SRSGA hosted its first meeting on Aug. 29 in the SSC theater. They elected senators, representatives and a parliamentarian to their governing body, as well as speak about a few issues that are currently arising on campus.
SRSGA spoke of their office hours, where to find them and how to reach them, if necessary. Hannah D’Egidio, the president, spoke about how they need to pick up where they left off at the end of spring 2022.

During the open forum, one of the senators mentioned that many students hate the new ROCK Audit platform.
The food workers on campus going on strike was another topic of interest. Senators wanted to know if there is anything we can do and if they have a plan ready just in case.
“There is nothing we can do to push for anything,” D’Egidio said. “That is a separate issue from our senate. We do, however, need to make sure that the students know what is going on.”
Food workers need to give a one-week notice before going on strike.
APSCUF said during open forum that the ROCK Audit is better for administration but not as convenient for students. They agreed to wait and see if new improvements are made.
The food pantry on campus is looking forward to student support and is open for everyone. SGA encouraged students in need to utilize this resource.
There is a new happy bus schedule. It now goes off campus to pick up students as well. Students can download the app NextBus to find out stop is nearest to them.
