February

Radin, Radin, Radin!

If you missed the big concert, one of the major things SGA did, along with CAC, was bring Josh Radin to Lehman stage. It drew nearly 500 people for a fun evening of music. Big thanks to Doug Wandersee for his epic coordinating abilities. Also on the concert kick, we helped bring in Hadestown, a folk opera by Anais Mitchell, along with various other departments.

In our continuing efforts to boost school spirit, we’ve been throwing t-shirts at basketball and volleyball games, as well as a raffle at half time for free EMU gear for students (special thanks to Sarah Beck and Matt Dean). We also organized a food drive to benefit Patchwork Pantry—thanks to Peyton Erb for her leadership.

Last Tuesday was the Join a Club Party in Common Grounds, where the USO (Union of Student Organizations) created a space for clubs to get their word out and encourage students to join. We hope this spring gathering of clubs can be a annual event.

Other SGA happenings:

  • Helping Maplewood students move into the renovated Elmwood
  • Funding Peace Fellowship to the Intercollegiate Peace Conference, and Sustainable Food Initiative to the Food and Farming Conference at Laurelville, PA.
  • Working with Campus Life and EMU Security to respond to safety concerns on campus
  • Volunteering at the Calling and Career Day, shout out to Amy Springer and Jen Litwiller for making this event happen

SGA is also beginning to work with a Strategic Plan as we dream and vision for how the SGA could look in the future. And as always, our meetings are open to everyone–Wednesdays at 9pm, UC 211/212.

Blessings during this mid-term week.
