Over the next year, we will all be in pursuit of our higher education and along the way there may be concerns or ideas that can help make our university better. I encourage students to share your ideas with myself and my senate member colleagues to continue making Haskell better and to help develop your leadership qualities.
I hope each and every student has a great experience this year and good luck to everyone as our classes begin.
