Spring Town Hall meeting

On Wednesday, April 28, FGSA hosted our final Town Hall meeting of the school year.  The turnout was larger than expected, but we had plenty of pizza for everyone. To kick-off the meeting, the Social Chairs announced their upcoming events and reminded us to buy tickets to the Fisher Formal on May 14th.

After the announcement, FGSA asked for feedback regarding the two-day course evaluation panel comprised of 2nd year students. Overall, the event seemed to be a major success and there was overwhelming support for us to host the event next year, even if online course evaluations are available.

Following this discussion, FGSA updated the class on our progress with implementing a course evaluation system. A few weeks ago, we discovered that The Undergraduate Student Government recently purchased a course evaluation system which could be the solution to our problem. We have requested a meeting with the USG to determine if there is a way to customize the system to better cater to our needs.

The conversation then shifted to a few other projects that FGSA is working on which included getting picnic tables for the Fisher courtyard, adding a copy machine to the computer lab, and improving the room reservation system. After a brief overview of these projects, FGSA opened the floor to questions and comments. The overarching theme is that FGSA should work towards improving alumni relations and find a way to improve the room reservation system. Other suggestions included purchasing a fax machine for the computer lab, developing alternatives to expensive course packets, and getting an ATM machine in Gerlach Hall.

Our next meeting with Dean Wruck is on May 17th and we’ll address these issues with her during that meeting. In the meantime, let us know if you have any other suggestions.
