It’s time for another SGA update. Here’s what’s been going on:
You may have seen the large, inflatable jumping creatures at the men’s
basketball game vs. Hampden-Sydney. SGA was pleased to help co-sponsor
their performance along with Athletic Events, Marketing, and CAC.
Everyone there enjoyed their crazy antics.
EMU’s Board of Trustees convened for their fall meeting, and we as
Co-Presidents reported to them on behalf of SGA. We updated them on the
current Senate, as well as happenings within our organization. We were
pleased to give a glowing report to a board which received us with
affirmation. We also supported an official statement in conjunction with
the Morally Responsible Investment Club, who met with the Board’s Finance
Committee and urged them to support more morally responsible investment
within the Mennonite financial institutions.
Thanks to Senators Peyton Erb and Darian Harnish for their work at putting
together another successful Faculty Forum. We are also grateful for the
willingness of the faculty/staff panel–Walt Surratt, Matt Siderhurst, Don
Clymer, Amy Springer, and Vi Dutcher. It’s great to be able to get to
know EMU faculty and staff outside the classroom.
Recently, we helped fund a trip to New York for several members of Peace
Fellowship to the annual MCC-UN Conference. They will be having a forum
to discuss their experience in Common Grounds on Wednesday, Dec 8 at 8pm.
Keep your eye out, matey, for these upcoming happenings:
-SGA Caroling before chapel, Monday, Dec. 13 at 10am (last day of class!)
-Late Night Breakfast, Wednesday, Dec. 15 at 10pm
-Apparel give-aways at select athletic events
-Food Drive early next semester for Patchwork Pantry
As always, our weekly meetings (Wednesdays at 9pm) are open to all
students, our minutes are posted at www.emu.edu/sga, and let us know if
you have any questions or ideas at email@example.com. Happy studying!
