UPDATE: SGA passes mandatory freshmen on campus housing bill
The Student Government Association passed UB-51004 Tier One Freshmen Housing Act Wednesday with a 25-1 vote after being sent to committee on Monday. The bill will now be presented to the administration by SGA President Charles Haston.
This is the second draft of a mandatory freshmen housing proposal, which was originally presented in late August but was shut down after opposition from UH alumnus and State Senator John Whitmire. Changes include a $1,000,000 scholarship fund to be established to help subsidize the costs of on campus living and an expansion of the areas that would be exempt from living on campus, if they choose to.
