The University of Louisiana at Lafayette’s Student Government Association held a meeting on Monday, Feb. 3 at 5 p.m. in the Helma B. Constantine room.
SGA didn’t vote on any new appropriations, but the Finance Committee for SGA approved several requests for money which Treasurer Jonathan Adams said will be on the agenda for next week.
SGA Secretary for the Library Brett Crist, who is also the IT Manager for Edith Garland Dupré Library, brought up concerns students have had with the library’s computers, sourcing The Vermilion.
“We’ve done several things to address that article,” Crist said.
Crist said the library is making an effort to correct this with scheduled, daily restarts of all the computers in the library in hopes the computers that aren’t connected to printers will reconnect.
“So what we’re going to be doing now is automatic restarts at 7:30,” he said.
He also proposed a two-step logout process that would ask students if they experienced any problems with the computer they used.
SGA President Rachel Lautigar also said the library will be adding presentation practice rooms to the library with help from SGA.
There are still no SGA senators for UL Lafayette’s Graduate School.
SGA Graduate School President Rex Jones said this is likely due to the SGA’s meetings running at 5 p.m. when many of UL Lafayette’s graduate students have class.
“I’d like for this body, and the Rules and Ethics Committee as well, to consider ways that we can make exceptions for the reality that is graduate students and their academic circumstances,” Jones said.
