At the first SGA meeting this semester, Dean Patterson gave an overview of the Alcohol Law Enforcement agency and its responsibilities, reminding students that the agency does periodic checks throughout the year to enforce laws regarding the sale and consumption of alcohol.

Executive President Darien Flowers then swore in the freshmen class SGA members, who assumed their positions last night after first-year election results were announced.

Following a brief introduction of the new members, Flowers addressed the controversy surrounding Chick-fil-a and its presence on campus, which will be discussed further at future meetings, he said.

“We’ve been approached by students with some legislation regarding this issue,” he said. “That will be on our agenda within the next several weeks.”

In other news, a committee dedicated to the allocation of the SGA scholarship will be instituted this semester, Flowers said.

Special allocations to the Model United Nations club, the International Business club and the Elon Young Republicans club were passed 37-0-0.

Senate bill 12-9.5, a proposal to establish a town-gown relations committee, was also passed 37-0-0.

“We need to really understand that we are one piece in the greater puzzle,” Flowers said. “We want to be good neighbors.”
