SGA greets students with hot chocolate
Members of the Marshall University Student Government Association greeted students who arrived to campus early Tuesday with a free cup of hot chocolate.
Ashley Roberts, SGA historian, proposed the idea to SGA executives and organized the handouts as a way to advertise for Wednesdays Plane Crash Ceremony, increase the SGAs visibility, do something nice for students and encourage students to go to class.
Briana Wayland, junior business marketing major, said she was influenced to get to campus early and get her share of the free hot chocolate.
I usually get out of my apartment in just enough time to get to class but I got here early because the hot chocolate was ready ad waiting, Wayland said.
Ray Harrell Jr., student body president, said the event was designed to accomplish several things, but it was mainly intended to be a nice gesture from the SGA toward the students they serve.
Elisha Hassan, senate president pro tempore, said the smallest of gestures go a long way in improving each students day.
The senate is constantly working to benefit the student body, Hassan said. Many times small things like this get pushed aside due to more pressing issues, when the small things make a large impact for the students we serve.
According to Roberts, the SGA may continue to provide free hot chocolate to students in the morning based on the number of students who took a free cup of hot chocolate on Tuesday.
