Monday night’s SGA meeting was highlighted by a suggestion that the Oak lot be restricted to commuters to alleviate parking problems.
Amber Worthy, SGA vice president, mentioned the suggestion.
“One suggestion that was brought up was that the Oak Street parking lot would be extended to commuters – all of that (would be) commuter parking,” Worthy said, “and Sustella would be for residents, and they’ll count (the parking spots) to make sure that’s enough.”
She also noted that President Ryan Baerwalde would meet with VSU President William McKinney about parking on Tuesday and that they were open to suggestions to discuss during that meeting.
Almost immediately, Samuel Logan, former SGA senator, sitting with the visitors, chimed in.
“More parking spots, for commuter students, not just on campus,” he said.
SGA also discussed the first town hall meeting, set for Sept. 24.
The town hall meeting will replace the regular SGA meeting.
The event, which is seen as less formal than the meetings, is also seen by the SGA as an opportunity for students to meet and talk with senators about topics relevant to them.
Also, freshman election packets are available in the Student Affairs office and are due by 3 p.m. Friday, complete with 25 endorsing signatures from VSU students. Ten freshman seats are up for grabs in the upcoming freshman elections.
