SGA hosted their first meeting of the 2024 Spring semester on Friday, Jan. 19, via Microsoft Teams. This meeting was an introduction on new and returning student clubs and organization activities.

To kickoff student engagement for the semester, club roundups will take place from Jan. 22 to Jan. 23 on the Floyd, Marietta and Paulding campuses. Cartersville will run through today, Jan. 25th.

Club Round-Up events occur at the start of each fall and spring semester at all locations, providing students with the chance to discover more about the various groups available.

In addition, preview day was held on Wednesday Jan. 24 on the Floyd and Cartersville campus for current students. This was similar to the club roundup event, as students had the opportunity to attend and gather information on various student engagement opportunities.

A few new clubs have been introduced to students such as Rotaract, Young Democrats and College Conservatives. Leaders are encouraging students to join and participate in these developing clubs.

Students who are interested in running for SGA president should be on the lookout, as applications open on Feb. 1. SGA leaders will review applications and conduct interviews, leading up to the current SGA president’s end of term, which will be July 1.

Students can go to the SGA Elections page to learn more about who is running and vote.

On Feb. 22, the Art Club will host a ‘Talk with the Artist’ event at 5 p.m. on the Cartersville campus. The guest speaker will be veteran artist Bill Rembert.

The Psychology Club will host a student led conference on April 12. This conference will showcase student academic talents in research related to the field of psychology.

To be considered for this conference, students must submit a proposal of research from one of their social sciences classes (History, Criminal Justice, Sociology, etc.) and relate it to the field of psychology. This must be submitted by March 22.

Club leaders will review all submitted proposals and vote on March 27 of selected participants. An email will be sent to those selected to display their work at the conference.

Although the semester has just begun, students have numerous opportunities to get involved and present their academic and extracurricular talents.
