During Tuesday’s brief Student Government Association meeting, one resolution was passed.  

SGA passed Resolution 3-15-F, to Adopt a Senate-Wide “New Business” Policy. This resolution makes the process for writing bills easier and creates a standardized process for it.

During his report, SGA President Jay Todd Richey said he would attend a listening tour on Nov. 11 at the Owensboro campus to hear the needs and wants of regional campuses. 

Richey said he also wants to bring Robert King, president of Council on Postsecondary Education, to WKU to discuss the need for more student funding on higher education.

The “Dub the Pub” competition to name the pub going in Garrett Conference Center is still ongoing and will close on Oct. 20. A little over 50 submissions have been made so far. SGA will pick the best five to seven names when the competition is over. 

SGA will then choose three for students to choose from. The winner of the contest will be the new official name of the pub. 

The author of the name that wins might also receive a prize from SGA. 

During her report, the Academic Affairs Committee Chair Kate Hart, said a Hispanic Festival will be hosted at Centennial Mall on Oct. 15 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
