Donuts With Dallas and Richardson Town Halls

Working with Comets for Better Transit, the Legislative Affairs Committee of SG will be hosting two town hall meetings where students can speak with government officials and candidates from the Dallas and Richardson areas. Attendees include Mayor Eric Johnson and various council members from both cities. Additionally, volunteer deputy registrars (VDRs) will be present to help students get registered for approaching elections. Students can enjoy coffee and donuts while interacting with representatives and asking them questions. The event will be held on March 23 at 5:30 p.m. in the Davidson Management Auditorium located in JSOM.

Comet Watch Party

SG, in collaboration with the Astronomy department, is hosting an event for students to gather and view Comet C/2022 E3 (ZTF) in honor of UTD’s mascot. First discovered in March 2022, the comet stands out because of its vibrant green tail that can be seen as it makes its way across the sky. The viewing party will be held in the early morning of Feb. 2, the date of the comet’s closest passage to Earth. Students will be able to enjoy snacks, skywatch and learn about the rare occurrence in a picnic style gathering.
