Texas Wesleyan’s Student Government Association voted on Thursday to fund a portion of the money needed to provide T-shirts for Midnight Madness in October.

Hosted by Student Engagement, Midnight Madness is Wesleyan’s annual event kicking off the basketball season. This year it is on Oct. 24, SGA Treasurer Lyndsey Bessinger said.

“It’s a really great way for students to get involved, hang out and kick off basketball season. This is the big rally for Wesleyan each year,” Bessinger said.

The SGA’s Buildings and Grounds Committee also:

  • Discussed smoking on campus.
    • SGA Vice President Zahraa Saheb said there should be a designated area on campus for smokers.
    • Smoking on campus is currently acceptable if a person is in a car with the windows up, she said.
    • A designated area has been discussed with Wesleyan President Fred Slabach, Saheb said.
  • Deliberated on the unlit Mall area when students and faculty are leaving the Jack and Jo Willa Morton Fitness Center at night.
    • Michael Poole, Wesleyan’s director of facilities operations, has been contacted about the lights being off when students and faculty are leaving the fitness center, Saheb said.
    • “The lamppost lights on the Mall were being turned off around 11 p.m.,” Saheb said.
    • Poole said he was unaware of the issue and is working to address it, Saheb said.

SGA President Abbey Borghee also announced an open-carry forum during free period on Nov. 3.

  • “This is a big issue and a big event that affects our student body. Please encourage everyone to attend,” Borghee said.
  • Slabach will give an address at this event, Borghee said.
