SGA discusses listening tours, new Colonnade classes

The Student Government Association will begin the listening tours to extended campuses in mid-November.   

During his report in Tuesday’s meeting, SGA President Jay Todd Richey reminded SGA members about the listening tours on WKU’s extended campuses. 

Richey said the first tour is at the Glasgow campus on Nov. 10 at 11:30 a.m. The second is at the Owensboro campus on Nov. 11 at 2 p.m., and the last tour is at the Elizabethtown/Ft. Knox campus on Nov. 12 at 12 p.m.

Richey is going to these regional campuses to discuss the issues and/or concerns that might be on regional campuses and what SGA can do to help. All students are welcome to be a part of the conversation.

“The idea is that we are having a presence at our regional campuses to answer any questions a student might have,” Richey said.

Several other topics were mentioned throughout the meeting. 

One topic was the addition of new Colonnade classes. The classes include Political Science 365, Government Politics of the Middle East, Music Anthropology and Folk Studies 257, Intro to World Music, Journalism 310 Media Diversity, Philosophy 212 and Korean 102. These classes will be offered next semester. 

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

An earlier version of this story listed the Glasgow campus time as 11:30 p.m. It is actually 11:30 a.m. This error has been corrected. The Herald regrets the error.
