USGA will continue to advertise the open senate seats in the School of Education, which has no representatives seven weeks into the semester.
Some of the senators were worried about empty senate seats for the School of Education. Vice President, Michayla Jeremiah, says that they have accepted one application for the seat and that the seats will continue to be advertised.
“Right, that’s an important thing. That’s why we opened the applications back up so we can have the school advocated for. We have had an applicant and we will have them present for the senate at a later date,” Jeremiah said.
During the student forum a representative mentioned the lack of dining options in the Education and Engineering Complex for engineering and education students. USGA president Angela Lee said she had spoken with Brian Bowser, head of dining, who told her that the lack of laborers is the reason dining has been closed.
“Right now, a lot of the challenges that dining is facing is just because of the national labor shortages, which is one of the reasons why options on campus aren’t open,” Lee said.
Lee said that when she speaks with him again, she will mention getting some dining options in that area.
TRIO Teacher preparation and TRIO 2 gave brief overviews of their programs and encouraged USGA members to help students within the department they represent get involved.
Trio is a federally funded organization that helps students who are first generation students, experience lower income, or have a documented disability receive the support they need to be successful in their field. Trio offers tutoring, scholarships, college tours, and many other resources.
Each school representative gave a report. Most schools said they were working on contact with their dean or working on events for their schools.
