The Student Government Association meets every Wednesday at 3:05 p.m. in Bellin A and B in the Student Center.
- Alexa Pagnani, the SGA university assistant, resigned, having given a tearful goodbye at last week’s meeting.
- Senator Jared Sales resigned from his position in the SGA and Kiba Helmbracht will take his place as one of the newly elected resident senators.
- $100,000 has been set aside for the spring concert and senior trip – CAN requested $70,000 for the spring concert and $30,000 for the senior trip.
- NSLDC applications can be picked up in the SALD office and are due on Oct. 13 at 5 p.m.
- The New York Times will no longer be distributed on campus to students. It may take up to two weeks for the cancellation to be put into affect.
- The CCSU athletic budget has been raised by $2,000,000, totaling the budget to be around $15,000,000 this year.
- Instead of starting with a set budget for each club on campus, a “zero-based budget” may be in order for CCSU clubs, meaning that clubs will begin their budget with zero dollars, and ask for what they need over time.
- The SGA says it is prepared to fund the trips some CCSU sports clubs will take if they qualify for nationals.
- The SGA is considering collaborating with the Autism Club in order to put on a “five days of kindness” event, which would likely take place at the end of the Fall 2017 semester. More information is to come.
- Anyone interested in volunteering for this year’s homecoming events should contact the SGA Public Affairs chair.
