September Letter from the President

Fellow Golden Panthers,

On the 11th of September, we celebrate the life of FIU student and athlete Kendall Berry, honored those who lost their lives as a result of the 11th of September attacks and witnessed the swearing in of officers to the United States Army. With record attendance at FIU’s first home football game, we cheered on our football team with passion and enthusiasm. Despite an impressive performance, our beloved football team was unable to secure a win against Rutgers. In light of the un-presentenced level of school pride and spirit displayed by the university community, our football team is prepared to approach the remainder of the 2010 football season with a sense of purpose and a desire to win, all of which would not have been possible without your support.

At a recent Board of Trustees meeting, I voted in opposition to the smoking ban. I am of the opinion that if such a policy is to be impressed upon the university community, significant investments, whether financial or otherwise, be made in the implementation of the smoking ban policy. It is my hope that the implementation of the smoking ban includes an effective strategy to educate the university community on the objective of the policy.

Since the publication of the August Newsletter, SGC-MMC has been hard at work pursuing the best interests of you, the student body, all of which are outlined below.

Should you have any questions, comments and concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me us e-mail at sga@fiu.edu, stop by our office in Graham Center, Room 211, or contact us via telephone at 305.348.2121. On behalf of all of us at SGC-MMC, we wish you the best of luck as you navigate the fall 2010 semester!
