The Students’ Association was allocated a budget of $2,000 from Student Congress to update the six rooms in their office.
Dylan Benac, SA president and senior political science major from Boerne, said that the office is mainly focusing on repainting.
“It has been years since the office has been redone,” said Benac. “We want the office to resemble much more of a professional space.”
Benac said the office has been neglected in the university’s initiative of “keeping up with the times.”
He said the current walls have a unique shade of powder blue with mixture of orange in the background, which is not aesthetically pleasing to his or other SA member’s eyes.
“There is a policy on campus that students can’t free-paint our office,” said Benac. “We have to follow those rules.”
The new colors have yet to be approved, causing the process to be prolonged.
Benac said that as far as furniture, they plan to use whatever the university has to offer, which is the furnishings that offices plan to get rid of after they are replaced.
JP Ralston, SA treasurer and senior finance major from Plano, is also waiting for the office to receive a makeover.
“Ideas are crushed and destroyed with the colors on our walls,” said Ralston. “We are looking for a modern standard where ideas can thrive.”
Ralston said the office has regressed over the years and is in need of an update.
“We hope to make this a better place for planning, organizing and serving the student body,” said Ralston.
