The Student Government Association unanimously approved Bill 49-16 “Allocation of Funds – New Microwaves” at its Feb. 23 meeting, which sets aside $500 to purchase three new microwaves for the Commons. Jennifer Reichert, international studies and business sophomore, SGA senator and the bill’s co-sponsor, said she believed the approval of the bill would improve the wait-time for microwaves and shows the student body the SGA takes students’ concerns seriously. Josh Kornberg, communications senior and SGA president, reported that the Physical Plant should be installing new outlets for the microwaves within the next two weeks.
