Virtual SGA Oct 6

The Student Government Association meets virtually over Zoom to discuss updates to the library and a new VA21 event.

In this week’s Student Government Association (SGA) meeting, Dean Roberts talked to the senate about updates to Greenwood Library and VA21 announced an event. 

In Special Orders of the Day, Vice President Payten Bovat officiated the proceedings as PRIDE Representative Matt Rowlett took the oath. 

The student will now assume their role after being sworn in and will begin their position effective immediately.

Also in Special Orders of the Day, Dean of the Library Brent Roberts gave COVID-19 updates, which include contactless check-out, a rotating cleaning schedule, and the end of late fines.

Roberts added that the library is on amended hours, and students can go to for the full schedule and more information.

In New Business, SGA Executive Historian Cole Pillow and the senate voted in favor of making Fellowship of Christian Athletes an official club on campus. The club can now hold official meetings and events. 

In Announcements, VA21 Representative Amelia Graves announced that VA21 will be holding an event at 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 8 for students to learn what will be on the ballot. 

In the Vice President’s Report with Payten Bovat, she announced that the university has put microwaves and fridges in ARC for quarantined students to use for meals. There is also a request form for students to fill out to request special items from The Comma or the POD.

She added that the dining hall has brought back the pasta bar and will start adding stations as long as students are being smart and following guidelines.

The next SGA meeting will be on Tuesday, October 13 at 3:45 p.m. on Zoom.
