The Student Government Association met on Tuesday with its main focus being the proposed fees for the 2015-2016 fiscal year.
With fees expected to rise for meal plans, the student rec. center, health center, transportation, and parking, those in attendance were given the chance to voice comments or questions regarding the changes. All questions asked for the reasons behind the raised amounts. The increase in the rec center’s fee is due to a state-required fee on new buildings that goes toward a fund for when the building must be removed. Food service price hikes are the result of Aramark raising their rates by 2.99 percent and the CPI dictating increases.
Both the Kronum Club and the Swing Dance Club gave presentations, giving details on what their respective clubs are about and what they do. Both are looking for new members.
The meeting was mired by a lack of attendance from SGA members. With so many missing, any votes that had been planned were postponed until the following meeting. Members of the cabinet mentioned that there are currently multiple SGA seats open to those who are interested, and that there are plenty of funds available for sponsorships of club events.
