The purpose of the Student Government Association (SGA) is to advocate on behalf of students at UAH. But what does that really mean? "I think a good way to explain what the SGA does is to follow an idea from conception to execution," says Nandish Dayal, SGA president and senior nursing major. "So take, for example, a recent resolution we just passed on improving lighting around campus." The impetus for this initiative came in response to a man-on-the-street survey carried out by an SGA senator. "We do these surveys periodically to start a dialogue with the students," says Dayal, "and one of them told us that some of the parking lots aren't brightly lit at night and that she doesn't feel safe."
