Chancellor Victor Boschini has teamed up with the Student Government Association to hold a town hall meeting today at 12:30 p.m. in the BLUU private dining rooms.

The objective of the meeting is to strategize future plans for TCU as well as give students the opportunity to voice any concerns they may have with university affairs.

Popular topics previously brought to the table at meetings include tuition raises, student organizations, construction and overall campus culture.

“I’m definitely looking forward to talking about construction and parking on and around campus,” said child development major Milla Brusenhan  It’s awesome there’s so much growth going on at TCU, but the amount and timing of construction needs to be addressed.”

Past attendance has been low. Last year only four students were present and, beyond that, meetings typically average around eight students showing up.

 

In response, the SGA has made efforts to better advertise the event. While majority of students last year were never informed about the town hall meeting, this year a campus wide email was sent out listing the meeting at the top of ‘what2do@TCU’.

“I found out about the event because I got an email about it. Otherwise, I probably never would have heard about the town hall meeting and wouldn’t plan on going,” Brusenhan said.

Chancellor Boschini believes student opinion is imperative in order to move forward with decision making processes.

“I think every kid on campus should be at this town hall meeting. It is the most important thing on campus happening right now,” Boschini said.
