Welcome back from summer! I hope you all have had a great and relaxing past few months. If this is your first semester at USM, I want to welcome you to the University and I hope you enjoy your time here. Within the upcoming year, I have a couple of priority projects.
First off, the Brooks Student Center on the Gorham campus will be seeing renovation this fall. There were a lot of ideas put forward and the plans have been made. The new space is designed to serve more students, create an environment for student success and build community on the Gorham campus.
Next, we have some brief surveys. Though it may sound boring, this will benefit you! You will receive an email within the next couple of weeks about helping me understand what you think. I want to ask you questions about different services so I can work to make things easier and better for students. I cannot do this without you! If you participate in the surveys, you will be entered to win
some awesome prizes. Stay tuned for more information.
Finally, we have student involvement. Your experience at USM is what you make it. Take a chance and step out of your comfort zone. I challenge each of you to visit at least two student organizations this semester. Try to find something that interests you and get involved! I know that my involvement has helped me become a successful person.
Have a great year and never hesitate to share your opinion. You really can make a difference here at USM. Exercise your voice and make an impact by becoming a Student Senator. Get involved in any of the great 100 plus student organizations on campus and help reach out to our communities. Please feel free to contact me if there is anything that we can work on together.
Good luck this academic year, and go Huskies!
