Oktoberfest Was A Success

Last week the SGA sponsored the Oktoberfest celebration, with different events and themes each day. On Monday we sponsored Grocery Bag Bingo. About 50 students showed up to play and win one of 24 bags of groceries. The students had a lot of fun and definitely enjoyed their very full bags of food. Tuesday we gave away about 200 free pretzels outside of the lunchroom. Wednesday was the big day with our final cookout of the fall semester. We gave away bratwurst and sauerkraut in true Oktoberfest style. Students and staff thought that it was wunderbar, and almost 300 people went through the line. The week came to a close on Thursday with free cotton candy and Friday with a showing of Ferris Bueller's Day Off in the NECE.

We want to thank everyone for participating and hope that you had as good a time as we did!

Constitutional Amendment Proposed

Yesterday at our Student Senate meeting, a Constitutional amendment was proposed that would change the procedure for filling vacant class apportioned Senate seats. Under the current procedures, special elections are to be held for the class that has vacant seats. Having just completed an election and still having open Senate seats, we question whether having frequent special elections is a good use of time.

The proposed amendment change the procedure so that the Senate may nominate up to two persons to fill each vacant seat and then vote on the nominees at the following meeting, electing them to finish the remainder of the term.

You can stop by the SGA office to take a look at the proposed amendment and to voice your opinion to your elected representatives.

Welcome Week

It's our first week back at school, and we've been kicking off our first semester as the newly reformed student government in true BSC style. Yesterday was our annual Welcome Week Cookout and we had over 400 people come through our line for brats and dogs, which is a much higher turnout than many previous years. We also changed up our radio remote that we typically have and invited our very own BSC MYX radio station to come and spin some tunes for us. We had interviews with athletes, professors, coaches, and activities advisers to let students know what we have to offer at BSC.

Today we have more great stuff lined up. We have informational meetings scheduled throughout the day for freshmen who are interested in running for our open Senate seats. We had 6 people pick up applications yesterday, so hopefully today we have at least that. It would be awesome to have a real race this fall for Student Senate! We also have a hypnotist show scheduled at 8pm with Sailesh. Students won't want to miss out a show that always pleases and entertains the students.

Finally, tomorrow we have our very popular Create-A-Critter event where students can come and stuff an animal with a little love and take it home with them. Lions, t-rex, hippos, and dogs are the choices this time around.

If you want to learn more about SGA or have concerns about campus, stop by the office, which is open every school day from 12pm to 4pm.
