In the Thick of Things

SGA is smack in the middle of a busy time…we urge you to come and tell us any challenges students can fix at Hood! Our NEW email is If you want to post on the LED Electronic Message sign in Whitaker, then email us with all of the information and we will get it up there for you!

A few things to update everyone on:

1. We are working on a respect and honor initiative that will carry on for the years to come. We believe that respect and honor are two key components to Hood, along with the four pillars. We are exciting to get this moving. If you want to be a part of this initiative, there is a meeting at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 21 in AD 122 with our Campus Services committee, which is taking the lead on this project.

2. We do have a student on the first-year seminar pilot committee and they have approved 13 first-year seminar classes. Though they are approved, changes can still be made. All classes are optional to take for incoming first-year’s this upcoming 2012-2013 school year.

3. The President’s Roundtable was last week and it was very successful. Area Coordinator Danielle Weaver presented a fantastic leadership exercise, where a timeline was written by each leader to figure out what legacy you will leave. We will have another one of these in the near future, so keep an eye out.

4. SGA is having its first fundraiser! This WEDNESDAY, Feb. 22 from 5-8 p.m. at Buffalo Wild Wings. There is the Blazin’ Hot Challenge, which is a competition where you must eat 12 of BWW’s hottest wings in six minutes. If you want to do it, or have a faculty/staff member in mind for it, email so we can sign you/them up!

We are still working on reviving a Hood Tradition, it seems like Big Sib/Little Sib is a popular one, and we are going to be working with the Dean in trying to make that happen. If you have any more input on a tradition, let me know at or in the comments here!

There will be some exciting news this upcoming week about a project that SGA will be presenting…hope you all are waiting to hear for it!  Thanks for reading!
