    Chancellor Victor Boschini spoke about new buildings coming to campus and a potential raise in tuition during the Tuesday Student Government Association meeting.

    Boschini said the Board of Trustees will meet within the next week and announce the tuition rate on Nov. 13.

    “You should probably assume that tuition will probably go up every year,” Boschini said to the SGA House representatives and student body officers.

    The Board will decide the rate of the potential tuition increase in their meeting, Boschini said.

    Construction on a new residence hall and a parking garage near the Physical Plant will begin in January 2013, Boschini said.

    Once the parking garage is completed in 2014, the Greek area will begin renovation, Boschini said.

    Two new residence halls near the intersection of Stadium Drive and West Berry Street are intended to be for upperclassmen, he said.

    Boschini also discussed the Academy of Tomorrow renovations near the library.

    The candidates for student body officer positions also gave their stump speeches to the SGA House. Each candidate then answered about five minutes worth of questions from SGA House members.

    Vice President for Operations Josh Simpson announced that free testing materials like blue books and Scantrons will be available in the library. Simpson said this would begin next semester.

    Finance Committee chairman Zach Madel also announced that SGA will allocate $2,250 to the men’s club soccer team, which advanced to nationals in Memphis, Tenn.
