Student Government welcomes campus opinion

by SGA President Nick Lang

After being involved with the Student Government Association for three years now, I cannot stress enough how important it is that students tell their SGA representatives what they want to see on their campus.

As your SGA president, it is my job to protect and defend the rights and responsibilities of the university and its students. With that being said, your SGA representatives and I are actively seeking feedback from the students to help guide us to make educated decisions to ensure that you have the best college experience possible.

To ensure we hear your feedback, we have established multiple ways for you to contact us with your opinion:

  • Email [email protected]
  • Leave a comment in the comment box at una.edu/sga.
  • Go to an SGA officer’s office hours to speak to them in person. Their hours are posted on the SGA office door.
  • Talk to any SGA representative that you may see or know on campus.

I continue to stress the importance of giving SGA your feedback because we are working on some important initiatives that could ultimately affect your college experience.

This semester, we have been tasked to give the student’s opinion on whether or not the campus should be smoke and tobacco-free. The Student Welfare Committee of the SGA Senate is working diligently right now to draft a resolution that would give the students’ voice to the university’s faculty, staff and administration. The administration will take this into consideration when making the decision on possibly changing the current smoke and tobacco policy.

It is the goal of SGA to work every day to earn students’ trust and to serve with the utmost integrity. We not only want your feedback and concerns, we need them. As the semester comes to a close, I can assure you that your SGA representatives are working hard to make this year a special one.
