From the President's Desk


On behalf of the Student Government Association and the Student Body of Georgia Southwestern State University, welcome to GSW, the home of the Hurricanes! If you are interested in Student Government, we meet every Thursday at 5:00 PM in the Student Success Center.

The GSW community might be small in numbers, but we are big on campus unity, excellence and opportunity. We look forward to the diverse interest. goals and skills students bring to our campus. With a wide range of student organizations, each of you should be able to find your place in our community. The close relationship between students and faculty at Southwestern allow you unparalleled access to the tools needed to succeed academically. You are always welcome to come visit and see for yourself what the Southwestern campus is all about.

For members of our campus community, I challenge you to become Servant Leaders. SGA is based upon the ideals of servant leadership. We do not ask "how can someone serve me today?" Instead, we ask "how can I serve someone today?" Opportunities for service abound on our campus, and they are only limited by your desire to serve others. Ultimately, your college experience is determined by you. Take ownership of your academics and campus involvement. This is your life. Leave a Legacy. You will determine what you leave behind. I encourage each of you to join student organizations, attend athletic events, and work hard and diligently in the classroom. Together, we will all embody the Spirit of Southwestern!
