To those returning, welcome back! And to all new students, I hope you all had a memorable NSO experience. As someone who spent most of their summer on campus, I could not be more thrilled to have all 2,000 of you here. The hill is alive again with more energy than ever.
This is a year of new beginnings, not just for the first-years, but for everyone. Over the summer, I witnessed the building of a new Career Center, I met new Administrators and Directors, and I spoke to 700 new students. Despite a changing environment, the passion of this community continues and I am honored to work with all of you this coming year.
Last year our accomplishments included:
Raising over $15,000 for our Pioneers for Pioneers Fund,
Changing OLCC Policy,
Bringing Arabic Courses to our Curriculum,
And countless more,
We have plans for a big year and hope that you all can be a part of them.
With that said, let us work together as one student body. This year we plan on connecting with other schools, improving student voice in curriculum decisions, furthering dialogue between students and administrators, and more. Yet, these initiatives can only progress with the drive and ambition of us all. We encourage you to run for Senate, join a committee, come to a Senate meeting, or just come by our office and chat. Our door (Templeton 238) is always open and everyone is welcome.
Whatever your concern, hope, vision, plan, or idea is, we are here to work with you. And…
We are ASLC
Whether it be your first or last year here at L&C, welcome home and I wish you the best of luck.
Your friend on the hill,
