This Year’s UMSG Accomplishments
Dining and Housing – Established the Food and Dining Affairs committee to bridge the divide between students and Sodexo leadership. 
Admin Relations – Built back a strong working relationship with the administration, placing student voices on various administrative committees and task forces to increase student involvement in decision-making.
Increased Involvement – Currently we have the greatest number of student senators in recent UMSG history. 
Student Body Connection – Implemented a weekly newsletter to ensure students are informed about what is happening with UMSG, and recently started uploading meetings to YouTube so students can better access them. 
Student Activity Fee – UMSG has distributed over $35,000 in additional funding to Student Organizations since the beginning of the semester. These funds have aided clubs in planning events, activities, and travel. Most notably, Student Activity Fee funding sent our Wrestling Club to Nationals, provided operating costs for Black Bear Beekeepers, and funded the Black Student Union (BSU) and the Caribbean and Latino Student Alliance’s (CALSA) Hair Care Fair.
