The Student Government Association voted to allocate $30,000 in a mini-grant to Nighthawks Entertainment at the organization’s meeting on Oct. 9. This mini-grant is to help fund the spring concert for a bigger act that will be held in the Dahlonega campus’ Convocation Center.
SGA voted to recognize All-Sk8 Club as a student life organization on the Dahlonega campus. All-Sk8’s goal is to unite people by getting them immersed in skate culture. The organization’s members believe skating is a unique activity that could easily bring together a diverse group of people united by the hobby they love. It has around 10 members but hopes to grow as members start planning for set meeting places and times.
