SGA Rundown: Supporting commuters and Biola community

Senators discuss community events and resources on campus.

The Student Government Association discussed supporting commuters and community events on campus. This week senators considered the possibility of allowing commuter students to fill out an application to secure a parking space. 

COMMUTER PARKING PLAN

Under this plan, students who travel more than 45 minutes to campus would have priority parking. The committee proposed setting aside 10 parking spaces per lot in Lots A, B and C. 

Senators considered encouraging on-campus students to park in the garage rather than in the lots next to dorms in order to free up additional parking spaces for commuters. Ideas to simplify the process included adding a section for parking to the Campus Security app, in which students clock in and out of their parking spaces after two hours.

HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH

Senators examined how to serve Latino Biolans during Hispanic Heritage Month. SGA discussed Hermanos and BELLA, which are Biola affinity groups for Latino men and women. Senators recapped Fiesta Latina, a university event which celebrates Latin American culture.

SGA HOUR

Senators discussed changes to SGA Hour. Senators have consolidated resources into two tables, one for north campus outside the Student Union Building and the other for south campus outside the Hope basketball courts. SGA Hour is typically outside dorms from 9-10 p.m. after Singspiration but times have changed to 7:45-8:45 p.m. and 8:45-10:45 p.m.
