Voicing concerns, addressing issues and
informing the students is what the Student
Government Association (SGA) strives for every
year. This past year’s 2007-2008 SGA president,
Marco Cepeda, and vice president, Jacinto Casas,
had many accomplishments, but, like former SGA
officers, had to struggle with student apathy.
At the beginning of the semester, Cepeda
said he had three steps toward his goal of
ending student apathy. They were to actively
market SGA events, give away incentives such as
gift cards at events, and obtain feedback from
class representatives on students’ concerns.
“My main goal was getting more students
involved in our events and, compared to previous
years, we had really great turnouts in all of
our events,” Cepeda said.
