In this week’s Student Government Association (SGA) meeting, the senate received a presentation on how to use 25live, and a representative from the Health Center gave updates.

In Special Orders of the Day, Event Manager Ashley Long and Conference Specialist Mallory Minniear gave a presentation on how to use 25live, the event scheduling program for the university. 

They explained that you can create an event at least four days in advance, and up to 365 days from the scheduling date. Space is reserved on a first come, first serve basis, and the event must be approved prior to it happening. Students who want to schedule an event can go to 25live.collegenet.com.

He said that cases have been low, but they have seen increased incidences in strep as of late.
