being discussed.
The SGA is working to make student involvement and communication a priority this year. Student Government President Devan Reynolds said: “We need to let ourselves really hear what it is that students want and then do everything in our power to make those things happen. Complex or simple, salient or not, we have been elected to address student issues, and that is what we will do.”
For any students wishing to provide feedback, there is always a suggestion box available in the student activities office.
