Now under new leadership, SGA is beginning to make some changes around campus.
Last year, SGA President Becca Peach ran her campaign with a focus on environmental awareness. SGA has taken steps this semester to make AU’s campus more eco-friendly.
“We are looking at grants from companies like Coca-Cola and a grant from the state of Indiana that we could apply for for funding to increase recycling on campus,” read an SGA press release. “We also renewed SGA’s commitment to installing environmentally friendly LED lights across campus.”
With a focus on mental health, SGA has been preparing for National Suicide Prevention Month. SGA is working on a partnership between Spiritual Life and Counseling Services in the hopes of encouraging students to get plugged into support groups.
A few other items on SGA’s agenda are Inclusivity Nights and weight room improvements.
SGA is also looking for students interested in joining the Senate. Senate Chair Daniel Gaines recently sent an email to the student body opening the door for applications.
“Daniel and the rest of SGA are so excited to offer this opportunity for voices from all across campus to be heard,” said SGA in a press release. “Senators have the opportunity to meet weekly with members of the administration and with each other to implement real change on campus. We sincerely hope students will seek out this unique opportunity to serve the AU community.”
