Recently elected SGA senators were sworn into office last week on September 16th, 2020.

Stewart Black, Zaid Malik, Robert Shelton, William Cody, Damilola Olasupo, and Sean Siple were the newly-elected senators officially sworn in.

Senator applications in the College of Education and College of Stem Senior are open and available online on SGA’s APSU webpage.

No senators have proposed legislation yet, but the campus can expect more to come in the following weeks.

Aside from legislative procedures, the SGA is also hosting the Presidential Debate Watch Party on September 29th, 2020.

The debate will be between presidential candidates Republican candidate Donald J. Trump and Democratic candidate Joe Biden. The debate is to take place at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland.

This debate season is particularly special for Tennesseeans as the third Presidential Debate will be held at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee.

Originally the first presidential debate was to be hosted by the University of Notre Dame in Indiana. However, they withdrew in late July over concerns regarding the COVID-19.

Attendees must adhere to social distancing protocols and wear masks. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the limited capacity of the event is now 77 people. As of now, seating will be reserved on a first-come-first-serve basis. Yet, restrictions are always subject to change depending on-campus data related to COVID-19.

The watch party will be in the Clement Auditorium from 7:30-9:30 p.m. The SGA will provide food and drinks for guests.
