Message from the USU Chair

Hello fellow Warriors and welcome to Stan State!

I am both honored and excited to be your University Student Union Board Chair this upcoming 2018-2019 Academic year. This will be my fourth year with the organization, and I along with Vice Chair, Jennifer Galeana-Vasquez, Secretary, Georgina Salgado, and the USU Board of Directors, will strive to ensure that the growth of the organization will continue to be everlasting.

This past year we have had the privilege to say "Goodbye" to our previous student union, and "Hello" to the future University Student Center. Although we will be missing our beloved building, you can be rest assured that the new center will offer a variety of study spaces, vendors, and an overall beneficial atmosphere that will help to enhance the beautiful campus we take pride in. Not only will there be more to offer in the programs and services sense, but also within the overall college experience. One thing I have learned from my years here at this University thus far is that learning--specifically acquiring key skills needed to be successful in the future--does not simply happen in the classroom. Whether it be leadership programs, Greek life, athletics, clubs, organizations or even attending sporting events, it is important that we take pride in our school and get involved as much as possible to ensure our overall growth.

I challenge you to take advantage of all this college has to offer and make the most out of the time you spend here. Do not be afraid to take risks, challenge yourself, meet new people and most importantly grow as an individual. These are the times to make mistakes and learn from them to better prepare you for the future. I hope you see the beauty and benefits this campus has to offer, and learn to love it just as much as our board members do. Have a wonderful time here and I cannot wait to see you around campus Warriors!


Thank you,

Allysa Gonzales

University Student Union Board of Directors Chair
