Student Government Association’s Secretary Federico Gonzalez-Vidal said there was a “good outcome” with 60 students at Pizza with the President Feb. 3.

Gonzalez-Vidal stood outside of the event space to have students sign in and to hopefully motivate passersby to attend.

Sophomore and Student Government Association Parliamentarian David Puente said, “If you have an issue, if you have a question, if you want to put your 2 cents about something, it’s the time to go do it.”

He joked about how students questioned the pizza selection for the event. “Is that all you got?”

Despite accommodating students looking for low-calorie options with veggie pizza and diet sodas, much was left over after the event.

“There was so much sausage, it wasn’t even funny,” Puente said.

SGA provided the pizza and refreshments through allocated funds for SGA.

Despite the turnout of more than 60 students, Gonzalez-Vidal said he wished there were more questions asked.

Puente said an open forum through means of social media or anonymous write-in questions should be incorporated next time to increase interaction between President Robert Vela and the students.

Gonzalez-Vidal reported on the Charity Ball and how Asian pop Society (A-POP) performed at the event.

Asian Pop Society is a dance group that performs Asian pop dances. The group meets 2-5 p.m. Friday in the craft room of Loftin Student Center.

Gonzalez-Vidal serves as president of A-POP.

The Charity Ball, hosted by SGA in the Koehler Cultural Center, had an attendance of 132 that brought 559 donations plus $30 from VIP packages.

Among the 559 donations, there were 103 toys, 283 food items, 163 clothing items, and 10 toiletries.

The proceeds were donated to St. PJ’s Children’s Home, a social service agency operating under the Archdiocese of San Antonio as an independent 501c3 non-profit.

The SGA will attend the Interclub Council at 2 p.m. Feb. 25 in the craft room of Loftin Student Center.

Interclub Council is a meeting for registered student organizations to receive information pertaining to requirements and other details from the office of student life.

SGA meets at noon on the first three Mondays of the month in the craft room of Loftin Student Center.

Meetings are open to all students.
