At the Student Government Association meeting on Oct. 6, members addressed the rapidly increasing number of freshmen at EC each year.
SGA agreed that there are not enough resources at the college to sustain the burgeoning number of students and talked about constraining the sizes of the future freshmen classes, though no ideas were passed around about how this would be done.
One member of SGA also expressed concern about the rise in the number of drinking tickets handed out over the past couple of years. Members of SGA agreed that action would eventually need to be taken to raise awareness around campus about underage drinking.
There was also talk about the possibility of starting a “man camp” on campus, which would cater to EC male students by teaching them about integrity. This idea stems from growing concerns that the male students of EC are not treating other people, especially female students, with respect.
Members also discussed extending the weekend hours in the Roost so that there is no longer a gap of time between the lunch hours in the cafe and the dinner hours in the Roost.
Along with extending the Roost hours, SGA members talked about setting up a better communication system between EC students and Chartwells staff members so that students get served the food they actually want to eat.
No method of communication was proposed other than leaving notes in the Chartwells “comments box” in the cafe.
The Oct. 13 meeting was cancelled due to the Homecoming dance competition.
