The SGA Senate held the first of two scheduled meet-and-greet sessions on Friday. The event allowed constituents to meet with their senators from 1-3 p.m. and ask questions as well as eat complimentary doughnuts.

“Basically, we are leaving the floor open for people to come and go as they please, share coffee and doughnuts with their senators, and really get to know them and the legislation that we are working to pass,” said event organizer, Resha Swanson, a junior who is double majoring in social work and Spanish. “This event really helps us with our transparency.” 

Constituents felt that the event provided clarity as well.

“They are easily approachable,” said Maddy Kalady, sophomore and athletic training major.  “[I have no problem] being able to go to them for whatever I need if I have any questions”

The next and final Senate meet-and-greet session will be held on Friday, Nov. 17 from 1-3 p.m.
