In addition to having a new, and permanent, director of student life to supervise its meetings, the Student Government Association has had several new members voted into the leadership organization.

New SGA President Alex Dominguez is among some of the new leaders, but he says that he has big plans for the group, as well as the college.

“We are definitely trying to improve student participation,” Dominguez said about the direction that SGA is taking. “Things will change this year.”

Dominguez stated that the student government will not go into deficit and will be conservative in its maintenance of itself while continuing to push forward with activities.

Already this year, the SGA has completed several activities and events, such as the water rally, which garnered the attention of several elected officials as well as community leaders. Dominguez also said that he is looking to create more events with the student government, including a STEM week and possibly even the migration of a farmer’s market onto campus.

Other new members have said that they felt similarly about the events and activities that are taking place and are scheduled for the future.

“[Student government] opened my eyes to events and opportunities on the BC campus,” said incoming Parliamentarian Alex Dobrenen. Dobrenen said his position requires him to oversee the parliamentary procedure and documents that make up the SGA constitution and bylaws.

Dobrenen said that he hopes the SGA can change things for the better this semester and improve upon last year’s involvement between government and students.

Clayton Fowler, the Allied Health and Fire Technology senator, was also sworn in recently. He said he hopes to help his constituents by answering questions and resolving problems anyone might be having on campus. With an interest in both politics and firefighting, Fowler credited his attraction to such fields for leading him to apply for the position with SGA.

All of the interviewed members of the SGA said they feel positively about the changes to BC and their roles in them, whatever they may be. Dominguez emphasized this and said, “Bakersfield College is Bakersfield’s college.”
