Campus leaders excited for year

From concerts and a voter registration drive to a human regurgitator, campus leaders are working hard to bring exciting events to campus this semester.

Student Government Association (SGA) Executive President Dan Scapardine said SGA’s priorities this year include a voter registration drive, co-sponsorships with clubs on campus and having a “stronger presence on campus,” in addition to SGA’s regular events such as Finals Fest.

“This year we have a lot of things exciting things to look forward to,” he said.

Leo Acevedo, executive director of the Student Finance Board (SFB), said SFB is planning more events this year, financed by the increase in the Student Activities Fee.

“Since we have so much more money to work with this year, we’re hoping to have a lot more events,” Acevedo said.

Katerina Gkionis, director of College Union Board (CUB), said CUB has several events planned, including a breakdance show and a human regurgitator – someone who swallows and regurgitates objects – for Halloween.

“We have a lot of good stuff going on,” she said. “We pretty much have September booked. It’s going to be a good year.”
