The Student Government Association discussed new bills and welcomed special guests at the senate meeting on Nov. 5 in the C.J. Davidson Conference Center.

Bill No. 90.08 proposed to allocate $250 to the Ram Family Student Endowment Committee. The Ram Family Student Endowment Committee had requested $250 from the overall committee budget to help fund fundraising activities. The money raised will help students with financial needs by increasing the amount of the endowment fund.

Bill No. 90.09 proposed that the SGA would recognize and express gratitude toward Rep. K. Michael Conaway for taking the opportunity to speak and answer questions from the student body of ASU. The members said they appreciated him taking time from his bust schedule to do so.

Special guests from Shannon Clinic spoke about the services that are offered. The clinic workers said diagnostic services are free, but prescriptions may not be covered.

"The story we have to tell you about health services is tremendous," David Rosipal of Shannon said. "We are accountable to all of you,"

Mark Rehm, director of counseling services, discussed the statistics of counseling services and mental health at ASU. He said counseling services has plans to implement mental health software for those who may not want face to face counseling.

Sara Lamog, VISTA project manager, discussed the opportunities AmeriCorps offers.

"If current students or recent graduates are looking to get their foot in the door at an organization that aligns with their career goals, then there are endless possibilities with this program," Lamog said.

The Transportation Committee encouraged students to like their Facebook page and follow their Twitter account @asurides.

SGA also discussed the following upcoming events:

A diabetes awareness walk will be held on Nov. 14 at Kirby Community Park.

The Ram Family Scholarship Committee will host a dunking booth on Nov. 16.

The Special Events Committee said the Christmas tree lighting will take place on Nov. 27 from 5-9 p.m.
