A look into the SGA president’s head

As the term of Student Government Association president nears, Steven Jackson gives reflections of the years.Q: As you look back on your term as SGA president, what do you feel was your biggest accomplishment?
A: I feel my biggest accomplishment was seeing the fee for the renovation for a new state-of-the-art library be passed.

Q: Is there anything you wanted to do that you didn’t get the opportunity to do?
A: Have more fun; I spent a lot of time arguing with university administrators instead of working together to better the institution.

Q: What are your hopes for the Student Government Association after you leave?
A: I would like for SGA to continue to be a part of the process to help find answers to the problems that may arise instead of being a group of people who sit around and talk with no action.

Q: Is there any advice you can give to the future president coming in your place?
A: I would give him the same advice they gave me, which was to listen, reach out to as many people as you can and to keep in mind the only constituents you have are the students who elected him.

Q: What are your future plans?
A: My immediate plans are to decide whether i am going to go to law school or work for Teach For America and afterwards capitalize on any opportunities that may come my way.
