The Student Government Association (SGA) at UTSA reduced the number of seats available for their leadership summit from 75 to 50. Out of the 50 seats reserved at John Newcombe Tennis Ranch, 45 students and two advisors attended, leaving three seats unfilled. The two-night conference package for 50 people was priced at $135 per person. With three seats left vacant, $405 out of the total cost went unutilized at the leadership summit. When asked if money was thrown away for three open seats, Faculty Advisor Andrew Shelnutt said, “Yes, I would agree with that.” SGA President Jack Rust declined to provide a comment on the record regarding the unfilled seats.
