Welcome from SGA!
Welcome to the Fisher family! My name is Zaiya Dillon and I am so excited to be your Student Government Association (SGA) President.
SGA is one of the biggest on-campus organizations at Fisher. Its purpose is in the name: as the president, along with my amazing executive board and numerous branches, we ensure that your voice is heard and valued.
Senate meetings are one of many ways to initiate changes on campus from adding stop signs to starting campaigns. Involvement enriches your campus experience and we do our best to keep things fresh and interesting. Aside from Zumba and yoga, we are proud to introduce a new class: martial arts. On behalf of the SGA executive board, we love hearing new, creative ways to keep campus life vibrant. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us!
I remember reading this presidential welcome letter before arriving at Fisher and I was already planning how to leave my mark, but I also wanted to give myself time to adjust to a completely new environment. I was not a part of clubs, but I did attend a number of on-campus events that sparked new professional and personal connections. This is going to be the same for you! During your time at Fisher, I sincerely hope that you take these four years by the reins and take full advantage of the opportunities that come your way (and there will be many!).
There is so much advice that I am sure you have already heard: develop healthy study habits, maintain your overall health, get involved. These are all key, but my biggest advice to you is to remember who you are, where you came from, and where you are going. Naturally, you are going to change through college, but you should always remain humble and determined in the path that you are walking towards your future and beyond. Most of my college success has derived from being unapologetically myself and of course, making sure I was active in the classroom.
College will definitely be an experience and if you ever find yourself needing help or just needing someone to talk to, I am a resource for you.
Stay cool and see you in September!
