Senate Update!

For those who are not familiar with Senate, the SGA Senate is the legislative branch of SGA.  Its purpose is to act as a liaison between students and the administration.  It’s role is to work on policies that are pertinent to the Student Body and SGA.  Some of the things the Senate will typically work on are approving new SGA clubs and organizations and it will work on addressing different areas of concern important to the student body.

The voting members of SGA include the Executive Vice President, the Executive Secretary, the Executive Treasurer, the President and Vice President of each class committee, two commuter senators, each residence hall senator, and the Executive President in the case of a tie.  The SGA Executive President, Diversity Chair, Programming Chair, and Finance Chair sit on the Senate as non-voting members.

Feel free to look under the Senate section of the SGA blog to see all the different members who sit on Senate this year! (

The Senate has had three meeting so far this year, where we came up with focus groups to start off the year with.  Then we decided to dedicate every other Senate meeting to having time for focus groups to meet in place of our regular senate meetings.

Here are the Senate focus groups and their members so far:

Commuter Life:  Brett Gammon, Jeff Santos, & Jamey Breen

Environmental Issues:  Lindsey Beauregard & Austin Alfredson

Parking:  Jackson Reilly & Amanda Carlino

Operational Hours:  Billy O’Donnell & Molly Bannister

Space Improvements:  Nick Culbert, Jamie McDermott, & Mike Smith

* If you have any ideas for new focus groups, please feel free to submit your idea under the “suggestions” tab!


In addition, to focus groups, Senate is working on bringing in speakers from different departments and in the administration to address the Senate.

Our next Senate meeting will be Monday, October 15th at 11:30 AM in the Cleary Dining room.  All students are welcome to attend! It’s a great way to see what is going on in SGA and to see the different issues the SGA and Senate are working on.

Hope to see you there!

SGA Retreat 2012

This past weekend the Student Government Association held it’s annual retreat!

This year the retreat was a little bit different than usual since it was held on campus, but it was a great way to have SGA members learn about leadership where they will be actually leading.

The retreat was a great way for the members of SGA to interact with each other socially and engage in group bonding activities.  On Friday, everyone went to an SGA event in the Hill with poetry slam artist, George Watsky.  The event enabled SGA members to show their support for another SGA sponsored activity and to see how an SGA event is run.

Other things we accomplished at the retreat included positional training so that everyone could get a better understanding of their roles and responsibilities in SGA. Plus, everyone went through “true colors” leadership training with Jim!

Last, everyone at the retreat participated in a mock town hall where we discussed issues and ideas for the upcoming year.  From the town hall we came up with ideas that will be addressed in focus groups in SGA Senate.

Overall, the SGA retreat was both a fun and productive weekend for everyone.  Everyone is really excited for the upcoming year in SGA and ready to make a difference on campus!


“Find Your Wingman” Activity!
