SGA recognizes Night of Worship and hears mini-grant request

At the organization’s meeting on Oct. 2, the Student Government Association voted to recognize Night of Worship at UNG as a student life organization on the Dahlonega campus. The Night of Worship is a Christian faith-based organization that will be holding a monthly meeting for all the religious campus organizations to get together and worship with a live band.

The organization’s goal is to create a sense of community within the different faith-based organizations. It plans to meet only once a month so it does not conflict with pre-existing scheduled meetings for the groups.

Nighthawks Entertainment requested a mini-grant of $30,000 from SGA for its annual concert scheduled for the spring semester. The organization already has a budget of $85,000 but requested the extra money because the artists it’s looking into all have projected rates of over $100,000. As this will be one of the first  events in the new Convocation Center, Nighthawks Entertainment would like to bring in someone the students will be excited for. SGA voted to take a week and talk to its constituents around campus to see what kind of show they would like to see and vote on the mini-grant next meeting.

Voting for Mr. and Miss UNG will begin next week and there will be a tailgating party before Spirit Night on Oct. 18.

Meal swipes can now be used at Java City and Einstein Bros Bagels during the day. Also, the sundae bar that has been added to the Chow Hall will be permanent.

Col. Palmer, the Commandant of Cadets on the Dahlonega campus, ended the meeting by reminding everyone to keep Las Vegas in their thoughts after the shooting in the city on Monday.
