A Message From the Incoming SGSA President

A message from the 2016-2017 SOLES Graduate Student Association (SGSA) President, Judy Wai.
Coming to San Diego, I did not know a single soul, but joining SGSA provided me with the opportunity to find community at USD and be connected to a diverse graduate student body. SGSA is a graduate student organization on campus specifically designed to support the educational experience of graduate students within SOLES through on-campus and community bonding events, scholarship opportunities, networking experiences, and much more.
Joining SGSA my first year of graduate school has been one of the most impactful experiences. As cliché as that statement sounds, it is a true reflection of how rewarding being a part of SGSA has been. I joined SGSA as a First-Year School Counseling Representative and was provided with opportunities to attend Graduate Student Council meetings, socials such as brewery nights and Paint Nights, and other events that drew me closer to the wonderful people and resources within SOLES. After my first year of attending USD and joining SGSA, I have been provided with a community of friends and resources and gained skills and insights that I do not think I would have gained elsewhere.
For those who are not graduating or are new students, SGSA is currently looking to fill some open positions, such such as the Learning and Teaching Representative, Counseling and Family & Mental Health Professions Representative, the Leadership Studies Representative position, and First- Year Representatives. If you have any questions about the open positions or SGSA, please reach out via email at usdsolesgsa@gmail.com
As the incoming President of SGSA for the 2016-2017 academic year, I am ecstatic to meet you all and answer any questions you may have. I look forward to seeing you all soon!
Judy Wai
