Welcome back to another exciting Student Government Monthly! We hope everyone had a safe and fun spring break. It’s that time of year again. SG will host its fourth annual Academic Advising Expo from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday in Dewberry Hall, located on the bottom floor of the Johnson Center. Faculty and staff from more than 20 departments and offices on campus will be at the event to answer students’ questions.

This event is one way the administration supports the student body with respect to vital aspects of the college experience such as academic advising. Students are encouraged to attend the AAE where they can ask questions, find out who their advisor is and receive on-the-spot advice about their academic plans.

But wait, there’s more! Free food will be provided along with a chance to win a free general lot parking pass. All who attend and are advised will be entered in a raffle for the parking pass, which is valid for one semester. Raffle winners who have already purchased their passes for the fall 2012 semester may redeem the prize for cash back or an upgrade. Students can also purchase $1 tickets for a raffle to win a fast pass, which will allow the winner to skip the lines at Mason Day, which will be April 27. Proceeds from the raffle will go to the March of Dimes, which is a charity that raises money to prevent birth defects and premature births.

The AAE also plays a part in Greek Week, which is taking place this week. If you belong to a Greek organization, don’t forget to stop by the AAE to earn points for your team.

SG would like to thank the AAE sponsors, which include Coca-Cola, Apple, Parking Services, Dining Services and the Academic Advising & Transfer Center. We hope to see everyone there. It will be a blast with something exciting and new for everyone. For more information, follow us on Twitter, “like” our Facebook page or visit our website at sg.gmu.edu.
