The Student Government Association senate passed a resolution Tuesday to support a requirement for incoming freshmen to receive meningitis vaccinations. 

Resolution 6-15-F, Resolution to Support Meningococcal Meningitis Vaccinations for Incoming Freshmen Who Reside in On-Campus Housing, was passed unanimously. 

The resolution supports a requirement of meningitis vaccinations for incoming freshmen who reside in on-campus housing, beginning with the class of 2020.

 Bill 10-15-F,  to Adopt an Amendment to the Bylaws of the Student Government Association, also passed unanimously.

During his report SGA President Jay Todd Richey said the listening tours ended with success, and he received a lot of feedback from the regional campuses.

“It’s very hard to put into words how very different these campuses are,” Richey said. 

The Herald will have more about Tuesday’s SGA meeting in the Thursday edition.
