In this week’s Student Government Association (SGA) meeting, it was announced that Elwood’s Cabinet, Longwood’s student food pantry, is open two days a week.
Catherine Swinsky, SGA executive vice president said, “Elwood’s Cabinet is open on Mondays and Thursdays from six to eight now, so hopefully we will get some students who have a Monday class but not a Thursday class that night and they’ll be able to come in those hours.”
VA21/SCHEV (State Council of Higher Education for Virginia) State Representative Amelia Graves said there will be rides to the voting polls on Tuesday, November 5 for students. The rides will start at 6 a.m. when the polls open and will conclude around 7 p.m. once students are finished voting.
In Virtual Open Forum, concerns about how religious groups on campus can get funding were brought to the Senate’s attention. Treasurer Samuel Torpy said if there are any questions or concerns about this funding, students can come to his office hours to discuss and read the bylaws.
In the President's Report, Haleigh Pannell urged students to always use crosswalks and to be safe when crossing streets, per a complaint from a Farmville business owner.
She said, “Please be careful when you’re crossing the street, don’t just cross the street randomly without checking because you never know how you’re going to affect the driver.”
The next SGA meeting will take place on Tuesday, October 22 at 3:45 p.m. inside of the R.R. Moton Museum in Farmville.
