Why I Decided to Join SGA

Posted on 12/1/2018 12:01:47 AM by Julia Smith

Cabrini's campus is filled with a vibrant mix of clubs, events, and extracurricular activities. My first semester here at the University, I knew I wanted to get involved in the Cabrini community and make a difference. The Student Government Association, or SGA, was the perfect place for me to do that. I have been senate member on SGA for two years now and I have gained a multitude of experiences, skills, and opportunities. Not only do I get to engage with my fellow Cabrini students, but I also get to make changes on our campus that others may be unable to do. This is done by listening to the student body's complaints, concerns, and opinions, and bringing them to the SGA meetings for deliberation. 

Being a part of SGA has also enhanced my leadership and professional skills, through a variety of activities. As a senate member, I am required to join at least one academic committee, as well as two campus-based committees. Academic committees consist of faculty and tend to discuss topics that surround academic honesty, majors, and the core curriculum. By being a part of these committees, I am able to express my concerns, as a student, to those who are in higher leadership positions on campus. These opportunities have allowed me to gain better communication skills and remain included in the topics that affect students the most. 

SGA has been a great asset to my Cabrini experience. Through this club, I have met a great group of individuals who all share a common interest in making our campus a better and more welcoming space. I encourage all students to run for student government, or at least attend the senate meetings as guests, to join in the conversation of advocation and service, and be a voice for those who may not be able to do so, or effectively do so.
