SGA update: preview days, games, celebrations

The Student Government Association (SGA) held their most recent meeting on Feb. 1 to discuss upcoming events, club activities and initiatives to enhance campus student life and engagement.

The Floyd and Cartersville campuses are preparing for upcoming Preview Days. Scheduled for Feb. 10 at Cartersville and Feb. 24 at Floyd, both from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Preview Days are an open invitation to showcase student clubs to prospective students.

In a thrilling twist to the semester’s activities, a Zombies vs. Humans game will take place shortly before spring break. Volunteers are needed to help with the event, and a short video explaining the rules will soon be released.

In honor of Black History Month, a series of events across campuses will spotlight the cultural and historical contributions through art, writings and movies.

An Open Mic event will celebrate the works of notable Black writers on Feb. 15 at 12:30 p.m. at the Floyd Campus Library.

Springing Forward with SGA

Movie screenings will include the 2023 version of ‘The Color Purple’ on Feb. 20 at 2:00 p.m. at the Marietta Campus, ‘Rustin’ on Feb. 21 at 2:00 p.m., and ‘All Dirt Roads Taste of Salt’ on Feb. 22 at 2:00 p.m., which will be available at both the Paulding and Floyd Campuses.

Mental Health Matters events, scheduled to take place across all campuses from Feb. 6 through Feb. 8, are also on the calendar. Students will have the chance to interact with counselors and enjoy complimentary M&Ms while gaining awareness and understanding of the importance of mental health and well-being.

SGA is also considering offering certification programs for suicide prevention and LGBTQ+ support to equip students with the skills to assist peers effectively.

Furthermore, the Cartersville campus library plans to conduct an active shooter drill. This critical exercise is part of a broader initiative to ensure the safety and preparedness of the campus community in emergencies. While the date has yet to be determined, students and faculty should stay tuned to campus announcements regarding this important drill.

Students and clubs planning to participate in Preview Days, those available to volunteer for Zombies vs. Humans games and those interested in certification programs for suicide prevention and LGBTQ+ should contact Student Engagement for further details.
