Texas A&M University-Kingsville

Welcome from the President

Dear Javelinas,

Your Student Government Association (SGA) is proud to represent their fellow Javelinas at Texas A&M University - Kingsville (TAMUK) during the 2012-2013 school year. This year has great potential with all of the exciting changes around campus and the growth of the student body. I am very thankful and honored to represent my fellow students as student body President and to help make your experience here in Kingsville and at TAMUK a better one!

SGA serves as the main governing body for the students. Our constitution explains that SGA "identifies and represents student interest, promotes student participation in the overall policy and decision-making processes of the University, enhances the quality and scope of education at the University, and promotes the general welfare of the student body." SGA works intimately with faculty, staff and the community to address the concerns, issues, and ideas that students have. Basically, we are here to represent you; therefore, we are always looking for your feedback about our campus and community. Over the years, we have also adopted the motto "for the students, by the students."

Our number one focus as college students should, of course, be our education. However, part of that educational experience also takes place outside of the classroom through involvement in campus activities or student organizations. Being a part of a student organization will give you the opportunity to meet other students, network with administrators, and develop and use skills that you can apply to your future career. I encourage each one of you to get involved in some way on campus.

If you have any questions, complaints, or recommendations please feel free to contact us either by stopping by our office (which is located in the Memorial Student Union Building room 201), emailing us at sgakingsville@gmail.com or calling us 361-593-3619. You can also like us on Facebook (facebook.com/tamuksga) or follow us on Twitter @tamuksga. I also encourage you to attend our weekly meetings which are held on Wednesdays at 8pm in the Memorial Student Union Building room 219C. Goodluck in all your endeavors this year Javelinas.

Sarah Schwandt
