Sept. 11

At the Edinboro University Student Government Association (EUSGA) meeting on Sept. 11, several new ideas were introduced, along with introductions from the returning EUSGA members.

They also talked the reduction of individual student club budgets by 10 percent from approved budgets last year to account for a decrease in university enrollment.

EUSGA also mentioned the possibility of opening all positions up for election, instead of only the presidential position. They also discussed creating longer terms to be held by the elected officials.

Sept. 18

At the EUSGA meeting on Sept. 18, it was brought to everyone’s attention that the yearly budget would be determined and presented at the meeting on Sept. 25.

They discussed that the provost of the university is looking for members of student government to help with renovation plans for Van Houten Dining Hall. These students would help with decisions such as what furniture will be placed in the area. This opportunity came about in order to involve students, and to have them give input, since the dining hall is used by the students.

SGA is also working on a possible “Crash Your Campus” event, which would be organized through the admissions office. The event would be a slumber party in the campus dome, and would be for junior and senior high school students. This would be an opportunity for students who will soon be entering college to see Edinboro. The student government believes this would be a way to draw interest to the university, as well as possibly boosting admissions.

The idea was also brought up that SGA could begin to travel to high schools in the area to talk to students and engage with them about the university. This way, as they explained, the students would be able to ask questions and hear about the schools from the students themselves.
