A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT, SALLIE HAAS
To the FIT Community:
My name is Sallie Haas, and I am your Student Government Association President.
We all came to FIT for various reasons and from different backgrounds. We all have individual goals and methods to achieve those desired end results. We are a vibrant community with some of the greatest potential for success. It is truly inspiring to serve in this role and to have experienced this incredible community for nearly four years.
However, the immense passion and drive that runs through campus can often feel competitive; but there is something I have held onto these past few years that I would like to share with you. There is a higher probability that you will be working alongside someone on this campus than you will be competing with them for the same position at the same company at the exact same time. Remember that as you go through your classes, complete your internships, and apply for jobs. As you collaborate with one another, strive to inspire each other. The best work and most success this school has seen is that of students who came together across all backgrounds, majors, and interests.
As your Student Government Association President I will be here to support you in any way I can. Your student government works for you. Our organization is comprised of a Cabinet of 11 students representing each major facet of administration along with a communications and financial team. Additionally, we have a senate represented by 29 students from each academic major and other populations on campus.
Our purpose is to represent and advocate on behalf of the thousands of current FIT students, and we don’t take that responsibility lightly. We will be working tirelessly to ensure you have the best experience here possible. The SGA is looking forward to getting to know all of you and giving you a platform to voice your thoughts and opinions. We cannot be the voice of all students without connecting with all of you.
I am looking forward to this year, and I hope you are too!
