The Student Government Association opened its weekly meeting Wednesday night with a hot chocolate bar provided by Terri Benton, associate director of Dining and Racer Hospitality services.

Hanging of the Green will be 5 to 8 p.m. on Dec. 8 on the second floor of the Curris Center. There will be games, food and prizes.

Freshman senator Nathan McNichols said there was an 8 percent rise in freshman failing transitions classes for this semester.

Josh Jacobs, the president’s chief of staff, said the President’s Commission on Student Retention is looking at the course value of transitions classes.

“The purpose of the course is to find things that will help you succeed like obtaining their MAP report and knowing their schedule,” Jacobs said. “We are looking at whether transitions are adding value or just another hurdle for students.”

The meeting closed with voting on which SGA member wore the tackiest Christmas sweater.
