Alums seek SGA funding

The Student Government Association is hard at work assigning new projects, finishing up old ones and making stronger alliances with the Castleton Alumni Board.
At their first meeting, board Vice President  Ceil Hunt approached the SGA for help. With hopes of building stronger connections between the two groups, as well as getting more involved with students throughout their Castleton career, Hunt asked the SGA for suggestions and funding to help bridge the gap.
Currently, the Alumni Board provides first-year students with I.D. holders and lanyards. In addition, the board is responsible for the Senior Social that takes place every year.
“What we’re looking for is $600 toward funding the costs of the landyards and holders,” said Hunt, “but we are also hoping for suggestions and opportunities to be more involved with students in their sophomore and junior years.”
Hunt says the Board is not only open to being more involved, but hopes that the SGA can offer suggestions and opportunities to do so.
In other news, the SGA    is working hard on completing some key projects before the snow flies. Some curious and fun projects being put forth include a new DVDnow machine, additions to the ski park area between Hoff and Wheeler Halls, and the possibility of a bottle redemption area on campus.
In addition to these projects, the SGA has set out to discover why so many blue security poles around campus are out.  
“Did any one notice that there are like, I don’t know at least four of the security poles down? Especially near Hoff?” asked Corrie Keener, SGA vice president,  in their meeting before October Break.
The group echoed her sentiment and freshman delegate Catie Wielgas will be contacting Public Safety and Bob Godlewski for answers.
“It’s important because it’s a safety thing,” said delegate Andre Coutu.
