More flex for meal exchange, free fun events, more Cabrini spirit and a new Cavalier mascot are all goals of Cabrini’s Student Government Association, better known as SGA. SGA is a student group whose main goal is to be the voice of the student body and focus on school spirit here on campus.
“This year we’re doing things to increase spirit because people think no one cares about Cabrini,” Lauren Galonski, SGA president and senior psychology and sociology major, said.
SGA has representatives in every major meeting here on campus to be the voice of the students. SGA always welcomes students to come to members of the organization with questions, complaints, ideas and feedback on campus activities in and out of the classroom.
“We would like students to know we want to hear their concerns and address their concerns,” Galonski said.
The goal of SGA now is creating and building school spirit and raising money for the senior class gift. The senior class will give back to Cabrini in what is called the senior class gift, which SGA raises money for.
“We are trying to get people to come out to games, wear white and blue and support our athletics,” Galonski said.
SGA has put together a contest for students to recreate the Cabrini Cavalier mascot. Anyone is welcomed to participate in designing and helping SGA make this a successful project for students.
“We are relaunching our mascot. We are trying to make it up to students and get the student body involved. SGA is trying to create opportunities for spirit on campus and support our athletics,” Melissa Carr, SGA member and senior psychology major, said.
“SGA is open to all students. We have elections in the spring, any student run. Students can nominate others to the class board, any student can do it,” Galonski said.
If students are interested in SGA or are looking to find out more information, SGA has a Facebook page and is also on the Cabrini Web site.
“We have a lot of media sources. We have a Facebook and advertisement around campus. We are working on getting our own section on Cabrini One for our activities,” Carr said.
SGA serves with faculty, alum, administration, public safety and student body. Feel free to voice your opinions and work for school spirit and making your college experience interactive with SGA.
