MOON TOWNSHIP – The Student Government Association (SGA) held their first meeting of the spring semester.

SGA discussed Alternative Spring Break with Micah Thompson, the Engaged Learning and Community Involvement advisor.

Alternative Spring Break allows students to help out the Pittsburgh community over break. This year, it focuses on rehabilitation for a low-income home in Pittsburgh. This will count as 24 hours of service towards SET.

The program is free and lunch and dinner will be provided. Applications are due on Friday, Jan. 31.

The Shark Tank event will be held on Feb. 18 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Organizations can compete for more funding by pitching their ideas. $7000 is available to give out. The deadline to apply is Feb. 12.

The Spikeball Club is a new club sport that will start this semester as well.

SGA officers also reminded students about Article X, which states that club representatives should attend 60 percent of meetings, or funding will be in jeopardy.
