With numerous changes happening at Radford University this semester, the Student Government Association (SGA) has made some changes by acquiring a new face as president this academic year – Christopher Davis.
Davis, an economics senior, has been a member of SGA since his sophomore year and served as the Chief of Staff in his junior year.“I see SGA as an organization that is a bridge to the students and the administrators on campus, which is beneficial on both spectrums.”
“I am glad to be the listening ears of the students on campus so that the students can express some of their concerns to [SGA],” Davis said. “I see SGA as an organization that is a bridge to the students and the administrators on campus, which is beneficial on both spectrums.”
“We want to be more innovative and creative to the student body by connecting to all students on social media,” Davis said. “We are also creating a student engagement tracking system, which will allow SGA to keep count of who is contacting them on a daily basis.”
The Senate plans to focus more on recycling for off-campus students.
Another popular event that will be returning, according to Davis, is “What Do You Want Wednesdays,” which will be a virtual event for students to provide opinions and concerns to SGA.“We want to show the students that SGA is here to support them in every way, no matter what background you come from, and we are a Highlander Family.”
Davis said, “A resolution we are working on is a Black Lives Matters movement, due to the current events that have been occurring. We want to show the students that SGA is here to support them in every way, no matter what background you come from, and we are a Highlander Family.”
Another resolution Davis and the rest of SGA is working on is a new Operational Education Resources program. This program will allow students to buy textbooks online at a reasonable price and be made by the faculty members to make classes easier.
If students are interested in getting involved with SGA, they can reach out to Davis by email at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Students can also visit radford.edu/content/sga/home.html.
