Greetings UWGB Students, Staff and Faculty,
I would like to start this final post of the semester off by wishing you all good luck on finals and a happy holidays. Too make this short and sweet I would just like to mention that the Childcare Open forum was a great success and we will be having an assessment done by Encompass in January. If you don’t know Encompass, they are a childcare provider in Green Bay. We hope their expertise will guide us in the right direction so that we can offer childcare to all of you in the near future. Like I have said before, this is not something we want on this campus, its something that we need. Keep your eyes open for updates regarding this topic because it will be very busy next semester.
Our Student Senate recently has approved a resolution by our Environmental Affairs committee to implement a solar project in Residence Life using our sustainability fund that you students contribute to each semester. The solar panel, after an assessment, will cost roughly $20,000 and will have a 19 year payback period. We would like this to be the first step in creating a sustainable living dorm in Residence Life as well.
In the University Union, SGA will be looking to implement a composter to make use of our organic waste in all aspects of the University. Rick Warpinski will be looking at composters in the next week with students in Milwaukee to get an estimate on cost and implementation period.
SGA is currently working on creating an ice rink this winter break to be useful next semester by all UWGB members. This is of course weather permitting and will be located near the University Union and KPH. This will be a fun recreational activity offered along with many more this incoming semester by your UWGB Student orgs and awesome staff .
Students, you are kindly reminded that if you do smoke, please be sure to be 30 feet from the building entrance. This is not only the law, but an act of respect towardspeople nearby. Public safety will be enforcing this statute along with cracking down on cigarette liter. We have this beautiful campus, lets keep it that way!
We will continue our support for the CP Center of Green Bay and will be setting up in the Union next semester to collect support! More information can be found on the SGA Website at www.uwgb.edu/studgov or http://www.cp-center.org/
I hope everybody has a great break, I will be releasing more information over break and throughout this next semester.
Thanks for the ongoing support!
