SGA talks snow

January 12, 2011

By Carmen Brown, Staff Writer

The Student Government Association had their first public, weekly meeting of the 2011 Spring semester. In this meeting they discussed things such as the ice on the sidewalks, an extension for Drop/Add Week, Last Lecture Series and Freshman Forgiveness.

Due to the weather conditions, classes began a day and a half late this semester; and with snow and ice lingering throughout campus, there was concern from students over slipping on the ice on their way to and from classes.

SGA President Matthew Kammerer spoke with the grounds staff about this potential hazard.

Throughout the day the grounds staff salted and used all of the manpower that they could spare to make the campus safer to walk through; and while some icy spots remain around campus, several walkways have been cleared, such as the walkway from the cafeteria to Goolsby Lecture Hall.

While the ice problem is still present, SGA will be working on ways to make it safer for students.

Also, the Academic Affairs subcommittee in SGA is working to get Drop/Add Week extended through next week. Drop/Add Week is a chance for students to make changes to their schedule by dropping or adding classes. Because of the weather delay, SGA was able to get Drop/Add Week extended until next Wednesday.

Among other SGA news, the Last Lecture Series will be coming back to YHC this semester. This series features a YHC staff member that gives a presentation on any topic if it was their last lecture. The next Last Lecture is scheduled for January 20. The speaker will be announced at a later date.

Freshman Forgiveness has been enacted as of this semester. Despite the name ‘Freshman Forgiveness’ this opportunity is open to any student who receives a D or an F in a class and wishes to retake the course.  Freshman Forgiveness can apply to any course you take, but pick these courses carefully, since you can only retake two classes for the entire time that you attend YHC.

SGA meets weekly in the dining hall on Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m. All students are welcome to attend.

    In that last sentence: could you specify the day of the week. Without that the sentence has no clear meaning. Thanks.
