State of the University
Student Union Ballroom
The State of the University is an event held by SGA, as a chance for the students to talk face-to-face with University Leadership to give them the ability to directly ask questions and share concerns. The main goal of this event is to open up a dialogue between community members and the University. That being said, this event will not be as formal as the title might imply. To make the event the best it can be, we have decided that speeches and introductions will be shortened so there is more time for conversation and discussion. Afterward, the University Police Department will give a brief presentation on safety as well.
