Friends, Students, Alumni and Staff,
Hello, my name is Jonathan Guajardo. As your new Student Government Association president, I would like to welcome you to what promises to be a wonderful year on our campus.
This is the first of many letters that will keep you informed about the various events throughout the year.
As SGA president, I have been working all summer, meeting with various organizations, administration, alumni and students in preparation for the 2011-2012 academic year. Over the summer, my team and I have been working hard to improve this campus and the overall college experience at UIW.
We have been cooperating with our student organizations such as the Red C, to bring a new level of spirit to our athletic teams and our campus. The new Red C T-shirt will be ready before our first home football game and we look forward to seeing a “sea of red” as the students wear it to all our athletic events.
We have been helping new organizations grow, such as the Convergent Media Club and the Pro-life Club. We have improved the SGA-sponsored Golden Harvest Can Drive, which promises to raise more food for the underprivileged in our San Antonio community than ever before. Through cooperation with UIWtv and KUIW, we will spotlight more athletic and student activities, as well as have a monthly campus-wide address on Channel 15. Whether you are a resident or commuter, we will continue to work to ensure you are continually updated about all our campus activities.
I will strive to create a great college experience and atmosphere to go along with a great education. My goal continues to be to have UIW hold a special place in your heart once you leave this University.
As Cardinals, we the students of the Incarnate Word play a vital role in this university. So let us thank God for our blessings and let us look forward to a wonderful year. Yes, it will require lots of hard work, but it also promises many great times to come. So get involved and become a part of UIW!
I wish everyone the very best for this, our next year, at the University of the Incarnate Word!
Jonathan R. Guajardo
