Student Government is back in action as of Wednesday, Sept. 3, when the organization conducted its first general body meeting of the year.
In his first meeting as the Student Government president, Matthew Wells introduced the organization’s new advisor, Amy Hecht.
Hecht discussed the installation of new equipment in the Physical Enhancement Center, as well as new rims for the basketball nets in the Recreation Center. She noted that “although it isn’t perfect yet, it’s getting there.”
Hecht also confirmed that the proposed $20 charge for fitness classes at the Rec Center will no longer be going into effect this semester.
“We are still looking at it for the future, though,” she said.
Hecht also touched on the upcoming renovations in the Brower Student Center that are scheduled to take place later in the year, but did not go into detail.
VP of Advancement Sarah Drozd announced that Student Government is looking for a new Webmaster.
“If you or anybody you know is interested in filling the position, reach out to us,” she said.
Later, VP of Student Services Navid Radfar announced that the organization is co-sponsoring “TCNJam.” Comparable to Penn State’s “Thon,” it is a dance-a-thon to support the B+ Foundation, which works to help children battling cancer. It is scheduled for Monday, Nov. 8, from noon to midnight.
VP of Governmental Affairs Jess Glynn told members about a new mission for clubs at the College.
“We want to know if they are active. We want to review their constitutions and we want to get a record for SG to keep on file,” Glynn said. “It’s a big project that we anticipate will span several years.”
Before the meeting adjourned, Student Trustee Ryan Boyne and Alternate Student Trustee Kevin Kim announced that Student Government elections will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 23.
