SG COLA Senator Update
Greeting, COLA community! Welcome to RIT, freshmen and new faculty, and welcome back, returning students and faculty! My name is Alexander Van Hook, but family and friends call me Alex. I am from Upper Blacks Eddy, PA (Bucks County north of Philadelphia). I am a second-year Liberal Arts Exploration student and am considering Political Science as a major. I am Deaf and use sign language as my main method of communication. I also have congenital muscular dystrophy and use an electric wheelchair for mobility.
I am your Student Government (SG) COLA senator for 2012-2013 and I thank you to the COLA community for electing me last spring. In case you don't know what my position means, I am your liaison, or bridge, that observes and carries issues and feedback to our dean, James Winebrake, his office faculty, and to SG as well (if the issues have an impact on the RIT community in general).
My goals for this year relating to the COLA community are:
Those six goals aren't necessarily the limit I can do for the COLA community because there can be more issues that would be brought up from the community through the SAB, the dean's office, and a possible number of surveys. I am happy to be able to help out in any way I can. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by the SG headquarter on the first floor of Campus Center and say hello during my front-desk office hours, which are listed under this message; if you have any questions, issues, feedback, and/or opinions, or if you just want to meet me and say hello.
I will be using the newsletter from time to time so I can keep you all updated on my goals and on what's going on in the SG. You can also come to the SG Senate Meeting on Fridays, 1-3 pm, which is opened to any RIT members for listening. I will do my best to serve you all well. I am looking forward to working with you all and I wish you best of luck in the new academic year! LET'S GO RIT TIGERS!
