Caleb Conaway is asked about his experience in a running for chair at the first Student Government Association meeting. Conaway ultimately found a place as the Chair of the Transportation Committee.


The Student Government Association passed multiple bills in its first meeting of the school year on Monday, Sept. 11, in the Junell Center VIP room.

“My goal is to increase civic engagement in students,” Brayden Woods, vice president of the senate, said. “I am a firm believer in getting students to vote. I feel like students should be able to use their voice to determine who they want to represent them.”

SGA is the voice of all students and makes decisions about improving the campus.

“I want to make sure that ASU feels like home for students on campus,” Shayna Mullen, president of the senate, said. “I am looking forward to making sure that students feel included on campus through different programs.”

At the meeting the group went over multiple bills for approval.

Bill No. 90.03 recognizes that Professor Gustavo Manuel Campos is an honorary member of the Student Government Association. Professor Campos hosts a birthday bash to raise money for a local charity or nonprofit organization. Professor Campos’ 35th birthday bash raised over $3500 for the Student Endowment Fund.

Bill No. 90.04 stated the approval of the proposal for two Health Science Professions senatorial seats. The two available seats for the Health Science Professions Department will be open for spring 2019.

Mullen discussed how she plans on keeping the members of the senate motivated.

“I let everyone know that I am here to help them by working hands on with their projects and initiatives,” Mullen said.

Confirmation of new senators took place during the forum. The new senators are Emma Duke, Deyalex Gonzalez, Jessica Rios, Sheila Corcino, Minh Luu, Isaiah Garcia, Joshua Quinton, Caleb Conaway, Lambert Landry, Nathan Whitson, Brady Floyd, Samantha Brown, Matthew Villarreal and Connor Brennan.

Multiple committee chairs were appointed during the meeting as well.

Kasey Smith, Secretary of Senate covered the 2018-2019 budget. The budget includes how much money goes toward the Christmas Tree Lighting, the Rammys and other resources.

Mullen said that students can come to her office with questions or concerns about the Student Government Association or anything campus-related.

The student government proposes and works to achieve new projects that shape the campus in a positive way.
