The Student Government Association (SGA) will hold a meet and greet for SGA members running for executive office positions for the 2017 to 2018 school year 5 p.m. April 13 in Wiekamp Hall Room 1190.
Following the meet and greet will be the debate starting at 6:30 p.m. and will run until 8 p.m. where candidates will address the issues they plan to tackle.
Executive positions include SGA president, vice president, secretary and treasurer. There are four candidates running for president, one candidate running for vice president, two candidates running for treasurer and one candidate running for secretary.
The SGA is responsible for allocating funds granted to student organizations, departments and clubs through the student activity fee.
“This is an opportunity for students to express their concerns to the candidates,” said Stephen Salisbury, the current SGA president.
Students will have the opportunity to vote in the upcoming SGA election.
Some issues that Salisbury campaigned on during his run for SGA president were campus printing, food and dining services, and the accessibility to a 24-hour study space, which is supposed to be available to students, hopefully, sometime in the fall, said Salisbury.
The Student Government Association is an all student organization made up of undergraduate and graduate students who represent the student body.
