Northern State University Student Association Update

My fellow students,

   Though we have only had one meeting at the time I am writing this, Student Association has already undergone four major changes. At our first meeting of the semester, we had applicants for four of the six open seats available.
   Therefore, I would like to welcome senators Colin Mcalvain, Cordell Ring, Adam Schultz, and Joe Keryakos to our organization. Mcalvain will be representing the School of Business; Ring the School of Education; Schultz the College of Arts and Sciences; and Keryakos Residence Life. Should you belong to any of these schools or live in a residence hall, these four are the folks you will want to contact!
   As of right now we still have two seats available on Student Association for this semester. The seats we currently have available are for the School of Education and Graduate School. If you are a student in the listed schools and have an interest in making a difference on campus and in the lives of your fellow students, consider applying for a position!
   If you have questions about the positions and the responsibilities they entail, please email me ( or SA President Corey Klatt ( for more information about the positions. To apply, stop by one of our meetings. They are held every Tuesday night at 9pm in the Centennial Rooms of the Student Center. Applicants will be asked to introduce themselves to the Association and answer a few questions from the senators.
   As for the rest of the semester, we have an event coming up called the Presidential Promenade. This soon-to-be Northern tradition is on Friday, January 21. Additionally, club renewal forms will be going out soon, and SBAC hearings should be taking place sometime in February. Lastly, elections for next year’s Student Association will take place in March and April.
   We are here to serve you, the students, and, if we aren’t properly serving the students, then we are not doing our job. So come join us  for a meeting and don’t be afraid to give us your input. We are your voice in the world of higher education. Not only do your senators represent you in Student Association, but every senator also serves on a number of campus-wide committees that affect all areas of campus life.
   That being said, we would greatly appreciate your input at our meetings. Our meetings are open to the public. It’s your opportunity to be heard, so take advantage of it and stop by!

Go Wolves!
