Welcome back to school! 

As the new semester kicks off, I would like to share some of the accomplishments from last semester and fill you in on where we’re headed this semester.

The fall semester was largely a transition period as we tried to maintain all that SGA has been without the same resources while simultaneously redefining and reconstructing what SGA will be. Some of the highlights from the fall semester included hosting football tailgates, the townhall, and working on the visitation and food survey results. As some of you may have enjoyed, we kicked off the beginning of the season by hosting three tailgates to boost athletic attendance. We’re thankful our efforts were joined by a successful season of the Gyrene football team! We continued the semester by conducting a intervisitation and food survey where we received almost 600 responses. As SGA becomes more of a lobbyist based entity, surveys will serve as a vital role in factually representing the wants of students. We now more then ever have a capability of expressing your wants to the university through tangible survey data (that carries substantial weight in the decision making process).” With that said, thank you for taking the survey! Administration is currently looking into the logistics of expanding visitation hours. In regards to the food portion of the survey, the cafeteria has worked with us to make small changes like the panini press. If you really liked Chick-fil-a, some of you attended the SGA Town Hall in December. Some great ideas came out of that which we are using them to shape the next semester. Among those ideas was one to expand the hours of the student hub. If you did not know by now, the hub is now open 24/7!

These are just a few ways your participation in SGA has changed the school! We thank you for letting us serve you!
