SGA Wrap Up: November 29, 2016

The Student Government Association (SGA) meeting held on November 29 focused heavily on information regarding the construction of Emmanuel College’s New Julie residence hall.

The meeting began with the 1804 Society giving a presentation about what they do as an organization.

In their first year, new members attend workshops to improve their skills as student leaders within a community. The group also hosts a Supper with the Sister’s event to learn more about the Sisters of Notre Dame.

1804 values the relationships built on campus, as well as the ones formed within their own group.

Next up was a major event request. This week Habitat for Humanity was present to request $9,729.20 for their 2017 Spring Break Trip to Michigan.

The amount was approved in full.

Construction updates were next. Sister Anne, along with members of the construction team were present for the meeting. Courtney Howard, who is in charge of the New Resident Hall Social Media, was also there.

There are currently air quality monitors set up that will go off if there are any changes in the quality of air or odor surrounding the construction.

The first of four concrete pours was set to begin on November 30 however it has been postponed for an unknown reason. It is not known when the pour will be rescheduled for. These pours will take place over the next four months.

Their goal is to have the crane constructed before finals, and when they are working in their off hours, the workers have the required permits to do so.

Next up in the meeting were the SGA’s updates to their Constitution.

The Executive Board also proposed a new position, Executive Director of Public Relations. This would be an appointed position and would not go into effect until the start of next semester.

The discussion was postponed until next meeting to let the Senate have time to review the changes.
