SGA’s Facilities Council strives to serve as the liaison between Auburn University’s Facilities Management Division and the student body. SGA’s Facilities Council works with a broad variety of initiatives anywhere from light posts to the new Campus Master Plan. Working closely with SGA’s Student Affairs and Auxiliary Services Councils, we hope to make the grounds and walls some call “campus” a place we call “home”.
Projects, Goals and Initiatives
This year the Facilities Council is working on a number of initiatives, some large and some small.
- On the large scale, we are working to give student input on the design and eventual construction of the new Central Classroom Facility and the Student Memorial Project. Both of these projects are still in the design phase, but we hope to see them come to fruition in the near future.
- Weagle Water is an SGA initiative that began only a few years ago where water fountains on campus are also being equipped with a filtered water bottle filling station for reusable water bottles. Each filling station has a “water bottles saved” count that displays the number of disposable water bottles eliminated from the use of reusable bottles.
- War Eagle Wheels is a brand new bike share program funded by the University where several university owned bikes will be “free floating” on campus. This means that any student at any time can ride one of these bikes across campus. The bikes would rotate person to person and building to building as needed. Another goal for this year’s council is to extend the hours of access to on campus buildings to offer students an alternate study location.
If you have any input or ideas pertaining to Facilities that you would like to be heard, please contact the AVP of Facilities or one of the Directors of Facilities listed on this page and we would love to hear from you. SGA is only effective if we have the opinion of students!
