In the fall 2012 semester, the SGA executive council has taken huge strides to enhance the lives of the student body on campus. A strategic plan was created to evaluate issues on campus and then create a method of action to address them — all while being completely transparent to the student body.
Before the end of this semester, SGA President Nigel Huckle will be giving a State of the Union address. He will speak to students about what SGA has been doing, what they are planning to do and what is in store for the future. This will be videotaped so be sure to keep an eye out for it.
One of the main projects of the SGA this year has been a proposal with Winchester Transit to create a bus route that takes students from campus to downtown Winchester. This plan would lead to more activities downtown and will give students the opportunity to explore all that Winchester has to offer. There are numerous restaurants, venues and shops for students to visit and SGA wants students to have options on the weekends. This bus would run Thursday through Saturday from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m., the peak times when students go out and do whatever they choose to do. This program would go into effect next fall.
This proposal is currently in the developmental stages and SGA’s mission is to adhere to the goals and wishes of the students. There needs to be adequate proof that this would be a beneficial and worthwhile program and that students would utilize it. The members of the executive council are carrying petition clipboards around campus. If you want to know more about this proposal and sign the petition, just stop any one of them and ask.
With the start of the spring 2013 semester, SGA hopes to continue to connect with the student body and hear what you all feel and want out of your experience at Shenandoah. So, be sure to check in with us through our Facebook and Twitter pages and also stop by during our office hours, which are posted on our Facebook page.
