Transcript Student Government Association $C)fi gives Cougars a voice On a campus as populated as the University of Houston, students need a voice, and a means of influencing school policy to make certain their best interests are kept in mind. To that end, the UH Student Government Association (SGA) made certain that students had a hand in policy decisions on campus. The purpose of the Student Government Association was basically two-fold. First, the organization gave students a means of expressing concerns and opinions about the everyday operation of the UH campus. "It gives students a chance to protest university decisions which do not benefit them," said SGA Public Relations Director Hill Powell. Second, it attempted to cater to the needs of students, ensuring that everyone at UH was comfortable and happy. Several key accomplishments defined the SGA during the 2001- 2002 school year. The organization took a trip over to Austin during the fall semester to appear before the Texas Legislature and appeal for UH to receive Tier I funding. They were also instrumental in the relocation and preservation of Frontier Fiesta, the greatest college show on earth. Involving both UH students and students from area schools, the SGAs "Cougars that Care" program provided after-school enrichment including organized fishing trips and Astros games. The 33 members of the SGA were elected each spring to serve the following year. They typically met every other Wednesday to discuss issues vital to student well-being on campus. If something about the University of Houston was of concern, one of the best ways to broadcast that concern was through the UH Student Government Association. -Matthew E. Caster mIfs a sand mound..."
