The Student Government Association made some outstanding firsts in their work to provide improvements for the university. For example, for the first time in the history of SGA, Chartwells drink prices were lowered. In addition, campus security has increased through executive task forces such as ETS- a fast response group designed to handle emergencies on campus. Twenty-four hour library access during finals was also established. The SGA had a few stumbling blocks placed in their way during the year, but they managed to work around them to focus on university improvement. The group was optimistic about the future of the SGA, and planned to continue to make improvements in the coming years, Oonica Beckett SOMETHING TO SAY SGA President James Robertson, a senior MIS major, gave a speech during a special presidential meeting.
