The Student Government Association held its senator elections to solidify its board in order to productively represent the student body.
The senator elections were held to encourage not only freshman participants, but all students interested in becoming involved with the SGA.
In the pursuit to be more sustainable, the elections occurred via student email this year. Every student received an email with their own personal code, to ensure they only voted once. This year, there were 75 students that cast their vote.
Typically the SGA likes to have the sophomore, junior and senior elections in May along with all the other positions.
Since it did not receive enrollment for those positions, it was pushed back to the freshman senator elections. The SGA elected Freshman Frankie Sanchez and Senior Austin Farina on the board this fall, according to Sustainability Chair Marina McCoy.
“Class senators represent the voice of that particular class. But we also have senators that are for specific majors such as a Business and Psychology department,” Director of Events Haley Gray said.
In SGA, the class senators hold the important role of bridging the void between the students and the higher tier of student activities and clubs.
Grade senators now have more stipulations and duties than non-grade senators. Grade senators go to all the SGA meetings, events and press responsibilities.
“If the class has something they would like to voice, they generally would go to their grade senator so that they can come to meetings and share those ideas with SGA,” President Aaron Wiener said.
The SGA breaks down its board through an executive board and then through senators.
The executive board is divided in two committees: the Judicial and Events committee.
The Judicial committee consists of President Aaron Wiener, Vice President Cole Mizak, Secretary Mei Li Le Roy and Treasurer Brendan Wheelwright.
The Events committee includes Sustainability Chair Marina McCoy, Director of Events Haley Gray and director of Public Relations Katie Russie.
“It’s really great that we have a full board now. Hopefully next year for elections more people will be involved to better the school and the community,” McCoy said.
Students can contact the SGA at StudentGovernmentAssociation@sierranevada.edu or www.SNCSGA.com.
Get ready for a year of fun activities at Sierra Nevada College. The Student Government Association is here to make your SNC experience the best it can be. Our goal is to be a voice for all students, whether it is your first semester or we’ve known you for four years.
With the remarkable backdrop of Sierra Nevada College and an active assembly of students to match, SNC offers clubs that are both active and interest oriented.
Gathered in Patterson Hall, students patiently gnawed on snacks while they glanced at their watches, anticipating the commencement of student skits during Bohemia Night at 8 p.m. on April 2.
“It is the longest running student event: for students, by students,” said Junior Sasha Severance.
The 30th annual Bohemia Night showcased the exceptional talents that are hidden within the student body at Sierra Nevada College.
Spring formal tickets are now on sale at the front desk in Patterson. The fee is a refundable deposit of $10, but if you want to bring a guest the cost of their ticket is $20. Spring formal is Saturday, May 10, but we only have a limited number of tickets so make sure you pick yours up today.
Students were lured away from the monotonous stress of midterms week by the crackle of crispy bacon and the savory promise of maple syrup to Patterson Hall, where the Student Government Association (SGA) served pancakes to accompany stump speeches.
