Students’ Association asks for input on how to spend student dollars

How to invest student dollars into the General Activity Fee (GAF) for the next four years has been the focus for Students’ Association. To help guide the conversation, SA released a general survey.

You can take the survey here.

Students could win a $750 to the SDSU Bookstore, two Summit League Basketball Tournament passes or an Apple Watch after taking the survey.

GAF is a fee every enrolled student pays to support widely-used services and programs that “enhance the student experience.” Things like the Student Union, the Wellness Center, student organizations and Athletics receive funding from GAF. Currently, GAF is $43.75 per credit hour.

The input from the survey will determine students’ priorities and give senators insight on how to invest GAF.

“That survey will be a powerful indicator of what students want and will help us make some hard decisions in the future,” GAF Strategic Plan Steering Committee Chair Sen. Nick Lorang said to Students’ Association at the Oct. 29 SA meeting.

The last day to take the survey is Nov. 9.

“Take the survey, take the survey, take the survey,” Lorang said. “… Every member that pays into the General Activity Fee is a part of this Students’ Association.”
