SGA proposes new student survey

The Student Government Association meeting Sept. 30 has unofficially proposed to survey the student body at Laramie County Community College to determine what the organization can do for students.

SGA members admitted they were uncertain what students wanted from their student leadership. The proposed survey would ask students what they would like to see SGA do. They also encouraged students to participate in the survey and to bring their concerns to the SGA desk in the student lounge area.

The three newly elected senators, who attended the meeting for the first time, were Ryan Flaten, a wildlife conservation major; DJ Heaney, undecided; and Samuel Lanier, a general studies major.

SGA President Jackson Craft said to the new senators regarding desk time in the student lounge: “You won’t be doing much. Let’s be honest.” However, adviser Danielle Saulsberry expressed her displeasure at the amount of face-to-face time with students the senators were getting during desk hours.

In other business, the offensive questions on the “Think About It” training survey have been removed, according to Dean of Students Dr. Jill Koslosky. This new survey will be required for all new students as well as a yearly drug and alcohol training survey for all students. Koslosky is currently unaware how that training survey will happen. Enrollment for the next semester will be blocked until “Think About It” is taken and, in the future, until the yearly drug and alcohol survey is completed as well. Participation in this training is necessary to keep the college’s Title IX eligibility.

A Halloween-themed blood drive will take place Oct. 30 from 9 a.m-1 p.m.

SGA is in charge of the Oct. 3 men’s soccer half time show, which will kick off homecoming week. They will have contestants spin around a baseball bat until dizzy and try to kick a soccer ball. Prizes as well as gifts will be handed out during the game, which starts at 1:30 p.m.
