Letter from the SGA President

Student Government Association

President’s Message

During my freshman year I never would have imagined running for SGA president, but I feel so honored to have made it this far.

Sweet Briar College is not just a private women’s college, but a place full of wonder; a place that you can call home. A place where the administrative staff become your favorite teachers, your teachers are your friends, and your friends are your family. Where safety is never an issue and everyone is welcome to be their own unique person. Sweet Briar is a place where we are constantly challenged to create our own opportunities, to think outside of the box, and to take chances.

I like to tell people that I chose Sweet Briar when applying for college my senior year of high school, but I never really had a choice. Sweet Briar College was the only place that I could call home, and now I am honored with the chance to represent my favorite place in the world as SGA President.

My goals are many for this upcoming year, but my biggest goal for 2013-2014 is to assure my fellow students that the Student Government Association is here to serve you and all of your needs as an active and thriving community. We want to provide you with the resources you need to pursue your goals on and off campus, and lend a helping hand to our students whenever possible.

As your student body president, I hope you will put your complete trust in the SGA. We have been chosen to represent you as the eyes and ears of the students and I truly believe that we will function best if driven by a highly involved and vocal student body. Strong leadership is exceptionally important in a place as diverse as Sweet Briar and the SGA aims to actively address the wants and needs of our fellow students. We urge you to come to a meeting, voice your opinions and ideas, and see what we are about!

Whether you are just beginning your journey with us, or returning for the last time, I hope you find what you are looking for here at Sweet Briar and that if there is any way for SGA to help you do so, you will come to us.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please email me at griffith14@sbc.edu or sga@sbc.edu.
