These changes will gradually occur over the coming months.
The SGA Board swore in a member as the new SGA Director of Design and Technology.
They swore in Elena Moret unanimously.
Moret will be examining common rooms across campus to understand their original purpose was. She plans to come up with ideas about what to do with these underutilized spaces.
SGA’s President Ammiel Francis mentioned that the Global Solutions Forum will occur in the spring. He said it is something that students should look forward to.
