2014 - 2015 President's Welcome
I would like to welcome Rhode Island College students, administration, faculty, and staff to the Rhode Island College Student Community Government, Incorporated website. Change is constant and it is no difference with Student Community Government this year as we undergo the process of a new website. We appreciate your patience until that time. However, it is my hope that the SCG website and SCG itself can help you succeed in your time at Rhode Island College. Whether it is in campus life, academics, or something else student-related, SCG is here to serve you as students and your needs.
There are many opportunities both inside and outside the classroom in your time here at Rhode Island College but most of them will require you to take them. I encourage each of you to make the most of your time here at Rhode Island College and add value to our campus. It is the synergy, or creation of the whole, that will define us rather than the simple sum of our parts. SCG is here to help foster and facilitate that growth whether it be as a student organization or as a student.
You will face many challenges in your time at Rhode Island College. I am reminded of a Latin phrase that has been used by the Apollo program, “Ad Astra Per Aspera”, or “Through hardships to the stars”. The important thing to realize is that you are not alone in your journey to the stars. Student Community Government is there for you and offers a great deal as well. Student Parliament, committees, commissions, and of course student organizations will make your journey more enjoyable and hopefully give you a better chance to succeed.
Make the most of your dreams,
Robert Santurri Jr.#45
