The UNT Student Government Association met with Warren Burggren, UNT provost and vice president for academic affairs, and appointed one senator during its meeting Wednesday night.

President V. Lane Rawlins was originally scheduled to speak to the SGA but was unable to attend. Burggren spoke instead and discussed the future of UNT.

“We are in the middle of taking off,” Burggren said. “In 2020, I bet this will be a fundamentally better university, and you will have had something to do with it.”

Burggren assured the SGA that the tuition students pay is well worth the money, and UNT plans to improve its programs.

“I can promise you we are plowing this [funds from tuition] directly into the endeavor to benefit students,” Burggren said.

Tier One status and greater representation for UNT were other topics Burggren addressed. “We have not made the entire community proud that UNT is here,” Burggren said.

After Burggren spoke, the SGA appointed fashion design junior Ava Sharbaf to represent the College of Visual Arts and Design.

Sharbaf gained interest in joining the SGA after attending meetings.

“I really enjoyed how informative they were about things on campus,” Sharbaf said. “I thought why not come all the time, hear what’s going on, know what’s going on and represent.”
