SGA and COVID

Ava Behr, Staff Reporter

This school year will bring on many challenges.  The Student Government Association (SGA) at Fairmont State University plans to link the students to the administration, staff, and many other organizations on campus during this difficult time.  They will support the ideas of their fellow students and make the best of the year, said SGA President, Frankie Delapas.   

The main goal of the Student Government at Fairmont State University is to make the voices of the students heard.  Vice President, Rebecca Luketic, remarked, We are more than open to ideas, and we really care about this school and the students here!”  Those who are members of SGA this year will have the chance to meet in person at Hardway Hall, but they are asking interested members of the public to join the meetings virtually on Webex.  The meetings will be held every Thursday at 12:30 p.m.  Additional information about the meetings will be available soon through the SGA’s social media accounts.   

The requirements to join the organization as a member are being a full-time student in good standing and to maintain a 2.75 GPA.  After being a member for one year, studentmay become an Executive officer of SGA.  Yearly elections are normally held in the spring, but because of the pandemic, 2020-2021 elections were held this past August.  SGA encourages everyone to participate.  Rebecca Luketic gave some great benefits to joining, One of the best decisions I made was to join Student Government.  Ive made so many great connections with people, that will lead me to a very successful future.  I dont feel like Im just a number on campus, I have a voice to use for change.
