The Student Government Association approved two new organizations Monday.
The Justice League of Physics was approved as a new organization Monday evening.
The league, which previously had been named Physics Club, are trying to expand this year and wanted to get involved with SGA.
They plan to open enrollment up to the entire campus, but currently have 20 members within the physics major.
They plan to bring physics and engineering guest speakers to campus, including two guest speakers next semester. They also plan on holding demonstrations in the Quad and having a paper plane building project and contest.
Students for Sustainability was approved as a new organization as well.
According to President of Students for Sustainability, the organization started a few years ago through the College of Business, and they are now looking to open up the organization to all students, faculty, staff and other community members.
They are looking for any members who are in favor of living an eco-friendly lifestyle.
Next semester the organization plans to hold a ‘plant a tree event’ which involves removing recyclable items from the trash and creating a piece of art from them as an awareness event.
Other things the organization plans to do include inviting guest speakers to campus, enforcing the Clean Air Act in Pa., and getting more students on campus involved.
SGA also approved their election commissioner and committee for the 2013 SGA executive board elections.
The election commissioner is Blake McChesney, Vice President of Campus Outreach. The advisor of the committee is Dr. Christine Pease-Hernandez, professor of communication.
Other committee members include Jake Miller, Graduate Senator; Alister Englehart, Graduate Senator; Jake Hostler, Commuter Senator; Marcie Johnson, Commuter Senator; and Elise Michaux.
