Administrative forum to focus on student issues

By Brittany Walker/reporter

A South Campus student organization has decided to take a stand next month.

The African American Student Organization will take action by attending an administrative forum at 12:30 p.m. Nov. 20 in SSTU 2105.

The organization contacted the chancellor about concerns regarding student services. In response, an open forum for administrators, faculty and students was called.

The meeting will be held so administrators and students can join and come to a consensus.

“We have our concerns, and we want to make sure they are heard,” said Lakisha Morgan, AASO president.

At the forum, students and administrators will discuss student services such as Internet connection, extended television channels and cafeteria hours.

“It [the Student Center] should cater to our needs whether it is educational or leisure,” said Kim Gooden, AASO vice president.

AASO member Larry Douglas said students need a voice.

“Students don’t have a lot of say in what goes on in facilities on campus, but we should at least with the Student Center,” he said.

Clifton Davis, South Campus director of counseling, said he understands the reactions students have to the Student Center.

“It’s the only place where the students can be free,” he said.

Concerns about SSTU game room hours as well as pros and cons of providing students with bus passes will also be discussed at the forum.

“The game room is too small for the student population,” said AASO member Latigra Harris. 

To ensure students’ voices be heard on a particular issue, AASO has scheduled a sit-in of the game room (SSTU 2106A) at 12:30 p.m. Nov. 19.

“We want to get as many people inside to prove the point of occupancy,” Morgan said. “The occupancy level does not satisfy student participation.”
