Goals for this Semester

At the beginning of the year, our association mapped out our mission and goals for this year. Now that we have one semester under our belt, we wanted to refresh everyone on the goals we have and how we are fulfilling them.

Goal #1 – School Spirit 

SGA wants to ensure ISU students are proud to be a Redbird every day. We are creating programs with other organizations in order to bring students together in one place, celebrating ISU and what the institution believes in.

One of the many projects that SGA wishes to accomplish, which we believe will help foster school spirit, is to place a Reggie the Redbird statue on the quad.


Goal #2 – Tradition
As representatives of the student body, we want to maintain the current traditions of SGA and ISU, as well as create new traditions that will far outlast our current association.

A fairly new tradition that SGA has implemented is Club Milner Dance Party during finals week, where students gather together to have a dance party/study break in order to relieve stress. Another popular tradition through SGA is the Pack the Place for sporting and other events around campus.


Goal #3 – Outreach
As representatives of the study body, we acknowledge that constant communication with students, faculty, staff, as well as Normal community members is important to move forward. We want to ensure others are aware of what SGA and ISU has to offer.

Our association volunteers and attends many events throughout the year because we value supporting and giving back to the community. This also sets an example for all ISU students to also volunteer and become more civically engaged and invested in our community.


Those are our goals for the semester, but we want to hear yours! What else do you want to see from SGA this semester? We want to know your comments and concerns, as well as answer any questions you may have. We are an association by students for the students.

Please contact President Andy Manno at or visit for more information about SGA.
