Can You Last the Whole 10 Minutes?

The Student Government Association is here to help you make those ten minutes the most enjoyable minutes of Spring Finals Week 2013.Image

SGA is hosting the bi-annual Club Milner Spring Finals Week Dance Party on Sunday, May 5 from 10-10:10 p.m. DJ Club Soda (Cody Walker) will be providing the tunes for everyone to get their groove on to. 

All students are welcome to attend our dance party! We will gather outside of Milner Plaza 10 p.m. and once the music begins playing everyone start dancing. When the music stops, all students must return to their study areas or return home. 


A couple important things to note: Please do not leave your personal belongings unattended during the event for risk of theft, please be safe when coming and going from this, and please be courteous to others while dancing. Also, anyone who is under the influence of any substance, such as illegal drugs or alcohol, will be removed from this event and further action may be taken.

Follow @ilstusga on Twitter and use #clubmilner leading up to and during the event for event updates announcements.

How long have you been a member of SGA?

One year in the Emerging Leaders Program and two years in an elected position.

What is your favorite part about being a member of SGA?

Being able to review and enact policies that enhance the lives of Illinois State students is fulfilling. SGA members come to me for guidance on writing and reviewing their resolutions and bills, which is also one of my favorite aspects of being President of the Assembly.

What is the best SGA related moment this year?

Helping to write, edit and pass the bereavement policy this year. The bereavement policy grants students the ability to receive excused absences in the event a student’s family member passes away during an academic semester. This policy was an exciting moment because this was a perfect example of how much SGA can affect every student’s ISU experience.

How has SGA helped you become an overall better leader?

SGA has helped me learn how to balance multiple tasks at once, overseeing all members of the legislative branch, working together with committees and serving as a primary mediator when conflicts and issues arise.
