In this week’s Student Government Association (SGA) meeting, the senate visited the R.R. Moton Museum, located at 900 Griffin Boulevard in town.
Cam Patterson, managing director for the Moton, came in to say a few words to the senate, encouraging the students to take a tour and learn more about the museum.
Patterson said, “You are in a spot that really helped our country work a little bit harder to achieve equality for all.”
VA21/SCHEV (State Council of Higher Education for Virginia) State Representative Amelia Graves noted that election day is on November 5, and there will be two vans to take students to-and-from the voting polls if they do not have a way of getting there themselves.
In the President’s Report, Haleigh Pannell encouraged the senate and students to use the virtual open forum option to their advantage. The link to the forum is on their website, Longwoodsga.com, and is a place to bring up concerns about the campus.
In the Vice President’s Report, Catherine Swinsky said the dining hall is working on getting iced coffee and they have received a new sandwich press, which can be used for all three meals a day. She added that Greens To Go now has pre-made salads available in order to make service go quicker and shorten the lines during peak hours in the day.
The next SGA meeting will take place on Tuesday, October 30 at 3:45 p.m. inside of the Wilson Chamber at the Upchurch University Center.
