As the year comes to a close, the Undergraduate Student Government Association threw a dodge ball tournament to unify both House and Senate representatives on March 29 at 2 p.m. in the Beckerman Recreation Center.

Sean McFadden, USGA Senior Vice President, organized the event. “It’s just a social event between the Senate and House, and just a fun thing to build a better relationship,” he said.

The Senate has twenty-five active members and the House has twenty. All the members split up into four teams of five, mixed with House and Senate, and one team was comprised of entirely executive board memebers.

Each team faced each other three times, and played best out of seven in a round robin; after, there was single elimination.

“The event was a good way for everyone to get more comfortable with each other,” said Elissa Sanci, Assistant Editor of the Charger Bulletin. “I think because of this there will be more communication within USGA.”

This dodgeball tournament was the second team-building activity sponsored by USGA, following the fall semester Summit, where students visited Orange Campus for various workshops.

“These activities are pivotal to the success of the Undergraduate Student Government Association,” said Richard Rotella, USGA President. “We are more than just senators, representatives and members of the executive board, we are students and we have to have some fun!”
