SGA sponsors banquet
October 24, 2017
The Student Government Association passed motions to sponsor tickets for the College of Business
Administration’s annual Etiquette Dinner and to fund the 10th Annual International Student Banquet at
its meeting yesterday.
The Etiquette Dinner motion will allow for SGA to purchase 20 tickets at $25 each for students who
would not otherwise be able to purchase tickets to be able to attend the event, while the International
Banquet motion allows for the organization to allocate $950 to the international community to fund the
Vice president Austin Wendt said that, as someone who has benefitted from the dinner himself, he
believes it is beneficial to all students.
“There’s going to be some times where you’re going to be having a professional dinner with someone
that maybe is looking to hire you for a high-end job in a company,” said Wendt, “and sometimes they’ll
take you out to dinner and they like to see how you act at a social occasion.”
Wendt said that the International Banquet is “one of the most fun banquets” at Nicholls and that it
showcases the university’s international students.
“It just shows the diversity we have here, and you learn so much about the different cultures we have
here and you get a greater appreciation for those international students on campus,” said Wendt.
The Etiquette Dinner and International Banquet will take place on Nov. 9 and Nov. 12, respectively.
Additionally, Peyton Chiasson, director of student rights and grievances, said that he is going to begin
writing a proposal for the tech fee to improve Peltier Hall’s Wi-Fi access points.
SGA is also looking to reformat the Nicholls iPhone app in order to make it more user-friendly.
The organization tabled two motions to sponsor a toy drive for the emergency room at Thibodaux
Regional Medical Center and to purchase three new picnic tables for the quad.
