The Student Government Association voted to give the Friday Art Club and the Write Now Club recommendations to become official student organizations at their meeting on Oct 26.

The Friday Art Club allows students to create art outside of class and build their art resumes. The Write Now Club is a creative writing club to give the members the ability to talk about their pieces and enhance their writing skills.

The Friday Art Club’s president Maria Hernandez said she was both happy and excited for the club, which is gaining momentum since its inception.

SGA President Jarret Lujan said he wants to change the organization’s culture with the help of his executive team and senators.

“We want to incorporate that this is a student organization as opposed to a student governing organization,” Lujan said.

The Student Senate deliberated and voted to confirm two new students to represent the psychology, sociology and social work and agriculture departments in the SGA’s senator lineup.

The Psychology, Sociology, and Social Work Senator Morgan Lira said she wanted to join the SGA because it was an opportunity to give back to the university.

“I love Angelo State,” Agriculture Senator Sharla Gilcrest said. “I just want to make it better.”

The SGA did manage to bring fun into the Monday’s meeting with a costume contest in the spirit of Halloween.

Lujan said he was glad there was balance of seriousness and fun as the meeting began.

SGA also held a brief flag hanging ceremony. Lujan placed the flag alongside the rest of the student organization flags in the Houston Harte University Center.

“It’s great to be finally represented with the rest of the student organizations,” Lujan said. “And what better place than outside of the C.J. Davidson.”

The SGA collaborated with the Office of Communication and Marketing to design a new logo. Along with the new logo, the organization’s values were imbedded into the flag. Five stars are placed to represent ATLAS: achievement, tradition, leadership, awareness and service.

“Our five values I try to instill in everybody,” Lujan said.

The values were not seen in the constitution, but the SGA did want them to be displayed.
