SGA President Peyton LaBauve updates the student senate on events that are coming up. SGA works for the betterment of ASU’s campus.

The Student Government Association discussed successful events that have passed recently and upcoming events in their meeting on Monday night.

Jarett Lujan, former SGA president and current admissions counselor spoke about "Home for Holidays," which is a program where students sign up to return to their home towns over the Christmas break and speak to their high schools about attending ASU.

Lujan said when students sign up, they would receive information packets, campus pens and data cards for students to fill out and receive information about ASU.

Students who fill out the data cards will be entered to win a t-shirt.

Another upcoming event SGA has is inviting UT Permian Basin’s student government to come tour the CHP and other facilities on campus.

SGA President Peyton Labauve, said many other student governments communicate with each other by doing these kinds of visits.

"We communicate about out constitutions, structures, our organizations," Labauve said.

Labauve said that they talk about how their organizations work dealing with how big their schools are; how many people are in the group, how often they have meetings, etc.

Labauve said that it is good that Permian Basin wants to see ASU, since they are a smaller school.

"They can look to us for advice," Labuave said.

Vice President Alfredo Felipe said this is the first time SGA has done something like this.

The Committee for Student Affairs of SGA would like to hold another night walk.

They would also like to create a position for someone to translate the events into other languages for the international students; both topics are still being dicussed.

SGA recently had a free 5k run available on campus and the group agreed that it was a success by having 70-80 people participate.

"It was phenomenal," Labauve said.

They partnered with Shannon for the event and gave them free first aid kits.

"It was to promote cardiovascular health and fitness as well," Felipe said.

Labauve said it was successful and they wish to do it again in the spring.
