SGA discusses Rave Guardian app, health clinic idea
The Student Government Association began its first meeting of the semester on Sept. 21 by discussing the Rave Guardian app and concerns that students largely aren’t aware of the resource.
The app has many features to protect students such as anonymous tipping and setting geofence alarms that will alert authorities if a student fails to reach their designated location. The app is available on Apple and Android devices. In other safety business, the group also talked of having an on-campus police department in response to the concealed carry law on campus set to take effect next fall.
They also updated the students on the progress on the Del Mar Health Clinic. The SGA called on the students to take surveys on the clinic and tell the college what they want to see from the facility. However, the addition of a health clinic would increase student fees.
The SGA urged students to take a look at the SGA newsletter. It offers information that students may not otherwise be aware of, including links to important support services, including financial aid help.
The meeting closed with multiple calls for volunteers from different groups. The club Precision Metal from West Campus is holding a fundraiser to give away bikes. Anyone interested in helping should email trigorogelio@ gmail.com. The TABPHE is also in need of volunteers for the younger students involved in the program; students should go to the Student Life and Leadership Office in the Harvin Center if they are interested. The YWCA Glo n Go Fun Run is being held at Cole Park on Oct. 8. Students wishing to register should visit their website at www. ywcacc.org.
The next SGA meeting is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. Oct. 19 on Del Mar College’s West Campus.
