The Student Government Association is now looking for new senators for the 2017 Fall semester and is planning to get more businesses to join their student discount program.

SGA Secretary Kasey Smith said the current senators of SGA are encouraged to apply for higher positions, such as president and vice president for next semester but included that they need new senators.

"Anyone can apply to be senator as long as they meet our GPA requirement and hours requirements," Smith said.

The GPA requirement is a 2.0 and the minimum hours requirement is 12.

Smith said the applications to be a senator can be found on the SGA website under the tab that says Senator Applications.

SGA Senator Ian Stark said that they are currently trying to get more businesses on the student discount program.

"Basically the Public Relations Committee made it a point of ours to work on expanding the student discount program on campus in order to make it more affordable and efficient for people to live and function in the San Angelo area while still attending college," Stark said.

Stark said they have many businesses on their list already where students can get discounts and special offers from.

"In the last week… we added two new businesses, one of which being the Tuscany Apartments," Stark said.

Stark said the discount there will be $50 off of the registration fee.

"It is quite notable, especially for students that want to move out of the dorms eventually," Stark said.

Stark said the other business they added was at the Carr Clinic.

"It’s continuing a greater trend we began last semester to connect better with the community and connect the voices of the students who many of which have to speak through their wallets to the community at large through the organization of SGA," Stark said.

Stark said SGA and the Public Relations committee is basically trying to expand the student discount program.

Stark said SGA sets up a weekly table in the UC that is an "open conference" where they provide information about new projects and discounts.

"That’s really what we are pushing right now," Stark said.
