Pardon Our Dust
“Pardon our dust”
Welcome back to campus Skyhawks! SGA is extremely excited for the brand new year ahead. We have recently been relocated to room A111 in the commons, which is across from our prior location. The rooms which previously were the SGA Executive Finance Chair and Treasurer offices are now the locations for the Stonehill radio station, WSHL 91.3. We are still in the process of organizing and decorating the new SGA office so pardon the mess! Feel free to stop by to say hi, ask us questions, or share your ideas with us anytime!
We already have multiple activities planned for the upcoming weeks. We hope to see you all attending the various events occurring throughout the Stonehill community including:
- Brother Mike’s Concert Series: Brett Young
- Activity Fair
- Think Fast Game Show
- Newport Beach Trip
SGA is also launching the It’s on US Campaign which is an awareness campaign to help put an end to sexual assault on college campuses. Those who sign the pledge of this campaign make a personal commitment to step off the sidelines and be part of the solution to campus sexual assault. Many colleges have adopted this campaign and the organization provides a lot of support and materials for them to do so. Please be on the look-out for events supporting this campaign! You can learn more about this campaign and view a clip of our promotional video below.
