The Shippensburg Student Government Association (SGA) held its first public meeting of the academic year in the ShipRec this past Thursday.
Riley Brown, SGA president, opened the meeting with remarks celebrating the start of a school year far closer to normal than what the campus community endured last year.
“We are excited to begin the year where the student experience is back. Student activities and groups are back, academic opportunities await...the ability to connect with old friends and make new ones is back,” Brown said.
Brown explained that SGA will hold its meetings in different locations across campus throughout the year to increase engagement and “meet students where they are at.”
Chase Slenker, vice president of finance, presented information about the mandatory budget training for student groups. Training sessions will be Nov. 1 though Nov. 5 in CUB 226. Two student leaders from every SGA-funded student organization and one representative from each SGA-funded department are required to attend. An email sent on Sept. 12 communicated further information about the training.
Additionally, the Food Service Committee shared that the university’s dining services are “very much in need of student workers” and that the newly opened campus Chick-Fil-A is unable to open for breakfast until they hire more employees.
