SGA makes changes on campus and in community

Lap top policy, international students and student discounts discussed at meeting

Student Senate discussed on Sept. 29 a new laptop checkout policy on campus that leaves students concerned about their laptop access.

A new laptop policy has been established by the Information Technology department on campus that will no longer allow students to checkout laptops at the library past 11 p.m. because the IT department has been short staffed recently, and it is unable to have employees present after 11 p.m., Jared Goecker, student body president said.

Goecker has been discussing with the IT department possible solutions to this issue.

“I’m working with the IT department; they are being phenomenal and they are working with us really well to find a solution,” Goecker said.

Two new senators have joined the senate and both are prepared to make changes on campus.

Jamin Goecker, graduate student, brought forth the idea of energy conservation on campus. He said that it’s good, from a public relations stand point, if the campus is more energy efficient.

Ice Asortse, senior, wants traditional students to become more aware of international students and wants international students to be involved in around campus.

The Student Senate also discussed that they want to advertise the Student Discount Program to businesses around San Angelo.

If a business accepts this agreement, SGA will expect them to fly an ASU flag on home game days and will encourage them to provide some sort of discount for ASU students. In return, these businesses will be promoted by the student community.

“We have about 60 businesses currently on the program and this year it’s our goal to reach 100 by the end of the year,” Jared said. “It should be a pretty easy job to do if we put in the time to do it.” Jared said.
