Students’ Association Congress passed two resolutions at its Wednesday meeting. The resolutions were to support the Locavore club’s plan to build a garden on campus and SA’s plan to conduct a student-wide survey.
Senior senator Scott Adrian, senior political science and communications major from Glendale, Calif., presented the resolution to support Locavore’s request to build a community garden in front of the library. He said the garden will raise awareness about the club and the benefits of eating locally grown foods.
Adrian said a bill should go before SA Congress in the next few weeks asking for funding to help Locavore with the project.
Junior senator Julianne Hart, junior political science major from Austin, presented a different resolution to support a new student survey. She said in the past SA has compiled a survey asking students questions about key issues on campus. Students were last surveyed three years ago, and this survey would be used to update last survey’s answers and gather information on how students feel about certain issues affecting them.
SA president Sam Palomares said the survey will be sent to the student body in November, after SA finalizes the questions and budget for survey incentives.
He said the survey will feature questions regarding the dance policy, recycling, the attendance policy, meal plan issues, the advertisement policy, service learning, intramurals and social clubs.
