Message from President Nino 

As student government continues to meet with campus administrators, it's important that we reminded  ourselves that we represent the voice of all students here at the Beach. We must always remember that as we work with our allies to determine new safety initiatives on campus, trainings for our employees to help them better serve our students  and ways to better steward student fees - a dvocating for students needs is our chief objective.

We can all be agents of change and if we want to see conditions for our students continue to improve we must work with one another to accomplish our goals. Success is not created individually, it requires us to all work with our allies in the classroom, in the administration and in our community. Know that ASI and I will continue to be your voice and work towards continued success for our students, we are here for you.

Go Beach!
