The new President of the Student Government Association (SGA), Chigbogu Ekemezie, and Vice President, Harriet Amofah, sent out an email introducing themselves to the student body for the first time.
“Grizzlies, SGA is here to advocate for your needs as well as support each student with their academic pursuits. As representatives of the student body, we act as a direct liaison between the college and its students,” SGA President Ekemezie wrote.
Plans for the Semester
“This year, SGA aims to engage in more intentional conversations with campus stakeholders to express student voices and concerns,” Ekemezie wrote.
Some needs they plan to address include a food pantry, free hygiene products in all of the female bathrooms, and reducing printing prices.
Meanwhile, Vice President Amofah spoke on the administrative side.
“This year, our administration looks forward to accomplishing many initiatives, including enhancing awareness of SGA and other RSO’s.”
SGA president Ekemezie encouraged students to join the organization if they are interested in developing their leadership skills.
“We have your back and we cannot wait to have you assist with our contributions to all areas of campus,” Ekemezie wrote. The SGA office is located on the Student Center (3rd floor E-3104).
The organization holds a Senate meeting every Thursday at 2 p.m. that is open to the student body. Students can voice their concerns and chat with SGA members. Students can also raise concerns at the semesterly town halls.
