Last week on October 7th, 2020, the Student Government Association (SGA) presented plans for a pumpkin decorating competition, passed legislation, and swore in new senators.

The SGA pumpkin decorating competition will be held in late October. The SGA will provide and judge the pumpkins that will then be placed throughout the Morgan University Center.

Applications for the pumpkin decorating contest can be found on the SGA’s social media accounts. 

Applications will be due on Oct. 19 at 12:00 p.m. Decorated pumpkins will then be due on Oct. 28 at 4:30 p.m.

The campus can expect more SGA legislation as the semester unfolds. 

In the last session, Senator William Cody’s bill, Resolution 1, was voted on and passed with no debate. Senator Cody’s bill would prompt a letter of recommendation to the University Curriculum Committee (UCC). 

If granted by the UCC, Resolution 1 would make American Sign Language an accredited course in a foreign language.

Along with legislation, the SGA swore in three new senators. 

Senator Brooklyn White was sworn into the College of Education; Senator Elliot Reed was sworn into the College of Stem, and Chantal Alequin was sworn in as a Senior Senator.

If the campus wants to learn more, they can attend AP Day on November 14th and meet representatives from the SGA. AP Day will be offered in three sessions from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. 

Social distancing requirements and masks will be necessary for attendance.
