Let Your Voice Be Heard
USGA Needs Your Help!
USGA is meant to be the voice of the students! We've taken your feedback and turned it into action. Here are some ways you can help us making your ideas happen:
Proposed Room Reservation Fee
This information was drawn from a drafted proposal written by members of Loyola's aministration and has not yet been approved or finalized.
- Addition of a fee for changing the "standard default setup" of a space
- Possible cancellation fee
If you would like to use certain rooms on campus and you require a different arrangement in the space, you will be charged a setup fee to change the room from the standard default setup. There is no charge if you use the room as is.
A penalty fee may be charged to student groups or university departments if Campus Reservations is not notified of the cancellation. Failure to periodically respond to reminder will result in cancellation of the reservation.
What you can do:
To voice your concerns, email Tim McGuriman, Associate VP for Business Services at firstname.lastname@example.org, CC Julia Poirier at email@example.com, telling them how you feel.
Proposed Changes to RSO Promotional Opportunities and Restrictions
Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) exist at Loyola University of Chicago because they enhance the community and allow students to engage themselves and others in their passions. While the University works hard to maintain its facilities, RSOs are being inhibited from publically promoting their events due to restrictions, such as strict policies and limited availability in terms of space.
At Loyola University Chicago, events are not only created to educate one another on important topics or engage one another in one’s mission, but to facilitate friendship and community between students. Yet, there is no purpose for putting in all the hard work for an event unless people attend- a result directly influenced by an organization's ability to promote themselves and their events.
This issue could be improved by exploring new ways for RSOs to promote activities, including flat screens, additional bulletin boards, and adequate advertising space and venues in the new union.
