|SGA president welcomes students to MUSC
by Tyler Pierce
President, MUSC SGA
On behalf of
the MUSC Student Government Association (SGA), it is my honor to
welcome you to MUSC. Congratulations on all of your hard work that has
brought you to this point in your education. This is an
accomplishment that you should be proud of. It is truly an exciting
time here at MUSC.
The campus is undergoing changes like the new Ashley River Tower
hospital, the continued success of the simulation lab in the College of
Nursing, completion of the James B. Edward’s dental school, as well as
current construction of the drug discovery and bioengineering
facility. These facilities will provide an environment second to
none in our pursuit of academic excellence. Along with excellent
facilities, your expectations of a medical university most likely
include the rigors of an academic environment; however, we are here to
tell you that MUSC has more to offer than just an exceptional
The SGA has been working hard to ensure that you have a fulfilling
experience during your tenure here.
While at MUSC, the faculty and administration will spend countless
hours ensuring you have the best educational experience available. Just
as they are devoted to providing superior academic opportunities, the
SGA is dedicated to enhancing your life outside the classroom.
Throughout the year, we encourage you to take advantage of the
opportunities to interact with students from other disciplines and
broaden your cultural background, as well as enjoy a little rest and
relaxation in the Lowcountry. Whether it is an MUSC happy hour, Spoleto
event, Night at the Ballet, or a kayak trip through Shem Creek, you
will find something to suit your interests and maybe even discover new
ones. In addition, SGA continues to bring you the Back-to-School party,
Oyster Roast, Oktoberfest, Art Walk, Wine Tasting and Alhambra.
As the SGA continues to support students socially and culturally, we
also work tirelessly to improve your experience in other areas. During
the past few years, the SGA has established strong relationships with
administrators and continues to strengthen those interactions as it
represents the voice of the students to the administration. As your SGA
president, I will work hard to ensure that your voice is heard at the
university level. However, I can only do this with your help.
Feel free to contact me with suggestions through firstname.lastname@example.org, and stay
up to date with what the SGA is doing at http://www.musc.edu/sga. We look
forward to hearing your suggestions and working with you as we seek to
excel in our service to you and continue to strengthen and improve our
university here at MUSC.
