The Student Government Association, in conjunction with the Athletics Department, is giving students the opportunity to name and theme the Student Section in JQH Arena in order to enhance the athletic experience for students.
Students have the opportunity to submit their JQH Student Section name suggestions in this week’s Athletics Poll being conducted as part of SGA’s new Weekly Public Opinion Poll found at http://sga.missouristate.edu/poll/. The Top 5 Name Suggestions will then be voted on by the student body during the 2009 Homecoming Elections later this month. Missouri State University Athletic Director, Kyle Moats, and the Assistant Director of Corporate Relations and Athletics Development, Stewart Davis, have been aggressively seeking student input this year, and approached SGA with the opportunity for students.
“This is a unique opportunity for students to make a permanent mark here at Missouri State University through their input and creativity. This will be a lasting name that will help create and shape enthusiasm, unity, promotion, themeing, branding, and sponsorship opportunities for students and their section in JQH,” said SGA Director of University and Civic Advancement, Andrew Garton. Garton does note that students should stay away from names focused too heavily on any specific student organization or current faculty or staff members at Missouri State. “The best name will be one that focuses on all of the characteristics that make it great to be a fan of Missouri State athletics. The name should really define the space, define student fans at Missouri State, and make opponents dread having to play at MSU in the Q.”
Be sure to submit your suggestions today at http://sga.missouristate.edu/poll/ and make sure your voice is heard.
