LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Take advantage of everything WKU has to offer

Cory Dodds

On behalf of the Student Government Association, I would like to welcome you to the Hill! Whether you are just beginning your journey or returning for the last time, I wish you the best this year.

Your time in college is, in addition to other things, a time of growth. The Hilltopper experience provides many opportunities for you to grow not only academically, but in other areas as well. I urge you to take advantage of the opportunities presented to you on the Hill. Reach outside your comfort zone and try something new. Since the next four years is a time for you to grow, my hope is that you achieve your full potential by taking an active part in student life.

My executive teammates and I have several goals for the SGA this year. However, my biggest hope is that you choose to get involved with student government. As an organization, SGA has the opportunity to have a substantial impact on campus policy and issues that concern our students. However, without your voice and your concerns, we are losing out on valuable opportunities.

The decisions that are made within SGA both contribute to Western Kentucky University today and help safeguard the Hilltopper experience for future students. If at any time you have an issue or concern that needs to be addressed, please feel free to email me directly at [email protected]

The best way to address student concerns, however, is to get involved and directly seek a solution yourself. We hold various elections throughout the academic year. Feel free to contact the SGA office ([email protected] or 745-4354) to learn about how you can apply for one of our many positions. I look forward to talking with you.

As always, Go Tops!
