The Student Government Association’s meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 28 discussed new collaborations with Armstrong’s student government, new additions to the Henderson Library and much more.
New Student Advisory Council
The meeting began with a speech from SGA President Dylan John who talked about the upcoming new Student Advisory Council convention that will be held March 5 through the 7.
During the convention both SGA members from Armstrong campus and the Statesboro campus will meet at each other’s respective campus. Doing this gives SGA members a chance to see what is going on on all GS campuses.
Additions to Henderson Library
SGA Vice President of Academic Affairs, Grandson Martin, talked about what’s new in the Henderson Library including a new scanner and Maker Space on the second floor.
Martin also spoke about replacing the computers in the library as the devices come to the end of their lifespan. The computers will only be replaced if the new budget is approved. The textbook task force is in the process of being formed to help make textbooks more available for students.
Why Atlanta campaign
Amazon is still trying to consider where to put their new headquarter and Atlanta, Georgia is still in the running.
At the meeting the discussion of the new Amazon headquarters was brought up along with what we as students can do to help.
A statewide initiative has been started called Why Atlanta. Why Atlanta is a video contest for college students to state why Amazon should come to Atlanta. In the end five videos from students will be submitted to Amazon.
Students interested in becoming a student senator were able to participate in the Senate Swap hosted by current student senators.
The event started with a mock proposal on a topic and unmoderated congress meeting to give students the experience of being a student senator.
The next SGA meeting will be held next Wednesday, March 7 at 6:30 p.m. in the Russell Union Ballroom.
