History

Over the years, various Student Government administrations have created impactful programs, services and policies to support the student body. Here are some of the most significant initiatives:

32nd Term

The tradition of Movies on the Lawn (MOTL) began in Fall 1991 when a student named Stacy Bruels suggested that the back wall of the Special Events Center be used to screen newly released films. Until 2009, a movie was shown every Wednesday at 9pm with popcorn, cotton candy, snow cones, nachos, a variety of candy and other treats given out to students. MOTL continues today and is supported by the Center for Student Involvement.
