SGA approves funding for CPR certification
By Phil McMullin
The Student Government Association approved a $1,500 request on Oct. 20 from the Aspiring Health Professionals club to host a CPR certification course.
The certification course will be held on Nov. 15, and will be split into two sessions. Students taking the course will be charged $5. This money will go back to SGA.
SGA also approved the constitution of the new Music Appreciation Club (M.A.C). According to the constitution, the club is being created in order to “establish a common place for musical exploration and appreciation.”
The constitution for HerCampus Framingham went before the committee for a second time. The club’s constitution states that HerCampus Framingham will aim to “provide students at Framingham a new and fun resource through online publications.”
SGA also discussed bringing Greek life to campus. Greek life would entail establishing fraternities and sororities at FSU. SGA President Dan Costello will be meeting with Lorretta Holloway, vice president of enrollment and student development, to discuss the logistics, specifically campus policy and available resources.
SGA is also exploring the option of opening the Athletic Center earlier in the morning. The gym currently opens at 7 a.m. during the week, 10 a.m. on Saturdays, and noon on Sundays. The administration is keeping track of how many students are at the entrance as soon as it is open in the morning to see if the change is necessary. Administrators are also taking into consideration the added expense of keeping the Athletic Center open for additional hours.
