The Student Government Association (SGA) hosted its weekly open meeting today. All members of the Wilmington College community are invited and encouraged to attend these meetings as it is a direct form of communication with the student government.
Due to the closure of Wilmington College’s main campus, SGA will now livestream its open meetings Tuesdays at 11:30 a.m. via their Instagram account (@wc_sga). They will take questions from the public by using the livestream’s chat feature.
Below are the topics presented by the SGA board at the March 31 meeting:
Kaleb Hubner, the vice president of administration, was absent.
Connor Heck, the vice president of faculty, alumni, and trustees, reported that she is working on her transition into office.
Ariana Riccardi, the vice president of SGA, reported that the Student Senate met yesterday. They will have meetings Mondays at 8 p.m. via Zoom, an online resource for video conference calls. Senate meetings are open; anyone who wishes to join should contact Riccardi for the Zoom link. Applications for the next academic year’s senate will be due May 1. Riccardi also reported that the senate talked about its goals for the remainder of the semester.
Logan Schroer, the president of SGA, reported that he is finalizing his transition into office. He is scheduling one on one meetings with the rest of the SGA board to assist in their transitions.
