What kind of changes would you like to see made next year? Next year I would like to see SGA open up to the entire campus, in a way that senators and more of the student body can see the value in attending senate. Right now there is a lack of connection between what happens with SGA in senate and the results on campus. If we can bridge that gap so that those involved see the value in their work and those not yet involved see the value in participating, we will be a stronger organization and as a result a stronger university.
Additional comments: With so many candidates running for vice president, every vote really does count, though it may not seem like it. I hope that even if students do not vote for me, they will at least log in on April 8 or stop by the Student Recreation Center on April 9 to vote for the candidate they think will make a difference.
