The Student Government Association hosted its first President’s roundtable for the fall 2018 semester on Sept. 24 at the ASU lake house where ASU President Dr. Brian May spoke.

"SGA is the eyes, ears, voice and advocate for the students," May said. "We want to be proactive about the problems students have, since we are all in this together."

The President’s roundtable is an event where students and faculty can address questions and concerns about campus life.

"We are better at preventing an act of violence than responding to it," James E. Adams, director of public safety and chief of university police, said. "If you get an alert, pay attention to it and follow the instructions." Adams said.

Dining and parking services issues were addressed.

Tracy Baker, director of housing and residential programs, said that they are looking into extending the hours for food services. Richard Gonzalez, director of dining services, said that if students cannot eat during hours of operation, they should contact one of the staff members.

During the renovation of the cafeteria, other places will be open to eat. The baseball park will be created into Roscoe’s at the Park. A food application will be created where students can order food online and pick it up.

Sandra Rosser, director of OneCard and parking services, said that students can appeal a citation within 10 days of receiving it. Rosser said that many times people will receive a violation due to the time an officer walks through the lot and puts a citation on the vehicle.

Angie Wright, vice president for finance and administration, said there is a budget that students can view to see where all expenses for tuition are going. General revenue for student services and other resources are also mentioned on the budget, along with the budget for constructions, renovations and other projects.

May addressed the bereavement procedures for students, which includes Ram Remembrance, when a candlelight ceremony takes place.

May stated that the Memorial Oak Grove honors alumni who were lost in World War II

The President said he is willing to work on an official bereavement policy for students.

After the roundtable, a senate meeting was held.

The confirmation of new senators Terri Burt and Bailey Champlain took place.

The Student Government Association proposes and works to achieve new projects that shape the campus in a positive way.
