SGA Spring Town Hall
On Tuesday, April 2nd SGA held its Spring Town Hall where representatives from different offices around campus addressed the questions and concerns of students. This year SGA decided to incorporate social media as another way for students to ask their questions during the Town Hall. Students were able to tweet at SGA’s twitter account @Stonehill_SGA and use the hashtag #SGATownHall2013. In addition, the SGA Executive Board kept a suggestions box in the cafe for students to write down questions beforehand and then used those questions as a starting point for issues during the Town Hall.
The Town Hall started off with updates from SGA, focus groups, the strategic planning committee, and the Grab the Green Initiative. We also heard a presentation on sustainability efforts that are currently taking place at Stonehill.
Some issues that came up at the Town Hall included water pressure in the residence halls, parking and transportation stipends for internships, the recent thefts in the library, merit aid scholarships, and more. One very interesting conclusion that came from the Town Hall was that it is illegal to kayak on Ames Pond.
Below is a link to the google doc of the mintues taken at the Town Hall if you are interested in a more detailed summary of the Town Hall:
If you have any questions or concerns about issues raised at the Town Hall or just in general, feel free to contact any SGA Executive Board member or stop by the SGA Office downstairs in the Commons.
