SGA talks SGA election, Last Lecture

March 17, 2011

The Student Government Association, SGA discussed Letters of Intent, electronic voting for SGA, Last Lecture and the hammocks in the weekly Wednesday meeting held in Rollins Dining Hall.

Letters of Intent are documents that officially show a student’s interest in running for an executive position or committee head position. The letters will be available from March 23 through March 30 in the Student Government Office. The deadline for turning in letters is March 30 at 4 p.m.  The campaigning will start on March 31.

SGA has decided to provide an electronic form of voting this year to make the voting process easier. During the voting time all students will be sent an e-mail with a link to a website, where they can vote for a representative. The representative students vote for must be someone in their class. This new process of voting will present real time results that will not need to be tallied and re-tallied. As each person votes the SGA representative in charge will monitor the votes. This new electronic process will prevent anyone from voting twice, because each e-mail would only be able to be sent once.

Also, Last Lecture, which started last semester is an opportunity for professors to give lectures to students that they would give if they knew it would be there last. The next lecture entitled, “Books for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner” will be on Tuesday March 22in Wilson Lecture Hall from 7 to 8 p.m. by Louisa Franklin.

According to SGA, the association began research last semester on hammocks for students to rent out from the recreation center. They will soon be available in the recreation center.
