The Student Government Association’s House of Representatives unanimously passed a resolution Tuesday supporting the establishment of a day for students to voice their opinions on how to change TCU for the better.
Improve TCU Day will be March 5, said Student Relations Committee chair Justin Brown, who introduced the resolution.
Brown said bulletin boards will be set up in the Brown-Lupton Student Center Lounge, Sadler Mall and outside of the Mary Couts Burnett Library. Students will write down ways in which they would improve TCU on a card and attach them to a bulletin board, and SGA representatives will collect the cards at the end of the day.
Brown said SGA members and interested faculty and staff will be encouraged to wear birthday party hats on Improve TCU Day, but the event won’t be specifically limited to SGA.
Any campus organization with the resources to help students should participate, Brown said.
“Now students can see that these are the people they need to talk to if they have issues,” he said.
Brown said the costs will be slightly more than $100, and the event will yield a lot more benefits for the university.
Thomas Pressly, SGA president, said he thinks Improve TCU Day is a great idea.
“Some of the best ideas that SGA has gone forth with haven’t been ones that student representatives have come up with, but what TCU students have come up with,” Pressly said.
The House also unanimously passed a bill allowing $500 worth of funds to be used toward sending the TCU Music Educators Organization to the Texas Music Educators Association Convention.
Fine Arts representative Myra Mills spoke in favor of the funding.
She cited the large number of students attending this year’s TMEA convention as the reason that the Music Educators Organization is seeking the additional funding.
