Student government discusses safety, selects representatives
Associate Director of Safety Joey Pons spoke to the Student Government Association about campus safety as well as about a campus-wide walk to pinpoint potential transportation hazards.
The safety walk will focus on issues such as sidewalk cracks to tree limbs obscuring walkways. The volunteers who participate will also look at poorly lit spots on campus as well as reassessing well-lit spots.
“That may not be an important to you, but if you’re blind or you can’t see where you’re going, it’s very important,” Pons said.
The floor then opened up to senators, who spoke about issues such as flooding and debris around campus. Pons also clarified the tobacco-free policy.
In addition to safety, SGA also filled in spaces within the senate.
Student senators selected Katie Wappel as Greek Affairs representative, Philip McMahon as housing and infrastructure representative, Gabrielle Gallien as office of transportation services representative and Mary McMahon as campus safety representative.
The College of the Arts is finalizing its college project. Working with a $4,000 budget, the college representatives collaborated with theater staff members in Burke-Hawthorne Hall to create a list of items including black performance boxes, portable lights and a light board.
The College of Business President Thomas Shuff said the charging station in Moody Hall has arrived. Additionally, benches will be installed on the second floor of F.G. Mouton Hall.
The College of Education senators are still working on getting banners to advertise the college and kinesiology department.
The College of Engineering president announced the lack of space in Madison Hall has made installing vending machines there impossible. Instead, the senators are trying to get informative monitors in Maxim Doucet Hall.
The College of Nursing is looking into creating a patio with picnic tables for its college project.
