Message From President

Emily Ashley

Hello,

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the University of North Carolina at Pembroke (UNCP). I am elated that you have chosen our campus to further your education and to create memories that will last for a lifetime.

As President of the Student Government Association (SGA) and a fellow student, I would like to share with you a few very important items as you prepare to begin your 2014-2015 academic year as a Brave.

Whether you are an incoming student or a returning student, I encourage you to take the initiative to become involved. Your student involvement is key to succeeding here at UNCP. Identify what you are passionate about, seek out opportunities, and work towards achieving your goals.

If you do not know your passion we have over 90+ student organizations from intramural sports to Greek life. We also have an office dedicated to helping you find opportunities to participate in community service programs. Being involved on campus does not only help to build lasting relationships with fellow students but it also help you grow as an individual. I was once told that, mistakes are going happen; problems are going to arise, but just as problems occur and mistakes are made, solutions are found. You can and you will overcome any hurdle that comes your way because you are BRAVER than you think.

The Student Government Association is an organization established to represent the voice of the students. We are here to assist the student body in discovering themselves and recognizing their true potential as they take on the journey of becoming an eminent leader in their community. We have many goals for the upcoming year, but our biggest goal for 2014-2015 is to listen to the needs of the students here at UNCP. You will see our fellow SGA senators all around campus so if you have any questions or concerns in regards to anything on campus, please do not hesitate to ask. SGA meets every Wednesday during the academic year and our office is located on the second floor of the University Center Annex. We hope that you will visit us and get involved, you will create the college experience you hope to have.

So again I would like to welcome you to our UNCP family.  And remember, your experience here at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke is what you make it.

Make it memorable.

Best regards,

Biruk Kassaw
SGA President
