The State of the SGA Address Fall 2006

Posted by iusbvision on October 25, 2006

The state of our government is promising, and I am excited for our future.  I felt the need to restate why we are here and what we mean to accomplish. We pledged to serve the student body, so let us focus on this goal.  Always keep in mind that our actions have a lasting affect on the student body.  That said; let us replace the animosity in our government with respect for one another and a common goal. Let us all leave our personal agendas at the door; there is no place for that in the Student Government. Let us now move forward as one.

There are many issues that greatly affect our student body that we can address such as:

  • Student housing
  • Preparing for “get on the bus”
  • Helping to find a student trustee candidates from our campus
  • Addressing the failed search of the Director of Health and Wellness
  • Working on the future of Athletics
  • Helping to build a stronger IU South Bend / Notre Dame relationship
  • Assisting with student events, like the GULU walk
  • Student issues and concerns 

I challenge every senator of this government to come back here in two weeks, bringing with you one student issue/idea that you would like to work on, and how you would start to address it.  We will then look at all of those issues and ideas, and decide as a whole what our priorities are. We will set our top goals as an organization together.  Again, it’s time that we concentrate on issues that most affect our student body.  Let’s make a lasting legacy for IU South Bend Student Government. We want the students, faculty, administration, and community to know that we are capable of making positive changes. This SGA has great potential, so let’s keep it real for the students.

Marcus Vigil
Student Government President
