On Nov. 4, SGA will be having a Night Walk after the SGA meeting.

The Night Walk is meant to help find safety issues like the sufficiency of lamps around campus and ease of walking around at night. The SGA uses this information for better safety for students.

The Student Government Association announced the start of the “Backpack for Kids” program.

Freshman Forum director Olivia Melton, sophomore and mathematics and economics major from Gulf Shores said, “It is a program that provides food for sixty underprivileged kids over the weekend at a local Head Start, which has needy children around 3 to 5 years old.”

On Nov. 6, there will be a senior bonfire/bonfire pep rally at Sorority Hill at 6:30 p.m. On Nov. 8, the Troy Trojans will play against Georgia State at 2 p.m. The Trojan Walk will start at 11:45 a.m.

The SGA placed the SPARKLE Mentoring Club’s constitution on docket. The purpose of this organization is to “develop sister-like bonds with teenage girls in grades 6-12, assist with exploring careers, setting goals, developing contacts and identifying resources. They also must attend monthly meetings and take on roles and responsibilities that may change as the mentor relationship develops over time and as the needs and goals of the men-tee shifts in specifics contexts and situations that require different strategies.”
