Without any doubt, the Student Government Association has had an exciting week! We are continuously finding success in the following areas: The Big Event registration, SGA Meet and Greets, our first ever Treasurer’s Round Table, our “Love Conquers Hate” program, and we have recently elected two new members on to the general board!
The Big Event registration is going off without a hitch, with more than 300 students signing up to participate by the third day. We encourage you to sign up for the Big Event, which will give you the opportunity to give back to the Hamden, North Haven and New Haven communities. You will be able to participate with your friends, hall mates, team members, fraternity brothers and sorority sisters, organizational friends, and other fellow Bobcats in a day that you will never forget! On Saturday, April 10, your team will travel to the assigned site to participate in community service – painting outdated walls, playing with kids, assisting the elderly, organizing pantries and much more! Looking to get involved? EmailBigEvent@quinnipiac.edu or visit the Big Event table in the Student Center.
On Thursday, Feb. 18, the Presidents and Vice Presidents committee of the Student Government Association hosted its first Meet and Greet of the semester on the North Haven campus. The presidents and vice presidents of the class cabinets had the privilege to meet more than 100 students, while handing out coffee and doughnuts as complimentary breakfast treats! Our Meet and Greet on the North Haven campus gave us the opportunity to interact with students on advancing student life at Quinnipiac – especially for those who study at the North Haven campus. SGA will be hosting two more Meet and Greets throughout the semester. Look out for them and come voice your thoughts! We want to make your Quinnipiac experience the best it can be!
The Finance Committee of the Student Government Association has hosted its first ever Treasurer’s Round Table, which gave student organizational treasurers the opportunity to learn more about the finance and budgetary process. There were over forty campus treasurers present – and we look forward to meeting more in the future!
Our “Love Conquers Hate” program was held on Tuesday, Feb. 23, and was hosted by more than 10 student organizations. This program, organized by Sophomore Class Rep. Kaite Lovett and the Programming Committee, highlighted the positive attributes Quinnipiac organizations bring to the Quinnipiac community in terms of diversity and communal respect. We are thankful to those who were in attendance, and to those organizations that had a hand in the success of the program.
Lastly, the Student Government Association welcomes its newest members, Junior Class Rep. Ashley Rose Sherman and Freshman Class Rep. Nicole Hurst. We look forward to their participation in advancing the quality of student life here in the Quinnipiac community.
