A Message from SGO...

Happy Holidays


This week wraps up the end of another busy and successful semester.  Our student leaders continue to achieve great things-- in the classroom, in their organizations, and in the community.


Spring will bring a multitude of exciting events and, of course, the opening of the brand new College Park Center.  Thank you for all that you have done this semester and we look forward to our continued partnership in 2012.  We wish you a very blessed and safe Winter Break with your family and friends and a happy New Year.
