The last Student Government Association, SGA meeting of the semester took place on Wed., April 6. During the meeting, SGA discussed a proposal to change the visitation and alcohol policies.

SGA presented its first draft of the changes they requested to be made to YHC’s current policies concerning alcohol and visitation hours.

SGA suggested that visitation hours on Sunday-Thursday should be extended to 1:00 a.m. instead of its current time ending at 12:00 a.m. This change would include all students and is not based on class year. During weekends, SGA suggests that instead of visitation ending at 1:00 a.m., the hours should be extended to 3:00 a.m., with juniors and seniors having no visitation restrictions on weekends.

SGA members believe that a strict sing in/ sign out policy for weekend visitors should be enforced with the Resident Assistants.

Adjustments to alcohol policies are going to be requested also. SGA feels that alcohol should be provided at campus events such as, Spring Fest, Spring Formal, cookouts and during alumni weekend. Alcohol would only be available for students 21 or older, with strict supervision of those drinking at all events.

SGA members believe these policy changes would give upperclassmen the freedom and responsibilities they are looking for as adults on a college campus.

The final drafted proposal was sent to Susan Rogers, vice president of Student Development, on April 7. It will then be submitted to the President’s Leadership Council, who will consider and ultimately decide which changes, if any, will be made.
