SGC-BBC share its ‘successes’ with students


Natalia Bertok, SGC-BBC Contributing Column Writer

The month of Oct. has been busy at The Biscayne Bay Campus’ Student Government Association. With tons of exciting events, homecoming 2016 was a lively week for students on campus.

SGC-BBC hosted the Tri-Council Reception for FIU alumni members, where SGA members engaged and networked with fellow Panthers. Throughout the Homecoming week, the student organizations at BBC hosted Blue & Gold: Unleashed, the Caribbean Bash and the Homecoming Dance. The events were a great success with many students coming to celebrate this year’s Homecoming week.

On Sept. 28, the SGC-BBC hosted the “SGA Kick Off” with a Casino Royale theme, although no actual gambling took place at the event. The Kick Off was an opportunity for SGA to communicate their future goals and vision for the school year with the administration and staff at BBC.

The executive board shared some of the ideas currently in place for SGC-BBC and interacted with faculty members, while also participating in games to win prizes.

Hurricane Matthew caused devastation for many citizens of Haiti and since the tragedy, the SGC-BBC team has been collecting various supplies that will be donated to Haiti for disaster relief.

Vice President Michema Lafontant has generously lead the team over the past month, organizing and reminding members of SGC-BBC about the Hurricane Matthew relief efforts. All the items collected before Oct. 17 have been donated to the Man Dodo Humanitarian Foundation, and items after that date have been donated to local church’s relief efforts for Haiti.

SGC-BBC cabinet council has had great success in appointing members to complete the cabinet. Leo Cosio, chief of staff has been dedicated to recruiting student members to join the cabinet with only one position remaining open to students. It’s a continuous goal of SGC-BBC to recruit talented and passionate individuals to the council.

Stay tuned for updates about events at SGC-BBC as November will be full of activities for students to engage in.
