The Student Government Association announced its finalists for the Spring Fling concert during its first student body meeting of the semester Tuesday.
SGA announced that it had selected Fabolous, El Varner, Melanie Fiona, ASAP Rocky, Juicy J and Wale as potential acts for the event, which will be held in April.
Students were later sent a link via email to vote for who they would like to see perform at Lincoln.
The meeting drew a large crowd as a result of the pending announcement. However, other issues were discussed during the meeting, which was held in the Student Union Building multipurpose rom.
The meeting opened up with the current SGA President DeWayne Walker giving a recap of last semester’s events and the success the board had achieved by working closely with the administration and student body.
However, when the floor was open to questions, senior Marion Simmons voiced several concerns that she had with the board.
“Why are we having protests about cups but not protesting budget cuts for departments?” Simmons asked the board.
The board responded by noting that it took a 17% budget cut.
Sophomore Winnie-Mae Washington stood and made a point on behalf of the SGA board.
“A lot of these questions and concerns would be answered if students to the responsibility to go to events like Board of Trustee’s Meetings and Faculty meetings,” said Washington.
