SGA returns for spring semester

Illinois State University’s Student Government Association met for the first time this semester Wednesday at 7 p.m in the Bone Student Center Old Main Room.

In an opening statement, Vice President Maureen Christensen thanked the entire campus community for its support of ISU student Ben Allison, who passed away Tuesday after sustaining major injuries in a hit and run Monday. Like Christensen, Allison was a member of ISU student radio production WZND. Christensen called for thoughts and prayers for Allison’s family.

Senator Miles Spann’s report stated he attended the Bloomington-Normal Not in Our Town event, “Breaking Barriers,” held Friday, Jan. 23 to discuss policing methods in light of a recently released recording of Sergeant Ed Shumaker making a comment toward an African American stabbing victim. Spann was not present at the SGA meeting, and another senator delivered his report. Spann’s report detailed there would be another event on the topic later this semester.

Student Life Senator Ehsawn Feiz presented an idea to the General Assembly to install ATMs in major apartment complexes on campus. Feiz said the idea is still new and no plans to install any ATMs are yet in place.

SGA will meet again at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 11 in the Old Main room.
