The Student Government Association hosted its 6th town hall on Thursday, which allowed students to openly discuss the issue of gender and sexual-based violence on campus. The event, moderated by Elon News Network Executive Director Jackie Pascale, was meant to facilitate a discussion about what were issues surrounding the topic of sexual harassment, specifically on Elon's campus, and what the role of students is in solving those issues. The town hall was the first event hosted by the incoming student body administration, which was sworn in just a few days after spring break. Student Body President Morgan Bodenarain said that although there is already a conversation about gender and sexual-based violence on campus, the climate surrounding it is a conversation that the organization wanted to have. "I think a lot of time we talk about how the administration is responding to these kinds of things, but never how the student body is responding to it," said Bodenarain.
