SGA meeting: ‘Recyclemania’ and Spring Weekend

By Joe Pinter, @JPinter93

ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. (Jan 28) — At its biweekly meeting, the St. Bonaventure University Student Government Association discussed a campus recycling campaign and Spring Weekend, among other things.

Tread Lightly members Katrina Teeter and JW Cook started off the meeting discussing Recyclemania, which begins Feb. 2.

The campaign will raise awareness for recycling and try to raise the recycling amount to 25 percent.

There are many misconceptions about what is recyclable, the officers said. Any sort of cardboard, paper, plastic, glass, metal, or food containers — even pizza boxes — are acceptable.

The campus club will host a garbage collection day on March 19 to demonstrate what is recyclable.

Afterward, sophomore class officer Rose Brown announced the sophomore class and Alumni Services are partnering to bring three or four Bonaventure alumni to speak about their experiences finding employment after graduation. The event will take place Feb. 6 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Quick Arts Center.

The Bona Venture, WSBU, Medical Emergency Response Team, Campus Activities Board, Intramurals, and officers of each individual class gave updates on their past semester and plans for the new semester.

Campus Activities Board then discussed its Spring Weekend budget, which has been slashed from $30,000 to $15,000. Its general budget has been cut from $80,000 to $60,000 due to less money going towards the student activity fee that each student pays. CAB said it is desperately trying to find more money, but at this point don’t expect Spring Weekend, which is April 25-26, to be as big as year’s past.

SGA members additionally said they are working for bigger budgets for all the campus clubs.

Club presentation highlights:

*The BV has cut its opinion section down to one page to keep it Bonaventure-related

*There are 30 tickets left for the Sabres-Penguins bus trip on Feb.5

*The freshman class is hosting a glow dance in the Rathskeller on Feb. 1

*Renovations to the bathrooms of Robinson and Falconio Halls should begin in the summer and be completed by next fall

*The junior class is selling Bonaventure car magnets and “Kiss Me I’m a Bonnie” shirts. Details for junior prom are still being worked out

*The senior class still has yet to decide on a class gift
