The student government association will hold its first annual networking event on Tuesday, April 16, to inform clubs and Greek organizations on the ways they can help each other with philanthropic and campus events.
“A lot of clubs assume that they can’t work with Greek Life and vice versa,” Adam Pilzer, the SGA parliamentarian for this academic year, said. “The event is for the executive board officers of the clubs and executive officers of fraternities and sororities on campus.”
The event was created to address an issue that SGA representatives have noticed throughout this academic year. According to Pilzer, many clubs had issues filing paperwork and meeting minimum requirements for the events they wanted to hold on campus.
“We want them to know that we are here,” Pilzer said. “We want to work with them, and we want all the clubs and organizations and Greek life to meet each other so that there can be more collaboration events next year.”
The event, which is open to executive members of their respective organizations, will be held in the Patron’s Lounge in the Tilles Center during common hour.
In addition to the networking event, SGA elections will be held at the end of April for the 2019-2020 academic year. Students who would like to get involved in student government need to apply online or stop by the SGA Office in Hillwood Commons on the second floor for more details.
