My name is Lorenzo Santavicca and I am your Student Body President. As the official representative of nearly 40,000 students at Michigan State University, I am humbled and honored to serve in this office for a second year.
At MSU, every student understands the importance of dedication to and passion for pursuing their dreams, an ethic known to us in our institutional values. As the Associated Students of Michigan State University, we are dedicated to and passionate about serving the student body. Campus safety, health and wellness, college affordability, city relations, equity and inclusion, student organization funding, sustainability efforts, academic scholarships, and so much more — all are examples of the tireless efforts student government members undertake on behalf of the students of this university. Perhaps most importantly, we want all Spartans to know that ASMSU is the only organization on campus that is solely dedicated to representing the interests of the student body and doing all that it can to ensure that each student’s experience around East Lansing is vibrant, engaging, and unforgettable.
The Associated Students of Michigan State University may often be torn on what policies to pursue or what decisions are made with students’ best interests in mind. As your president, I am committed to resolving differences when I can, taking a firm stand when I cannot, and devoting all of my energy in the upcoming year to fighting on your behalf. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about student life or MSU in general, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter at @ASMSU_Pres.
Our weekly meetings are open to the public, and we welcome all students who wish to voice their opinion on any topic concerning student life. Moreover, there’s always room for one more; I invite you to be involved in your student government. The General Assembly (your elected voting representatives) meets each Thursday at 7 PM of the third floor of the Student Services building. I strongly encourage you to visit and learn more about how university decisions — decisions that impact your lives — are made.
Welcome back, and for many – welcome home!
Student Body President, ASMSU
