The Student Government Association voted Tuesday to rename Banks Street to Honors Avenue.
The vote was unanimous although it was stated that the City of Jonesboro might change “avenue” to what fits the criteria, such as road, street, etc. However, the word ‘Honors’ would remain in the title. Banks Street is located between the Honors housing and the new sorority houses.
The senate appointed a freshman to fill a graduate student seat.
No graduate students were present at the meeting who wanted to fill the graduate student seat, so the position was open to any ASU student.
Fallon Mauldin, a freshman engineering major of Little Rock, was sworn into the graduate senate seat.
“I am very excited to be a part of SGA,” Mauldin said. “I really want to be of help to the university.”
Austin Copenhaver, SGA vice president, reminded everyone that SGA applications are now available.
“They are due March 1,” Copenhaver said. “So if you’d like to be a senator next year, or the president or vice president, I advise you to do so as soon as you can.”
Petrus informed the senate about career week.
“The career center has been putting on several seminars about resumes, interviews and dress code,” he said. “Be sure to take advantage of that. We have a new director of the career center and he’s doing a fantastic job, so be sure to go during your spare time.”
