The Student Government Association is bringing more events and activities to Amarillo College this semester.
“I’m really hoping the students enjoy the events we have going on as much as we did planning them,” Cecilia Almanza, the SGA president, said. “This is all for them and I hope they enjoy them.”
Events include Lessons and Laughs at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 5 in the Burrow, a taco fundraiser Thursday, Feb. 14 and Lessons and Laughs Tuesday, Feb. 19 in the Burrow.
Amber Hamilton, the director of student life, said these events are always casual and fun, and it’s a great way for students to get involved and make new friends. “Open up your eyes and experience,” Hamilton said.
Hamilton said it’s all up to the students and their choice to attend and make new connections, the same way she did years ago when she was an AC student.
“I think the events sound really cool,” Nicole Sengsouriya, a biology major, said. Despite her enthusiasm, Sengsouriya has not attended any of the SGA-sponsored activities.
“It’s something I’ve always wanted to do. I see posters and hear about it, but I’ve never been able to make the events,” Sengsouriya said.
The SGA meets every Wednesday at noon in the second floor of the College Union Building to discuss and plan events. “I really want them to continue making changes that the students want to see,” Jenna Welch, student life specialist, said.
Almanza said all students are welcome and to bring a friend to the meetings and events. “I’m excited about meeting new people and telling them about SGA and student life and how important it is to get involved,” Almanza said.
