Student government elections set to begin

As Student Government heads into election season, hopeful potential members were eager to attend SG’s general body meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 11. President Tyler Liberty welcomed interested students running for positions.

Liberty continued to give updates on the vice president of Student Affairs search. Although many students did not attend last week’s open forum, Liberty encouraged the general body to attend upcoming forums, as feedback from students is crucial.

Alex Brown, vice president of Governmental Affairs, announced that the final list of student organizations facing the possibility of de-recognition by Student Activities has been set. The list of clubs will be discussed at this week’s SG meeting, Brown said.

The semester’s first Town Gown meeting was very productive, Liberty said. These meetings have the goal of “improving communication between the Township of Ewing and The College of New Jersey,” according to the College’s website. At the meetings, both members of the College and Ewing community can voice any concerns pertaining to the relationship between the campus and town. Disruptive students walking through Ewing late at night is often one of the concerns voiced by Ewing residents.

“Since the start of the school year, we have already had eight mailboxes been knocked down and broken, which is a little bit ridiculous if you think about it,” Liberty said. “This coincides only when TCNJ students are in session.”

The date for the next Town Gown meeting has not been scheduled.

“We do live in a community,” Liberty said. “We need our relationship with Ewing to work.”
