A Message from Student Government | September Update

As students finish their first full month of school, student government has updates on recent projects that have been implemented.

North Dakota State University students are able to utilize the discount card offered by student government. This card offers 18 student discounts at various businesses in the Fargo-Moorhead area.

If anyone is interested in the discount card, they are available for pick up in the student government office located in the Memorial Union.

The Bike Share program reached a couple milestones this past month.

First, the program has offered over 100,000 rides since its establishment, which equals out to about 1,000 rides per bike.

Also it had been noticed that, with such high usage, students were having a hard time finding a station to dock their bike.

The student senate passed a bill to expand the Memorial Union and high rise docking stations to help with this dilemma.

Student government never anticipated such a positive response from the community, and we look forward to watching the program grow even more.

If you have any ideas or concerns on how to improve the program, feel free to let student government know.

There is now a new option for student organizations to advertise their meetings and events.

New digital signage was put in place this past month to offer an easier way for students to find out what student organizations are doing.

The signs will be updated daily for students to stay updated on events.

There are signs in Dolve Hall, the library, Minard Hall Annex and the Memorial Union.

Finally, the Involvement Expo had a new look this year. The expo was located outside with student organizations lined up on Administration Avenue on the West side of the Memorial Union.

It is estimated over 1,000 students attended the expo to get more information about the 183 organizations that attended.

Student government hosts the involvement expo every fall and spring semester.

It is a great opportunity to promote your organization or learn about other student organizations you would like to become involved with.

Future fall involvement expos will look to improve the experience of students and organizations, but overall it was a successful way for student organizations to promote their student organization.

Informing students and faculty of the developments regarding campus and student life is critical to create transparency between campus and student government.

Student government relies on the feedback and ideas from students to shape its projects into a campus we all want.

Everyone is welcome to stop by the student government office for more information on any projects.
