War Eagle and welcome back! Whether you have been traveling to Los Angeles, Calif., the Hamptons in N.Y. or anywhere else in the world, we are glad to have you back on the Plains! I hope that all of you have been able to kick back and really enjoy this summer, and that you are excited to return.
Summer in Auburn has been a great one, and SGA has been hard at work to make our university an even better place for students.
To outline some of our progress very briefly, we have worked with the Provost’s office to create Tiger Adviser, a mini advising location in the library to answer your questions.
We have worked to continue to improve dining options and value, getting you more bang for your buck each time you buy on campus.
We have also made progress toward a fall break and improved student life through the addition of various facilities improvements like bike racks, benches at transit stops and Weagle Water hydration stations throughout campus.
Additionally, the Student Recreation and Wellness Center, an SGA initiative, is fully under construction.
The walls and rooftop are quickly coming together, and we are very excited to see this open in the spring as a service for students. SGA members have also been working hard to conduct blood drives, prepare for traditions like Hey Day and bring in another national championship for our favorite big cat, Aubie.
This upcoming year will be packed with exciting opportunities, and I encourage each of you to capitalize on the chances that you receive. I urge you to learn inside and outside of the classroom, sacrifice your time to make Auburn a better place and invest in your friends and classmates.
Auburn has so much to offer for each of us that we have no alibi for idleness; make the most of your Auburn experience!
Please do not ever hesitate to contact me if I can help in any way. My email address is email@example.com and the SGA office is on the third floor of the student center.
I always welcome any questions, concerns or ideas. Also, look for SGA on Facebook, Twitter and on our website for up-to-date news and information. Our new feedback system (auburn. edu/heAUrdthat) is up and running and we look forward to hearing your opinions on key campus issues.
I hope that all of you are able to avoid the Auburn heat as much as possible in these next few weeks and I wish you all the very best of luck in the upcoming year!
God Bless and War Eagle,
SGA President, ’12-13
