SGA Urges Student Participation in Commons Planning

Author: [no author name found]

Transition and change are difficult. Construction is loud and the lines at Ross are long, challenging us to see how this is creating a better community. This makes it essential that students ask critical questions as to what is happening and why.
The commons system is rapidly developing. Our collective student voice must help guide the direction of this development. For the first time in five years, the student body will have the opportunity to give specific input on the future of the commons through the Student Government Association (SGA) Comprehensive Commons Review.
In the coming weeks, the SGA will be asking for your guidance on commons development. Student surveys will provide quantitative support for the already growing amount of student input the SGA is receiving. The SGA will rely on the collective voice of the student body to form policy suggestions.
It is critical that this work come from the students. And it will. Moreover, it is important that the results advocate tangible, realistic changes. And they will.
We must seize this opportunity and recognize our responsibility in shaping the future of our College.
