Aniket Awachat, a sophomore mechanical engineering major from India, Calvin Diaz, a biology and chemistry freshman from Bryant, and Deane Marks, a economics sophomore from DeWitt are sworn in as the new senators for their colleges.

After recently passing a resolution to create a park and study area for the Northpark Quad and HLLC population, the Student Government Association resolved to also include the Red Wolf Den area.

After meeting on Tuesday evening, senior senator Ashdon Floyd brought up the point that many students in Red Wolf Den have said they want a park and study area as well.

The areas will include an outdoor area including benches and tables that can be used for studying and conversing. It will also include barbeque grills for recreational purposes.

"I think it would be great if we had this, it's a great way for students to meet each other and hang out near their residence halls," sophomore senator Zach Brogdon said.

The resolution was then voted on and amended to include an area for Red Wolf Den.

The resolution will now be sent to vice chancellor of student affairs Rick Stripling.

SGA president Hunter Petrus also announced that there would be a coaches' panel on Monday, Feb. 13 at 6 p.m.

The coaches' panel will feature head football coach Gus Malzahn, men's basketball coach John Brady and athletics director Dean Lee pumping up the students about ASU sports.

"The first 200 students will receive a free visor when they come to Centennial Hall on Monday," Petrus said. "It's going to be a mini Order of the Pack so we want a ton of students to show up."

The SGA also swore in three new senators during their meeting.

The positions for the college of engineering, the college of business and the college of math and science were filled in.

The position for the college of nursing and health is still available.

Natalie Wilbanks, SGA vice president, announced that applications for the 2012-2013 senator positions will be available on Monday and will be due by Feb. 29.
