This year, the 2018-2019 Ave Maria SGA is working to ensure that Ave Maria’s student body will not only enjoy their time at Ave Maria through various events and projects, but also be a transparent representation for the students and work towards ongoing unification in the on-campus culture. This month, committee leaders provide insight into the goals that SGA has for this semester, and are excited to share upcoming plans for Ave Maria.
Development Committee Chair
With the help of student feedback, we are here to address any concerns or issues and make changes so that everyone can be proud to be a part of the Ave Maria University community.
Specifically, we are working with the environmental club to implement recycling on campus. In addition we are focused on making small changes in the cafeteria to create more options so that students enjoy eating in the cafeteria. Also, we look forward to students attending athletic events and are planning tailgates to encourage the student body to support the Gyrenes. Finally, we will begin working to get visitation extended.
Our Committee appreciates the enthusiasm and passion of the students at AMU. Any feedback about what we are doing or what a student would prefer us to do is always welcome. Likewise, we would like to thank the student body for their support as we work on their behalf to improve the AMU experience!
Outreach Committee Chair
The goal for the Student Outreach Committee is to plan and host events that will extend the culture of positivity on campus. Also, we want to establish an open feedback system so that we can adjust the events to meet the demand of the students.
We are very excited to be planning numerous opportunities for the students that will be taking place throughout the school year! Our next big event will be Ave’s Got Talent on November 1st at 9:00pm in the Prince auditorium. We are also hosting Ave’s first ever Turkey Trot on November 17th (time and location tbd), where we will also be having a food drive for the less fortunate in Immokalee. Along with those we will be hosting festivals for feast days, Dunkin Mondays, and much more!
The student body at Ave Maria could not be easier to work for. Everyone is very kind and honest with feedback, come to events with positivity, and are always enthusiastic about making Ave more fun!
Communication Committee Chair
We hope to communicate news, events, surveys & more through our website and social media platforms. We want the Council to maintain transparency, and effectively share information between the students and SGA.
Currently, we’re working on producing a video to introduce the new council, and helping to plan Ave’s Got Talent. We’re also going to be conducting a survey to get feedback on how students feel about inter-visitation and the status of common rooms. Also, look out for our weekly "Ave Spotlights” showcasing students, clubs, and AMU staff!
