The Student Government Association discussed multiple events at their Jan. 28 meeting, but focused on Tuesday’s Community College Day.

Members of SGA and clubs, accompanied by a select group of faculty, will travel to Austin to confer with state legislators on issues facing college students today.

Thousands of students across the state will lobby for increasing financial aid to match rising tuition costs and the rising cost of textbooks.

“It is unknown what the trip will cost since the SGA does not know the amount of students attending,” SGA President Jacob Wong said.

All students are welcome to attend, but Wong said they must observe a strict dress code of “coat and tie” wear.

Buses will leave SAC at 6 a.m. and return about 5 p.m.

Students will meet at the office of student life in Room 260 of Loftin Student Center. Sack lunches will be provided.

SGA meetings are noon-1 p.m. the first three Mondays of each month in the craft room of Loftin.

For more information, call Mark Bigelow, assistant coordinator of leadership and activities, at 210-486-0125 or e-mail him at mbigelow2@alamo.edu.
