From SGA to You – Week I

SGA Elections 2017-18 Main Banner

Last week, we announced the beginning of this year’s SGA Election Campaign and promised our readers that we would deliver special messages from our friends at SGA. We are calling these series, From SGA to You.

Before we move on to the first featured message of From SGA to You, we would like to remind you that Student Life will accept candidate applications until August 9th, and voting for will start on August 18th.

We wanted to start these special series by sharing a message from our dear friend, Prachi. Here’s what she had to deliver:

“SGA is an institution in itself. The best part of SGA that I feel is that it elects and selects the student representative based on the their potential and the passion they have for developing the student community.

SGA is an open platform and offers equal representation across campus for all students irrespective of their domestic and international status and diversity. Therefore, although being an international student I was able to stand and campaign for election. Being a student of Marketing and getting elected as Vice President of Marketing and Communications to represent the student community gave me the opportunity to learn and transpire that learning in to measurable results. Due to SGA, I was able network with Board of Alumni and be the voice of students’ and their requirements from the university alumni.

SGA developed the creative instincts in me and that lead me to design and organize creative marketing messages, campus activities, events and channelize personal communication with students to enrich their student life within the campus. Overall, SGA enabled me to work in team, develop the leadership and enhance my communication skills.”

Check back next week for the next featured message of From SGA to You!
