Why get involved at Stonehill? Why SGA? (Anna Craft, Executive VP)

Hi there everyone… first off, thank you for taking the time to read this post; I know I certainly will never be able to express how much the support from the student body and Stonehill Community means to all of us in the Student Government Association.

Having said that, this week I would like to write a bit of a reflective post about why involvement is so important during the college years- and why I personally decided to run to be the Executive Vice President of SGA.

I will always remember the advice that so many Stonehill students (who have all since graduated) gave me when I was visiting the school prior to enrolling… without fail; they mentioned the importance of getting involved. As soon as I set foot on campus, I knew that finding a passion through a group would make this community feel like home.

I became involved in a variety of ways during my first two years at school… I did many programs through the Office of Intercultural Affairs (and spent a year as an ABS Leader)… I turned my passion for Stonehill into work for Admissions… I held a work-study position in the Financial Aid Office… I welcomed first year students to campus as a Peer Mentor… and I took advantage of many resources available to the student body.

After two very full years at Stonehill, I was lucky enough to study/ live/ intern abroad in Granada, Spain for my entire junior year. I can distinctly remember sitting in the plaza below my apartment, talking to a fellow Skyhawk (and very good friend) about how much I felt that I owed to Stonehill- I wanted so desperately to find a way to give back to the place that had given me so much; so many incredible opportunities and learning experiences, such a vast support system, and the confidence and strength to go out into the world.

For this reason, I decided to run for a position on the Executive Board of SGA as Vice President. I am so incredibly thankful for the opportunity, and feel very proud to be able to return some of the hard work, passion, and pride that go into all that happens at Stonehill College.

We are still in the process of organizing and decorating the new SGA office so pardon the mess! Feel free to stop by to say hi, ask us questions, or share your ideas with us anytime!

SGA is also launching the It’s on US Campaign which is an awareness campaign to help put an end to sexual assault on college campuses.  Those who sign the pledge of this campaign make a personal commitment to step off the sidelines and be part of the solution to campus sexual assault. Many colleges have adopted this campaign and the organization provides a lot of support and materials for them to do so.  Please be on the look-out for events supporting this campaign! You can learn more about this campaign and view a clip of our promotional video below.
