The special committees of the Student Government Association met in the Education and Human Services building Monday to go over objectives of each committee and what they intend to accomplish throughout the year.
In the Spirits and Traditions committee, led by student senator and Rochester Hills sophomore Karen Nixon, 26 house representatives and senators discussed a plan to start an SGA team for the Homecoming festivities that will be happening next month.
“The SGA has never had its own team for homecoming, so we’re hoping to put one together this year on top of helping the other RSOs work out their Homecoming projects,” Nixon said.
In the Student Services Committee, student senator and Adrian sophomore Ashlea Phenicie proposed a safe sex program, aimed at providing students with easy access to free condoms around campus.
“The University of Michigan recently started a program similar to what we want to do,” Phenicie said. “It’s a work in progress that we would like to see happen for the safety of the students.”
Proposals requiring funding that require SGA approval will be voted on at the next general board meeting next Monday, Sept. 23 at 7 p.m. in the French Auditorium.
