2011-12 SGA team prepares for back-to-school

This weekend, August 12-13, members of The University of Memphis's Student Government Association's senate and executive board will partake in the organization's annual retreat at For the Kingdom Camp in Raleigh, Tenn.

The camp, located at 4100 Raleigh-Millington Road, is roughly 25 minutes from The University of Memphis's main campus.

Attendees will spend the two days brainstorming ideas, revising bylaws, training and having their first senate meeting. U of M basketball coach Josh Pastner and other University administrators will be involved in a guest panel Saturday.
