‘I love Texas A&M, but…’

 
 

Just a few days after the Student Government Association fall elections, SGA held a meet-and-greet event in the Memorial Student Center on Monday, gathering student input to try to better the Aggie experience.
Handing out free pizza to attract students, SGA representatives asked students to write on white boards “I love Texas A&M but…” and add something they would like to see changed at A&M.
Student Body President Kyle Kelly said the goal of the event was to hear different students voices. The idea came from conversations with students from other SEC schools.
“The hope is to communicate to campus as best we can about different issues to improve A&M in big ways and small ways as current students and as student leaders,” Kelly said. “And so the best way — the most creative ideas and the best way to represent our constituents, the student body — is to hear from them. This is a fun time for us to take initiative and come to a main part of campus and give a free lunch and ask for different ideas to improve [Texas A&M].”
Communications Executive Vice President Jeff Claybrook said SGA keeps track of the responses.
“We’ve seen a lot of things, some regarding transportation services, parking, things with tuition — some other things as well,” Claybrook said. “Parking, buses and tuition — those have been the top three.”
Chief of Staff Connor Adams said the ideas will be presented to the Student Senate, which will in turn use the ideas to formulate legislation to attempt to carry out the desires of the students.
Kelly said SGA plans to hold the event multiple times throughout the semester.
SGA representatives encouraged students Monday to write about aspects of campus that need improvement on white boards in the MSC.
