Basketball season is over. What can you do for the
rest of the semester? UK’s Student Government
Association has an idea.

SGA is sponsoring a program it hopes will help
students become more active in local and national

“We try to get students out to meet their repre-
senting officials,” said Melanie Cruz, associate direc-
tor of SGA. “We want them to go out and vote and
get involved, whether they like the candidate or not.”

The Political Action-Reaction Project is designed
to get local and federal officials to come to campus
and talk about their accomplishments.

“We want to have the senators discuss what they
have done,” Cruz said, “rather than politicking
toward their campaign.”

The first politician in this series is US. Sen. Mitch
McConnell (R-Kentucky), who will be on campus
from 1:30 p.m.—2:30 p.m. in 228 Student Center.
