The Student Government Association meeting began with a visit from Steve Rall, general manager of Bon Appétit, who explained new changes coming at the Caf and answered questions from senators. One of the new changes includes changing hours on the weekend, starting with dinner extending to 7 p.m. on Fridays rather than ending at 6:30 p.m. Lunch on Saturdays will extend to 2 p.m. rather than ending at 12:30 p.m. with the dinner hours remaining the same. On Sundays the lunch hour will end at 2:30 p.m. instead of 3:30 p.m. and dinner will open at 4 p.m. instead of 4:30 p.m.

Rall also discussed how the Caf hopes to have a pizza meal exchange modeled after Pieology, where students can pick as many toppings on a 12-inch pizza as they want with no additional cost. The Caf will provide students with the option to have the pizzas delivered on campus, in addition to picking them up in the Caf, and ordering them through Tapingo.

Katy Gutierrez, cross-cultural event coordinator for Student Programming and Activities and senior sociology major, came to share about upcoming SPA events. The first event Gutierrez mentioned included several events happening for Native American Heritage Month the week of Nov. 7-11. On Monday night, students can attend a documentary screening and a following question and answer time with Native Americans in the Andrews Banquet Hall at 7 p.m. Wednesday’s event includes a dinner at the Caf with authentic Native American recipes. On Thursday, students will sit at a table outside the Caf to answer questions on the Dakota access pipeline issue. Students will also have access to a special Snapchat filter on Thursday about the pipeline as well as a spot to take photos at the table. Gutierrez also hopes for a worship night lead by Native Americans on Thursday night, though plans remain unfinalized.

Following this, Gutierrez discussed Sola Soul, a night of hip-hop music, spoken word, a graffiti artist and Azusa Pacific’s step team. Derek Minor, a hip-hop artist with the same record label as Lecrae, will lead the event as the main artist.

The remaining hour of the meeting included senators reading the book “Every Good Endeavor” by Tim Keller together for the purpose of staff bonding.


Jessica Snow, SGA president, proposed for $1,500 to fund 300 student tickets for the men’s soccer Golden State Athletic Conference tournament on Nov. 10-12. The tickets are first come, first serve for the semi-final rounds of the games.


In a same-day vote, the senate passed Snow’s proposal for the GSAC soccer tickets in the full amount of $1,500 with a vote of 15-0-0. However, the senate failed to conduct a vote to have the same-day vote, as stated in their constitution.
