SGA report cards

SGA Presidet: Syene Jasmin

GOOD: Increased off campus security, helped to expand UPD jurisdiction, held financial aid forum as promised, and helped lead Project Haiti.BAD: Only carried out small portions of his platform, the homecoming fiasco, constant disagreement with his e-board, not always connected with the student body, put personal interests in front of the needs of the people, the “3.0 campaign” never saw the light of day, many things he “planned” to do already existed. Jasmin missed numerous committee meetings for special events (Feb. 1, Chancellor’s installation sub committee), and often operated in a reactive mode instead of a proactive mode.
