Aaron Medina, junior, reads a bill that recommends Chartwells extends their hours of operation to better serve students.

SGA passed several bills, announced two new additions to the student discount program and said their parting messages to the senate in their last meeting of the semester.

Vice President Alfredo Felipe said they passed four bills, Bill 88.06, 88.07, 88.08 and 88.09.

"One of the bills we passed was a recommendation to open a job position for a student worker at the Center for International Studies as a translator position for all promotional material and advertisements we students get through our emails," Felipe said.

The next bill was the recommendation for Chartwells to extend food service hours an extra hour on weekdays.

"Another one was a recommendation to provide a waiver for the Carr scholarship for students with 10 or more credit hours either from transfer or dual credit hours for their sophomore and junior year," Felipe said.

Senator Michael Abarca said they added two new additions to the student discount program last week.

"Wildewood Apartments, which offers half of the security deposit and half off the first month’s rent," Abarca said "There is also Angelo Back and Rehab which offers a free aqua massage."

Abarca said the massage uses water jets to give a full body massage.

"It doesn’t actually get you wet because it has a cover and the jet shoots on there," Abarca said.

Abarca said it is free of charge when you become a member.

Felipe and President Peyton LaBauve said their thoughts on the year.

Felipe said the he thought the senate had a productive year.

"Although we don’t advertise a lot of things we do, we’ve done things behind the curtain," Felipe said.

Felipe said they got things done and pushed through.

LaBauve said the year was fulfilling for him.

"I think we took the year to really restructure the senate and create a foundation," LaBauve said.

They reestablished how the meetings take place, when they take place, how people interact and when they interact.

"It has improved us tremendously," LaBauve said.

LaBauve said they have the highest retention of any student government ever at ASU between semesters.

"It has been the smoothest and relaxing year and we got a lot done in a short amount of time," LaBauve said.

LaBauve said he appreciates all the work and that it was a pleasure working with them.

"I’m very proud of them and I wish them luck next year," LaBauve said.

LaBauve said he is looking forward to watch what they produce.
