Students want better wi-fi connections and additional on-campus dining options, they told the Student Government Association at the Spring Town Hall meeting on Tuesday that drew over 100 students.
SGA President Timothy Hoffman also said that commuters who attended expressed a desire for the campus to be more inviting to non-resident students.
An initiative in the works by SGA has been to make it easier for commuters to swipe into dorm buildings with their own student IDs.
“We will work to host an open dialogue with commuters to get more concrete information about the concerns facing commuters so that our campus is open for all students,” Hoffman said.
Despite having to move the event from the Green to the Living Room due to inclement weather, Public Relations Committee chair Savannah Watts said the event exceeded expectations.
“We definitely loved getting to hear people’s concerns on a more personal level,” said Watts, a sophomore. “I look forward to hosting more events like this in the future.”
Students who attended also were treated to ice cream sundaes.
Freshman Ellen Juracek said she thought the Town Hall was an effective way to get to know the new senators.
“It was a great way to meet the SGA representatives and for students to express their concerns,” Juracek said.
