Student Government
Student Governenment is making significant additions to its website to help entertain students' questions and concerns in reaction to the announcement of the housing lottery time slots.

Musical talent at the College will be showcased at upcoming event “Showtime,” which was announced in this week’s Student Government meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 15.

SG Committee for Equity and Diversity is co-sponsoring with Black Student Union to hold this event at 8 p.m. on Feb. 24 in the Library Auditorium.

Junior marketing and Spanish double major and SG vice president for advancement Christina Kopka announced a new addition to SG’s website.

“Speak at TCNJ” will allow immediate online feedback from students starting on Feb. 23.

The addition to the website will be right after the results of the housing lottery are announced and people are going to want to complain, Kopka said.

Freshman president and chemistry and secondary education double major Brian Garsh also announced the event “Overcoming Obstacles” as part of Mental Health Awareness Week.

The event will feature motivational speaker Mike Donahue, who began speaking to students about bullying and mental health after his mother tried to kill him as a child.

The event is scheduled for March 19     and will tentatively be held in the Library Auditorium.

SG is also encouraging all students to be aware of the “21 Days of Answers” posted on the entrances of Eickhoff Atrium and the Library Café.

SG is making a series of numbered signs providing answers to common misconceptions and questions from students regarding various matters at the College.

SG is taking questions submitted through Twitter and Facebook and is encouraging all students with questions to contribute.

Kelly Kosch, senior English and secondary education double major, announced to SG that the official date for Relay for Life is April 13 and encouraged all students to attend. “We want to raise a lot of money,” Kosch said.

SG announced again this week that it is currently running a campus-wide clothing drive through March 14 and is seeking donations from all student organizations.

The truck will be arriving at the College on March 15 to pick up the clothes and take them to the Salvation Army. SG will accept clothes in any condition.
