The Edinboro University Student Government Association (EUSGA) meeting on Oct. 8 got off to a late start due to confusion about which room the meeting was in. EUSGA further asserted that meetings will always be held bi-weekly in Wiley 107. If that were to change, all congress members would be notified by email at least a day in advanced.

Old business was covered first. EUSGA is still taking input and ideas for the game room makeover. Ideas such as Edinboro mascot “Maccato” placed in different video games and a Lady Fighting Scot were thrown around, as the original idea of painting Mario characters cannot continue due to copyright issues. 

EUSGA then asked if attendees wanted police officers at meetings to discuss campus safety concerns. The debate went back and forth as to whether they should have private sessions or bring them to all meetings, but it was decided they could meet with students as needed on behalf of EUSGA. 

Business coordinator Leslie Colonello, meanwhile, has started Borosync tutorials every week so students can understand how to use it for their clubs. 

There are also E-Board positions still open for treasurer, public relations, secretary and parliamentarian. Interested students should apply through the BoroSync Portal. 

New business included OSD having job opportunities open for their peer advisor program. There are 10-15 positions open, while the job pays $7.75 an hour. Your GPA must be above a 2.3 to be considered. 

EUSGA also proposed working with a lawyer who is also an Edinboro professor to run a panel on legal advice and law issues for students, due to some of the landlord-tenant issues that have arisen among Edinboro students. “There are students I’m really aware of [who] need legal representation and advice,” stated Sherri Gould, financial advisor. 

EUSGA then called for announcements and questions from club members. They stated that if students brought forth announcements about events or fundraisers, they could help advertise that at meetings. 

A member from University Players announced that there will be auditions for “Children’s Hour” in Diebold from 7-10 p.m., Oct 9-10. 

Chimera announced that they were still taking literary submissions until Friday Oct. 12 at midnight. 

Clay Club will be having an opening reception for their exhibit at Bates Gallery in Loveland Hall on Wednesday, Oct. 10 from 6-7 p.m. There will be a silent auction. 

The National Society of Leadership and Success is holding a fundraiser for UNICEF and has donation boxes around campus. 

Say Anything Improv Club and University Players will be putting on a Halloween Dance, a costume contest and a showing of the “Rocky Horror Picture Show” on Oct. 31 in Diebold. The show starts at 7 p.m., while the dance starts at 9 p.m.
