Hope you all are having a good week. Let me first thank everyone who traveled to Austin this weekend to support the Wildcats as they took on Texas. We appreciate you showing up in support of the team despite the cold and rain. You have also no doubt heard about the incidents at Stillwater over the weekend. We might be rivals when it comes to sports and academics, but we share a special bond with Oklahoma State as members of the Big 12 conference. I hope you will join Joe and I in extending our condolences to the victims and their families as they go through this difficult time.
Next week, members of SGA will host SGA Celebrates, a week-long series of events that will focus on increasing awareness and understanding about the work done by the Student Governing Association at K-State. Whether it’s learning about how SGA allocates privilege fees, the work we do with state and local governments, or how SGA works with over 475 student organizations on campus to enhance the student experience, join us to learn more about SGA and see how you can be a part of the experience.
Lastly, K-State prides itself on world-class initiatives that not only improve the lives of current students, but could also have a positive impact for generations to come. K-State’s Green Action Fund is one such initiative. The Green Action Fund has been allocated $45,000 to fund student-driven sustainability initiatives on campus. If you have an idea for a project that could lead to a better, more green environment on K-State’s campus, we would encourage you to apply for the fund through an online application at http://www.k-state.edu/sustainability/.
As usual, we appreciate any comments, concerns or criticism on Twitter through @KStateSBP_SBVP and firstname.lastname@example.org. Please feel free to reach out through either and give us the feedback we need to enhance your experience.
Thank you and Go ‘Cats,
Andy Hurtig, student body president
Joe Tinker, student body vice president
