Brayden Woods, President Pro Tempore, shares his thoughts during a meeting.

The Student Government Association is working on big projects and discussed meal plan changes.

Student Body President Emily Hecox said the Caf is going offline December 1, 2018, but it won’t be off for most of the fall semester. Hecox said it should be up and running by fall 2019.

“However, the Caf is going offline in the spring, but they are redoing the meal plan in the fall to accommodate for when it goes offline in the spring,” Hecox said.

SGA officer Brayden Woods said Chartwells and Housing are still working on a few minor details for the meal plan.

“They have weekly meetings giving updates on how they are going to do things,” Woods said.
Woods said construction in general is inconvenient. but the Caf needs this remodel.
“Getting it out of the way now is best,” Woods said. “As much as it is an inconvenience, I’m excited for the change.”

Woods said there are new options going online for the meal plan because of this construction project. For example, Einstein Bro’s Bagels will have 100 percent of their items on the meal plan.
“It’s going to help the students dramatically,” Woods said.

Woods said Housing plans to work on keeping these options up.

“As soon as the Caf comes back online with those options that were added, they are going to try to keep it that way,” Woods said.

Woods said they are currently working on the Rammys as well.

“We’re helping plan the 26th Rammys for ASU where we recognize organizations and special individuals that help make the campus what it is now, which is the Ram Fam,” Woods said. 

Woods said they also have a student endowment scholarship with applications closing March 30.

“We spoke to the scholarship office, and they received over 100 applications so far,” Woods said. “So 100 students have applied for this scholarship that is for students, by students.”

Woods said those are SGA’s two big projects currently.

Woods said they recently had joint congress where they, as a system (Texas Tech System), helped pass the senate bill for joint congress.

“The bill is a bill that we are sending to individuals in federal government that help lobby for a VA clinic in Lubbock,” Woods said. 

Woods said veterans who are in need of care can get help there.

“VA care is lacking in Texas in general,” Woods said. 

Woods said they have elections coming up as well. The dates are set for April 10 and 11.

“Campaigning hasn’t started yet,” Woods said. “Elections are a big thing, but president and VP are running uncontested, so it’s not going to be as glamorous as last election because there is no one else running for those seats.”

Woods said everyone is running uncontested except for a few senators.

“We’re winding down, but everything is still moving pretty quickly because deadlines are coming up,” Woods said.
