- The Eastman Students’ Association is comprised of the entire undergraduate student body.
- The Students’ Association (SA) functions as a structure in which students can make their voices heard, organize groups and activities, etc.
- SA’s primary voice is through the Students’ Association Council (SAC).
- The Council is made up of an executive committee (student body president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer), the president and SA representative from each class council (senior, junior, sophomore, freshman), and a representative from every student organization, the RA staff representative, and the Assistant Dean for Student Life.
- Meetings are Thursdays from 9:30pm to 10pm in Director’s Dining Room in Eastman Commons. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to bring ideas and concerns, although only representatives may vote.
- One of the major functions of SA is to work with the administration to address student concerns. The SA President meets with the Assistant Dean for Student Life on a weekly basis and monthly with Donna Brink Fox, Associate Dean of Academic and Student Affairs, and the Graduate Students’ Association President. SA works with other faculty, administration, and staff members depending upon the issues at hand.
- SA funds many all-student activities and provides the funding for the school’s individual student organizations. Some of SA’s past activities have included the Winter Ball, Boo Blast, Holiday Sing, Spring Fling, and the Jury Week trip to Toronto.
- SA is only as strong as those involved make it. Remember that activities and change don’t simply materialize on their own. They come about because people imagine, plan, and make them happen.
