Dear UVM Students,
As the new SGA President I have the opportunity to take over the emails
previously sent out by Bryant Jones. The purpose of these emails is to keep you
updated on campus events, announcements, and student accomplishments. I
understand the overwhelming amount of emails the UVM student receives on a
daily basis, but I encourage you to at least check these out, as they contain
valuable information from all aspects of campus life. Because you will be
frequently hearing from me, usually on a weekly basis, I'd love any
suggestions on how to better this communication. If there is any information
you would like to get out to the student body feel free to email me directly at
[log in to unmask] and I will do my best to include it. Good luck over the
next couple weeks with the end of classes and finals! --Sarah
