On Tuesday, Sept. 21, the Student Government Association (SGA) held their weekly meeting discussing a new resolution focusing on security and future SGA-sponsored events.
Resolution 21-01 is SGA’s first resolution presented this year. Focused on increasing security for all residents, it proposes more patrols in several parking lots around campus housing, adding new cameras and continued upkeep of security call terminals.
“Increased security measures would reassure the students of Wright State University’s commitment to the welfare of the student body,” Chad Dudash, Residential Senator and sponsor of the resolution, said.
An increase in campus police reports is a serious issue for all SGA senators and is carefully being monitored by members of the SGA cabinet.
“I have heard a few different concerns from some of my personal friends about some incidents that have been happening in the residential area parking lots,” Jonathon Ciero, SGA President, said.
According to Dudash, the resolution was prompted by several complaints of car accidents in the residential parking lots.
The resolution was moved to old business and will be revisited at the next SGA meeting.
All Senators are actively pushing out information to their respective colleges about upcoming events for students to attend this fall.
One upcoming event is the Raider Nights in the City Cincinnati Reds game on Friday, Sept. 24. Tickets are still being sold and several Senators are excited to attend this event.
“I am very excited, I haven’t been to a baseball game in 12 years so I’m excited to go,” Madison Janson, College of Liberal Arts Senator, said.
Festival of Flight is taking place this Saturday, Sept. 25 in Lot 1. SGA wants students to be aware that Lot 1 will be closed starting on Wednesday, Sept. 22 to Monday, Sept. 27 due to festival set up.
Homecoming Week starts next week, Sept. 27 – Oct. 1. SGA is encouraging students to use Engage to find out dates and times for events such as the Homecoming parade, Chalk the Campus and Chili Cook Off.
SGA meetings are open to all and students are encouraged to attend. The next public meeting is tentatively scheduled for the Atlantis Room at 7 p.m. on Sept. 28.
